I’m using a space-icewm (spacefm)
I tried to change the ~/.config/spacefm/desktop0 but it overwrites itself, after restarting the session. if you remove the recording rights, then it is executed. I’m owner of config file.
By default, the desktop displays the contents of the ~ directory, not ~ /Desktop, how can this be changed?

Not true. By default in all antiX systems, the Spacefm desktop displays files in the ~/Desktop folder.
Add a file to ~/Desktop and see if you can now see it in the desktop.
If you haven’t changed much of SpaceFM configuration, I would recommend you replace it with the original one in /etc/skel/.config/spacefm and logout and login.
Spacefm desktop is not like rox desktop icon manager. Every time you add a file to ~/Desktop, a new icon appears, while in rox, it is a pinboard that ignores the contents of ~/Desktop and its configuration is troed in a file.
Edit: If you have your system set with a different language, you can leanr what your system onsiders to be the Desktop folder by executing this in terminal: echo $XDG_DESKTOP_DIR
