I am fairly new to Linux but I am learning all the time, so be gentle with me!

I am running SuSE 11.1 64 bit, KDE 4.2 with all the updates and I have encountered the following, so if you can help me out I will be very grateful!

1) at startup of KDE I have 2 Kickoff Application launcher icons, I normally delete 1, but how can I get just the one!

2) KPowersave does not dock!

3) user version of dolphin just doesn't show any of my directories within my home/username area, they are there! When I open a terminal and do a dir, the directories are highlighted in green!
