Lost my Trash, My Computer and Printer icons...


...off my desktop. Not sure how I managed that, but regardless of what I've tried or where I've looked I cant seem to bring them back to the desktop. I think it happen when I was changing the wallpaper...or perhaps when I was restoring my /home...???...not sure. Using OpenSuSE 11.0 with the classic KDE menu style.

Are you sure you haven't just turned off desktop icons?

Right click your desktop, select Configure Desktop, go to Behaviour, select Show icons on desktop.

Nexus...could my wallpaper cover..

up the icons?...I'm almost positive that when I changed the wallpaper they disappeared...I have tried to go with no wallpaper option but that had no affect...just guessing obviously.

From the KDE menu I finally got Home back...Send to Desktop option, it took several tries because I kept getting an error message that said it already existed...of course, I couldnt see it...but finally it appeared on the upteen try.
