there's one feature I really miss in i3: The big desktop-environments give you the possibility to let the filemanager display the content of your XDGDESKTOPDIR on the desktop. Of course while using a tiling window manager you can't see your desktop most of the time anyway, but it would be great for me to see the outstanding work right after login. Anyways: I tried to use various filemanagers for this purpose, but i3 treats the "desktop-window" as a normal floating window and that's of course not what I want.
Is there anybody who can tell me how to do this in i3 or whether this is even possible?
Thanks for your solutions and ideas!
edit: My distribution is Arch Linux if it matters.
