    Default Mouse Features under KDE4


    Hi there,

    how can I revert to the mouse functionality of KDE 3.5 after having
    installed KDE 4, i.e. that for instance the use of the right mouse key
    on the desktop offers the option of creating a new folder there, or
    right-clicking on an existing folder on the desktop lets me rename it or
    display the properties, or that I can drag and drop an item on the
    desktop into the recycle bin? Basically I was happy with KDE 3.5
    functionality, I only had to upgrade because an application I need is
    only available for KDE 4 (kdenlive 0.7), so now I'm missing these
    features I have become used to (also as a former Windows XP user).

    This is not a mouse issue but has to do with the Plasma development in
    the KDE4 branch. Bits of functionality are being added all the time and
    most of the features you are used to will be brought on as development
    continues.

    Sure, it is a mouse behaviour under KDE 4 issue, and my question is,
    where can I change the settings. Or do you mean that KDE 4 will
    automatically update one day in such a manner that for instance right
    mouse button on desktop will offer a menu with the features I am used
    to from KDE 3.5 (lets say "create new folder")??

    What made you think that kdenlive 0.7 only runs under KDE4??
    Have you even tried to run it under KDE3.x?

    Right click on desktop -> Add widgets -> Folder View -> Add Widget

    You'll get a semi transparent box at the top left corner. Now, inside
    it, you can create folders by right click, rename them and whatever you
    were doing in KDE3.

    Plasma is an entirely new concept of desktop. You can create as many
    folder views as possible, move them around and make them hold contents
    of any folder.
