I'm looking for the configuration file for PCManFM, the default file manager for LXDE.

Specifically, I want to change PCManFM's desktop directory which defaults to ~/Desktop/.

I'm using PCManFM version 1.2.5 on Arch Linux.

The configuration file is at ~/.config/pcmanfm/LXDE/desktop-items-0.conf.

To change the desktop folder, change the setting folder.

This is how my file looks:

[*]
wallpaper_mode=crop
wallpaper_common=1
wallpaper=/home/mb/images/simple_shapes.png
desktop_bg=#000000
desktop_fg=#ffffff
desktop_shadow=#000000
desktop_font=Sans 12
folder=/home/mb/superSpecialDir
show_wm_menu=0
sort=mtime;ascending;
show_documents=0
show_trash=1
show_mounts=0
