SuSE 9.1 users: desktop icon mouseclick behaviour

I've got a copy of the SuSE 9.1 LiveCD that I've been toying with lately, and I'm pretty sure that I'll probably move over to SuSE soon (especially if I can't fix X on my current installation), but there's one thing that bugs the hell out of me: with the live CD, single clicking a desktop icon opens the bloody thing. Is there any way to change this such that a doubleclick opens them? It gets very old, very quickly when two copies open at once, and I have a bad habit of randomly clicking on dekstop icons when bored.

Control Panel

Click on Control panel in the K Menu, choose "Peripherals" then click "Mouse" . Then on the "General" tab under icons, you should be able to change the behaviour. Thats it!

Coolness. Thanks for the reply; I haven't been able to verify this in the Live CD. So long as I can fix it in the distro proper, I'm happy.

Thanks again!
