From konqueror?

Just go to the directory in which you want to make a new one, rightclick in an open space in the large righthand side panel, and click 'create new' then 'directory'

The keyboard shortcut is F10.

open up a console, cd to the directory you want to create the new directory in and then use the mkdir command.

Or just
mkdir ~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/pics
from any directory - you can tab-complete the front stuff.

-- Can't get it to work? What happened?

Definitely get used to the TAB autocomplete function in the terminal. It will ensure you are typing things correctly, which is likely the reason for the above mentioned error. The other option, but rather one NOT to use in this instance since all above directories are likely already created would be the -p flag:
mkdir -p ~/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/pics
And it will create all the directories below it up to the final drectory 'pics'. But since .kde/share/apps/ksplash probably already exists it's likely either:
a. .kde3 instead of just .kde
b. you missed the . before the .kde
Or
c. You are fishing around in the wrong directory?

Cool

Well, that's what MasterC was saying - try trickykid's suggestion in this case - you must be missing a directory in the chain. cd to your target until you get a 'not found' and then make *that* directory and the ones below it.

You're probably going to need to create /ksplash and /pics.

Yes. the "ksplash" directory is mot likely not there by default, so you need to create it first.

cd .kde/share/apps
mkdir ksplash
cd ksplash
mkdir pics
