Home Documents Desktop Icon on Lubuntu LXDE
Creating a Home or Documents desktop  shortcut icon in LXDE based os is very easy. Just create an empty file in desktop and put some code their and save. It's done! You have created Home and Documents desktop icon in LXDE based os like Lubuntu, Peppermint, Salix, LinuxMint Lxde etc.



For HOME icon:
At first create an empty file using 'Leafpad' in desktop with write clicking on anywhere. Name it HOME. Then put the codes below in this empty file and save.
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Icon=system-file-manager
Name=Home Folder
GenericName=Home Folder
Comment=open home folder in PCManFM
Categories=FileManager;Utility;Core;GTK;
Exec=pcmanfm
StartupNotify=true
Terminal=false
MimeType=x-directory/normal;inode/directory;
After creating the HOME icon or shortcut folder on desktop, double click on it. Pcmanfm will open to browse your computer.

For TRASH icon:
Same method. At first create an empty file 'Leafpad' in desktop with write clicking on anywhere. Name it TRASH. Then put the codes below in this empty file and save.
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Icon=user-trash
Name=Trash
GenericName=Trash
Comment=open trash in PCManFM
Categories=FileManager;Utility;Core;GTK;
Exec=pcmanfm trash:///
StartupNotify=true
Terminal=false
MimeType=x-directory/normal;inode/directory;
After creating the TRASH icon or shortcut folder on desktop, double click on it. Pcmanfm will open to browse your computer. You may follow the another instruction published in this Lxde forum but nothing will happen after completing.

Run the command below in terminal or a command box (using Alt+F2).
lxshortcut -o ~/Desktop/Documents.desktop
A window will pop up and open. Fill the second field (command field) with "pcmanfm" or "pcmanfm trash:///". But I am sorry to say that nothing will happen.

I will tell you how to create a 'Documents' 'Desktop' 'Downloads' 'Music' 'Video' folder shortcut icon launcher on desktop in LXDE in next post. Browse now.
