Thread: Desktop and DesktopFolder 11.1 KDE4.1

    Default Desktop and DesktopFolder 11.1 KDE4.1


    When I right click on an application in the launcher and select "Add to
    Desktop" it appears on the desktop but not in the DeskTop Folder.
    Where exactly are the items on the Desktop stored?
    Is there a way to move them to the desktop folder, where they are
    better behaved (e.g. auto arrange to grid)

    You should be able to drag and drop to the desktop folder

    go to /usr/share/application
    you will see a lot files with .desktop . copy the file you want to your
    home desktop folder.

    Thanks kobolds, the drag and drop works as suggested.

    I am going to assume that the "traditional" right click on an
    application and selecting 'put on desktop' is supposed to be putting it
    into the Desktop Folder, but does not due to a bug (feature?)
