cant arrange desktop icons the way i want on kde?


so i am in the stages of experiementing and right now, on Linux Mint KDE, there doesnt seem to be a way to arrange my desktop icons in the way i want
the icons always want to be aligned/sorted on there own even if i click lock off and snap to grid off as well
ive tried folder view, default desktop and newspaper but it hasnt worked so far
is there a way to be able to arrange my icons anyway i want?

If KDE is a little like Gnome, right-clicking on the desktop and choosing to uncheck "keep aligned" should help...
