    Desktop icons

    I am using KDE4 and when i save anything to the desktop, it doesnt behave as a normal file, right clicking only bring up widget options. Also drag and drop wont work is there any way around this?
    Thanks:

    I don't think there is. KDE4 has a very different approach to the desktop location. I have found it to behave unexpectedly with regards to file management. See this page (text search for "shove")

    for more info on where the KDE4 desktop is headed.

    Really interesting article, thanks for the link, will be very interested in KDE4.1.x seems that will have a clearer idea of the direction of the "new" KDE.
    Im willing to explore new realms of Desktops!
