Thread: Desktop Icon Arrangement on KDE Plasma

  1. #1

    Default Desktop Icon Arrangement on KDE Plasma

    Hi everyone, I have just started using openSUSE. I have already set up a working workstation system.
    I find an anomaly that I cannot resolve.
    The icons on the desktop move and don't stay where I put them.
    Also I can't find a way to position the icons NOT aligned to the grid.
    Specifically, for example, when I click on the ASA firewall manager, the software opens and the icon moves to the top left.

    Any idea what I may have mistakenly configured?

    Thanks a lot to everyone

    You can move them around the grid and then lock them. Pretty sure they have to be aligned left/right and rows/columns

    You may have configured the sort by date.
    Click on an empty spot on the desktop with the right mouse button, choose "Icons" and then "Sort By": you should select "Unsorted" to have the behavior you desire.
    You can also lock them (right click on desktop => Icons => select "Locked"), but I find that it does not always works the way it should.

    Hope this helps

    Hi,
    no, i have "unsorted", but the position of the icons is not free, but aligned to the grid.
    If i want to put an icon free, the icon set the position next to my unclick, aligned to the grid.

    Also the icons are surely blocked, but when I start some applications, the icon still moves to the top left.
    Any idea?
