    Add the widget Folder View. It'll show a "container" called Desktop Folder.
    Now you can drag and drop anything from the menu.

    There is also another way for those who are used in KDE3. If you right click on your desktop in the empty space, choose "Appearance Settings". On the dialog box that appears the top block of settings is named "Desktop Activity". There is a dropdown list called "Type". Choose "Folder View" from that list and apply the settings. Now your desktop works as in KDE3, having shortcut icons. By this way you can add shortcuts in the way you are familiar to (right click on the desktop, Create New... etc.). Also your widgets and plasmoids work fine.

    Also from the kicker ( little green lizard bottom left ) right click any program icon and select " add to desktop ".

    In gnome, right click on a file and click on 'Make link'... Although it doesn't work for folder, I don't know why.
    why do people open source?
