To delete the desktop icons, just open MC and navigate to /share/applications and look for the desired files. Highlight and hit F8 to delete. I believe you want to delete Linvideos.desktop and mariobros.desktop.

Nope. VLC won't work on retro or default OS. The required libraries and dependencies don't exist and/or are too old in both those systems.

Cheers.

Hey y'all

I'm reinstalling the retro OS, and would like to have my xmodmap loaded at boot time
Would anyone have a suggestion as to where I would add the xmodmap command?

By the way, I noticed that the links in the 4th tab to load a specific keymap don't seem to work.  I get an error when clicking on them, and no keymap is loaded.

Thanks in advance

Update: found it after trying to edit a bazilion files
There's a /etc/init.d/xkb.data, that contained only the xmodmap.uk line
I replaced the content by xmodmap.fr
Then I copied the xmodmap for my surfone to /up/share/xmodmap/xmodmap.fr and to /share/xmodmap/xmodmap.fr
That did the trick
