We're updating the files in /etc/skel that control the creation of a new user's desktop to match new default.

MX-Fluxbox update this morning shows a lot of "warnings." The warnings just mean that a package doesn't control those files anymore, but the directories aren't empty so they aren't being deleted. Subsequent updates won't have them.
