    Default Desktop folder Gone after lastest upgrade. 06/24/2011

    After one of the latest upgrade/patches the desktop folder disappeared. It was there when the session was opened, the session hung (I was able to get in from the network).
    When I restarted KDE the folder was gone. Anyone else have this issue?

    Running nvidia with twinview on opensuse 11.4 x86_64

    Hi, first of all, did you check if your desktop folder still exists in your home directory? Maybe you've accidentally deleted it.

    Its easy to put a folder back on the desktop in KDE4. I typically have 2 or 3 folders.

    Simply unlock widgets. Then right click on the task manager/bar on the bottom of the screen > select panel options > add widgets, scroll and add (drag) the folder widget to the desktop. Then tune it. If you still have the /home/username/Desktop directory, you can simply point the new folder to that old directory.

    Do NOT forget to lock widgets when you are complete.
