Dear list
my question is simple: I use KDE with fedora 9 and I want to enable
the icons on the desktop. Now, I have only the backgroup pic.
So do lots of us.  Stay tuned for KDE4.2 in January.  Hopefully it will
implement this.

Add widget -> Folder view.
(Can be configured to view a certain directory with .desktop shortcuts)
That is such a lame work around.  You need to explain that it doesn't
display icons on the desktop as they were in KDE3.5.x.   I think this is
what the OP is asking for.
That's not a workaround, that is _the_ way to display icons on files
on a desktop.

in KDE 3.5, you can only have ~/Desktop , in KDE 4.x, you can have any
folder, esp. consider kioslaves. How is this a regression?


You do know that he's a troll, and as such, he'll piggy-back on any
thread that looks like a good starting point for
yet-another-useless-spam-war on why-he-doesn't-like-KDE-4 and
why-Fedora-doesn't-suite-his-needs and/or
why-he-rather-switch-to-Ubuntu-but-but-rather-not-as-he-has-nothing-better-to-do, that will fill my junk-mail-box with 200 useless emails.

... But what I don't understand is:
Why on Earth are you playing his game?
