    Icon woes. FreeBSD 5.4+Fluxbox


    Hello, I'm using FreeBSD 5.4. I'm trying to make my Fluxbox look cool so I'm using idesk for icons, they are looking cool and all but everytime I do:
    Code:
    idesk &
    It just multiplies my icons, so I have lots of them. Hence this pic:
    How do I get rid of these? (Don't say trash can....). Thanks for the help.

    Fixed it sorta. I rebooted and now it's gone, but...

    My start up does not go well, this is what my .xinitrc looks like:
    Code:
    fluxbox
    idesk
    and it boots into Flux without any icons. But if it looks like this:
    Code:
    idesk
    fluxbox
    then there will be only icons on the right side with a gray background, no toolbar or anything. It's either one way or the other - have idesk or have Fluxbox. So, I thought of this line in the .xinitrc:
    Code:
    fluxbox && idesk
    that doesn't work out too well, it'll just boot into idesk mode I believe, and the Fluxbox I can access isn't really Flux, it has the toolbar there among some old stuff but my new edited menu is not there. Any ideas?
