I have a user who wants to edit the file that controls the front panal and sub-panal of the toolbar.  Where is the file located that allows you to add an application or application icon to the toolbar?

Thanks

You're talking about CDE, right? CDE has been around for a long time - dates back to at least Solaris v2.6, if not further. So which VERSION of CDE? Running on what VERSION of Solaris? Help us out here - we're Experts, not mindreaders.

Generally, all the sub-menus on the CDE toolbar have an option to add an icon. Simply click on a particular pull-up menu and select the "Add an icon" entry.

I'm sorry should have giving more detail.  The user is running the Solaris CDE desktop on Solaris 8.

OK, CDE v1.4, on Solaris v8.

For each icon-set on the toolbar, when you click on that up-arrow, the relevant menu slides up. Usually, on each one, there is an "Install icon" as the first entry.

There's also a manual procedure described at --> http://sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-25-47118-1&searchclause=cde%20install%20icon

Hey bburton,

You will probably need to do some research on the web and on Sunsolve.sun.com as to how to configure the files (also do a man dtwm)…but the following files control much of the CDE desktop behavior, including modifications you can make to the front panel controls…

/usr/dt//config/C/sys.dtwmrc
/usr/dt/app-defaults/C/Dtwm
/home/<user>/.dt/sessions/current/dt.resources

Best of Luck!
