    It is possible to remove rox –pinboard = antiX-icewm from system startup. I don’t need rox-filer to manage the desktop or do I need icons on it. It consumes 25MB of memory and it’s not even running.
    I tried, but something different like rox –RPC runs.

    >_ cat default-desktop 
    rox-icewm

    I like rox-filer, if possible I prefer to keep it.

    Thank you.

    Edito: I run pkill rox at the start of the session.

    PS: The latest rox-filer update forced me to add this to ~/.icewm/winoptions:

    Rox-filer.dTitleBar: 0
    Rox.dTitleBar: 0
    ...
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 618528 Feb 7 08:39 rox
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 Feb 7 08:39 rox-filer -> rox

    Try the icewm desktop instead of rox-icewm (the default).

    F1 at the login screen cycles through the desktop list

    An alternate way, is this:

    Once you boot to desktop, on the main menu, choose Desktop > Other Desktops > IceWM
    Then reboot.

    Thereafter, ROX will not load a pinboard. No icons on desktop; otherwise, the desktop will remain the same.
    Future reboots will be the same, as well. (Also as BobC said, above.)
    🙂

    I didn’t think it was that simple, 🙂
    Another alternative,

    >_ cat .desktop-session/default-desktop 
    rox-icewm
    
    >_ cat .desktop-session/log
    [...]

    PD: ps_mem.py -> 14.3 MiB rox
