I installed pcmanfm on my rpi which runs on raspbian lite and uses openbox as desktop manager. I tried putting a text file in the "templates" folder but it didn't show up under "create new...", even after restarting. If there is an extra programm I need for this this to work please tell me. Thanks!

Solution I found on the Internet:

Code: Select all

mkdir -p ~/.local/share/templates
Make a .desktop file.
Content:

Code: Select all

[Desktop Entry]
Comment=<Comment on template>
Icon=<Icon name for template>
Name=<Name for template>
Type=Link
URL=<path to the template file>

The problem actually was that I changed my username from pi to Pi once and pcmanfm was searching for /home/pi/Templates.
