Renaming device icons?
I have installed Mepis 3.3.1 on an ancient Celeron 433 - works great.
Mepis has created icons for devices and placed these on my desktop - these are for a CD reader and CD writer, amongst other devices. I want to rename these icons to something that I can readily understand, but the available 'rename' function that appears when right-clicking the drive does not effect a permanent change. Any clues please?
Can't you just right click on the drive icon and then click properties
and where you see the 'hda' or whatever yours says
just highlight the 'hda', type the new name then click ok?;)
its not necessary to use such an old version.
Mepis antiX is the thing for such machines
I am sure the original poster has moved on already.
