Accidental Deletion of "home.desktop"


I am running Mandrake 9.2 and am using KDE. When I was selecting a location to save a pdf file, I accidentally double-clicked on "home.desktop" and replaced it with the pdf file. How can I restore "home.desktop"?

i've done this in 9.1, it _probably_ also works on 9.2...

right click on the desktop...

create new > link to application

give it the name "Home.desktop" (without the quotes) in the "general" tab...

pick an icon for it (by clicking the icon in the "general" tab), i think the default (on 9.1) is "kfm_home", which is in the "applications" category of "system icons"...

go to the "execute" tab and in the "command" box, put:

kfmclient openProfile filemanagement

that should do it, hit okay and the new icon should appear on the desktop...
