Can't see anything on desktop


When i log in as root, My files don't show up on the desktop, but I can see them if i go to /root/Desktop. Also, right clicking on the desktop doesn't show the menu. It works when im logged in as me, just not as root.

Sorry, you could have asked without the sarcasm though :P. I use the KDE desktop v3.1
