1. My desktop shows me my 2 mounted CD Drives, how can i remove this
icon from the desktop. (when i right click on it i i only have 'unmount' and 'properties')
This is in kde 3.2
KDE menu ---> Settings ---> Control Center
Click on Desktop ----> Behavior
You will see three tabs at the top on the right-side window.
Click Device Icons
Whatever is checked is displayed on the desktop.
2. Drag - whenever i drag an icon on my desktop and release the mouse the icon
only gets moved if i dragged it a certain distance, about a centimeter or even more. that
is, if I only drag the icon a centimeter it doesnt move. how can I fix this?
Right Click on the Desktop
Click align to grid
see if that fixes it. If not, click align again. Try lining up vertically to see if that snaps it out of its funk. I've had problems with that sometimes, and it just takes a little clicking around and rearranging to break it's funk. Hope this helps.
