SYNOPSIS

xfdesktop
xfdesktop [options]

DESCRIPTION

xfdesktop manages the desktop itself in the Xfce 4 Desktop Environment. This includes drawing the desktop backdrop and providing a right-click applications menu and middle-click window list menu, as well as drawing icons on the desktop. Only one instance of xfdesktop can be running at a time, and should be started by running xfdesktop without any arguments.

XDG_CONFIG_HOME
  Specifies the root for all user-specific configuration files. If this environment variable is not present, it defaults to ~/.config
XDG_CONFIG_DIRS
  Specifies a colon-separated list of system directories in which to search for configuration data. If this environment variable is not present, it defaults to /etc/xdg

FILES

xfdesktop searches for a menu description file in $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS/menus/xfce-applications.menu. xfdesktop can also use a user-customized menu in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/menus/.
