I think you should do a "SymlinkProgram -c overwrite ROX-Filer" to
replace the conflicting links with the files provided by the filer, Or
chances are that stuff won't work.
After you've done this you also need to do this in a shell (as gobo):

update-mime-database /System/Links/Shared/mime

And then I suggest to set up a dir called /ROX-Apps, where you put
AppDir's (you can link the filer here from
ROX-Lib2 and ROX-CLib is needed for many stuff, put this in /ROX-Apps
and then do "ln -sf /ROX-Apps/*Lib* /System/Links/Libraries" and Rox
AppDir's will find them...
