I'm sure I'm not the only person to be having this issue, but I can't seem to come up with a specific enough search criteria to narrow it down to something useful.
When I go from kde to gnome, my kde icons (the desktop links specifically) show up, iconless and non-functional in my gnome desktop. I can delete them, but when I return to kde, I have to create new drive, cdrom, floppy etc. icons. When I go from gnome to kde, the same thing happens - I have a non-functional gnome Start-Here and home with no themed icon on my kde desktop.
This has been happening since kde 3.2 and gnome 2.4. It happens in my updated SuSE 8.2 and every slack-current install I have done (4 or 5 different computers).
It seems KDE and Gnome are now sharing a desktop config file even though the icon links are incompatible.
Is it possible to make these 2 desktops live together in peace? (without going iconless on the desktops) I generally use KDE or XFce4 but I like to try gnome too and this makes it a pain.
Sorry if this is often asked I can't find it
