Thread: Desktop icon issues in KDE 4.6

    Default Desktop icon issues in KDE 4.6

    Hi
    I have installed OpenSuse 11.4 with KDE 4.6 in my hp dv3 2110eg laptop. Everything is working fine except for few annoying glitches. My desktop has 'folder view' setting and some my personal files in the desktop have long names. When i try to rename these files in the Desktop, I am unable to see the full name.
    Click here to view the snapshot of the problem.
    Is there a way to rectify this problem ?

    I would also like to get rid of the '+' and '-'signs in my Desktop icons. I removed the '+' and '-' signs for folders in Dolphin settings but I am clueless when it comes to doing the same for Desktop icons.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    In the desktop, right click configure
    You can adjust the number lines for the icon names Eg: 1,2,3, and so on..

    Thank you for your reply, I tried your suggestion just now and it seems to work. However, in KDE 3.6 (which I was using till last week), one can set the number of lines for the icon names to 1 or 2 so that the long names don't clog the desktop screen. Yet when we click on the icon for renaming, the full name did appear, independent of the icon name line number settings. Have they changed this feature in KDE 4.X ? If yes, is there a way to tweak the KDE config files to have the KDE 3.6 feature for desktop icon names ?

    kde3 and kde4 are like chalk and cheese
    So very different.

    You do understand that kde4 has desktop activities and different desktop types: Eg; folder view, search and launch
    But you should be able to get it something like you are familiar with in kde3
