I'm having a dumb attack here, Eric.  Typing mtoolsfm from a terminal is
no go.  So, I went looking for it:

[gavin local ~]$ locate mtoolsfm

[gavin local ~]$ locate mtools

[gavin local ~]$ which mtoolsfm
/usr/bin/which: no mtoolsfm in

So, mtools can be invoked with /usr/bin/mtools, but then I have to enter
the command parameters to make it function.  Should I RTFM to get mtools
working??  But, it seems that you've made it easier than this, so why is
mtoolsfm apparently useless on my standard k12ltsp v4.2.0 without
desktop icons?
