    Default How do I create a desktop icon for KDE 4.*7* ?

    I looked here: http://forums.opensuse.org/pre-relea...4-desktop.html
    but it doesn't work for current KDE. Google didn't get me to anything more recent. Anyway, there is no "icon" applet any more, so there must be a new (non-obvious) technique for adding icons to your desktop and I did not guess the right Google search to locate the information. Yes, I find this irritating. Sorry. Thank you!

    * Google doesn't care that much about thread age.
    * I don't think it should require Googling at all, though that is a KDE issue.
    * It should not be necessary to read KDE docs, even KDE quick start docs,
    every time there's a new release. "should not" being a key part of that
    sentence.
    * the answer is to get to "desktop settings" and change the thing to "folder view".
    ("right click on root/desktop" does not always work....)
