    Question How do I Put programs in my Desktop Folder, etc.

    I have openSUSE 11.1 KDE 4.1.3 and can't find a way to put programs such as gimp in to the "desktop folder" is there a way? additionally,how do I put a different wallpaper in each of my desktops? I could very easily in 10.3 KDE3, just can't find away to do it in the new system. Can it be done and if so how?

    Only one wallpaper in kde4 at the moment

    If you have a desktop folder
    Go to the app you want via the Start button - Press Hold mouse button on it and drag to desktop folder - copy here

    Ye Gads, how easy was that! Thanks. I tried everything but that procedure. I guess one should never pass over the obvious.

    As for the different wallpaper I don't think that'll be implemented (my opinion) since there's the Activities feature. Go to the cashew icon on desktop, click on reduce and add an activity. The new activity can have a wallpaper and different plasmoids. Activities can be managed via the Activity bar plasmoid.
    This is still under heavy development, though, so if you are still in 4.1.3 it might not even be there.
    It is abhorrent the spiritual greed of those that knowing something, do not seek the transfer of such knowledge.
