    Kubuntu desktop won't respond after making shortcuts

    I've been using Ubuntu for about 3 weeks now, 64-bit Unity wasn't exactly what I was looking for, so I installed KDE using

    sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

    It works well, but with a slight problem. Whenever I create a new shortcut on the Desktop, the center of the screen has this swirling icon. While this is there, I can't left-click on anything on the desktop. I can right click, but all I can do is select the default menu options. I can also click everything on the panel and use applications like normal. The only way I can make the desktop functional is to log out or shut down, then log back in. No amount of waiting helps.

    I'm going to guess that, for some reason, the desktop is having trouble refreshing. I have no idea why this problem might be occuring, so if any extra info can help this problem get solved, I'll try to answer your question.

    Just for the fun of it

    Right click on your desktop click "Desktop settings" From there click the "Layout" dropdown menu, Slect "Folder View"

    See if that does anything different.
