HI guys ,
just formatted my windows PC and installed linux for the first time. ( so I am a complete noob)

How do i make the desktop icon to show "Personal ( 2nd line)  Folder"  It currently only showing "Persona..."

only reason why Im asking is  I  have some icon of the same file  1st = 32 bit  2nd = 64 bit ... some time need to use the 32 bit copy

I haven't tried it myself, but you could append the following to your .gtkrc-2.0:
Code: [Select]
style "xfdesktop-icon-view" {
    XfdesktopIconView::ellipsize-icon-labels = 0
    XfdesktopIconView::label-alpha = 0
}

widget_class "*XfdesktopIconView*" style "xfdesktop-icon-view"

Please note that
Code: [Select]
XfdesktopIconView::label-alpha = 0handles the transparency of the icon text, so you can delete it f you don't like the effect it has on your desktop :-)

You could try typing the following in the terminal (make sure the prompt says "~"):
Code: [Select]
nano .gtkrc-2.0
On a fresh install that file should contain
Code: [Select]
gtk-menu-popdown-delay = 0
gtk-menu-bar-popup-delay = 0
gtk-enable-animations = 0
gtk-timeout-expand = 0

Then copy the lines from here and paste them (ctrl+shift+v) after the above lines.

When finished exit nano (ctrl+x) and confirm overwrite. Log off and on again to see if things are as you like.
