    Too bad you can't just drag and drop from the desktop to the folders.

    But the Desktop is different now in KDE4

    Most of us a keeping up to date with the Factory repo and so are now on 4.1.2

    I don't use the feature myself, but the folder view option could possibly do what you are suggesting.

    If you have not already upgraded kde4, why not do so. I would recommend installing kde3 though if you haven't already done so, it's still more or less an essential fall back.

    To add kde3 use Yast software management - filter by patterns and select kde3base and kde3desktop
    you can then add the kde3 buld service repo
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE3/openSUSE_11.0
    then in software management - filter by repo and select the new kde3 and update all in this list if newer ver avail.

    kde4 factory repo's:

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.0

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.0_KDE4_Factory_Desktop

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Extra-Apps/openSUSE_11.0

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/Qt/openSUSE_11.0

    If you have added any old kde4.0 repo's you need to disable them

    You can drag and drop files from the desktop (folder view) to folders or between folders
