My Desktop Device icons disappeared after update
 
I have been running kubuntu for several years.
Two days ago I selected Update on the package manager.
When kubuntu 7.10 rebooted; the Desktop Device icons
were gone. The update installed kde 3.5.8. I went to
/usr/share and right-clicked on the Windows HDD icon;
and the Device icons appeared on the Desktop. However,
when kubuntu booted the next time; the Device icons
were gone. I tried creating no Device Links;(right-
clicking on Desktop) but kde won't accept them.

My Desktop Device icons disappeared after update
 
I finally found out the CORRECT way to
fix this problem. First:right-click on Desktop
Second:select create new
>device link>hard-drive
Third:when window opens;type in
your chosen name.
Fourth:left-click on device tab
and enter: /dev/device-name assigned by OS
Fifth:left-click OK
Device icon will appear randomly on Desktop.
You can position icon by right-clicking
and selecting icons.
The device name is most important; because an error message will
appear if it isn't correct.
