Question This is kind of annoying - regarding desktop drive icons in KDE 3.1


When I mount a drive, in my example - CD-RW, by right clicking the desktop icon (I have unmounted drives showing on my desktop) and selecting mount, the icon gets displaced. It seems to snap to a predetermined position on the desktop.
Then when I unmount the drive, the icon snaps a little closer to the left edge of the desktop.

In any event, the icon snaps to this area of the desktop, and disregards where I had the icon previously.

Is there any way to stop this behavior ? I would like for my drive representing icons to stay where I put them, regardless of mount state.

Try right-clicking on your desktop, and seeing if you have "Align to grid" selected for Icons.

That doesn't seem to change the behavior. Any more ideas ?

As far as your class A valve amp, what have you got ? A Boogie perhaps.

I myself go for the brute strength of a class A/B amp with 6L6's. Like my 1975 Fender Super Twin. Came with 6 power tubes !
I modded it to use only 4 6L6's. 100 watts is fine for me. Plus less strain on an old output transformer.

I design and build my own - 4 x EL34s running flat out in SE class A - 11 watts through toroidal output transformers - and no overall negative feedback. Mmmmm.

Sorry about the icons, though.

Thumbs up

Cool ! I myself am an ex-amp tech.
I designed much of the circuitry in my amp. Changed the PI to Blackface design ( original design was for 'ultra clean' sound.CBS engineers were clueless ), bypassed the parametric EQ (another bad idea by CBS engineers), and gave that puppy a distortion circuit with 4 triodes -12ax7's, (and you should have heard what the CBS guys thought was distortion in the original design).

It's nice, smooth distortion, or with a flip of the switch, I can add cliping, signal diodes on the last preamp stage for that ultimate crunch sound. It's got gain to spare.

Anyway, it's cool to see fellow amp-head lurking around the forums.

I really wish that I could fix this KDE glitch though.

I also wonder if there is a way to get rid of all of the extra information that appears with the drive icon.

IE - My CD-RW appears as 'CD Recorder (cdrw)(not mounted)'
and I would like it to look like this - 'CD-RW' without all of the extra info. Same for my hardrives :

'Hard Disc (hda6) mounted at /E'

I would like it to read :

'E'

Is there a way to do this ?

I can do this one - go to KDE control Centre - Look n Feel - Behaviour - Unselect "Display devices on desktop" - done - I hope.
