    Default Complete n00b, need help...

    OK, I have MacBook Pro 15.4" running OpenSUSE 11.1 through Parallels

    Using KDE, had a tile on the top left of the screen with 4 icons in it.
    Firefox Etc.
    Wanted to empty Wastebin & clicked on the little bin icon in the right
    hand bar of the tile.
    The Tile disappeared, how do I get it back? (I did say n00b!)

    Also, when switching desktops, how do I get the cube thing to come up?
    Do I need to install something else?

    if you have a standart install you shoulc have all te packages to get
    "the cube thing" up and running.

    When you go to "configure desktop" > desktop > desktop effects. is the
    "enable desktop effects" checked. If not what does it say?

    You migth have to edit your xorg.conf file.
    The xorg.conf file lives at /etc/X11>.

    it migth have someting like:
    Section "Extensions"
    Option "Composite" "off"

    change this to:

    Section "Extensions"
    Option "Composite" "Enable"

    if this doesn work check if your machine has 3d support...
    if that doesn't work. please post again.

    Open Dolphin/Konqueror and drag the Desktop icon onto the desktop; use
    right click (not sure what that is on a Mac) to configure.

    Open Configure Desktop - look at the options under Desktop

    I think you managed to close the "Folder View" widget.
    To bring it back up, rightclick on the desktop (unlock widgets if
    they're locked), select Add Widgets and double click on "Folder view" in
    the list, or just select and click Add widget at the bottom of the

    To enable the cube go to the launcher (start menu), select
    Desktop Settings > Desktop > Desktop Effects > Mark the 'enable
    effects' checkbox if it isn't marked already.
    Go to the second All Effects tab and mark "Desktop cube". Default
    hotkey is ctrl+f11 but you can customize it with the wrench icon in the
    same window.

    If you're unable to enable desktop effects you most likely don't have
    your videocard drivers installed, enabling the nvidia or ati repository
    and doing an update should take care of that.
