Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

it is only a work-around, but a simple one. i have had the same problem on a Yoper installation (only installation i have using the new KDE).
1. Right-click desktop.
3. Make sure only "Align to Grid" is checked.
4. Organize all your icons how you like them.
5. Repeat steps 1-3 except UNSELECT "Align to Grid"
6. Log out and back in and see if it works.
the problem seems to be the alignment process. i select "Align to Grid", organize the desktop, then immediately turn it off. that solved it here.
hope it helps,
i do like the new kde by the way though ;-)
Mepis is an installable live cd. I'd say that it easily gives Knoppix a run for it's money. Basically, it's meant to be used either way. It's a live cd *meant* to be installed, if desired. It's probably just about the best Debian distro out there. www.mepis.org It's worth your time...
Well, yeah. This is certainly more userfriendly...and a whole heckuva lot quicker to install. You answer about 4 questions, then you're off...you can walk away. All the power of Debian...none of the work.
hmm, i wonder if automated display settings might affect it? i noticed on my wife's notebook that all the icons will move a pixel or two when i move one of them after an icon size change.
have you tried to replicate the problem on different hardware or different installations? if you can find a way to replicate the problem consistently on any hardware etc, then you can help the developers greatly.
I'll see what I can come up with. I do believe that it has something to do with automatic settings, although I just can't seem to come up with anything consistent. It has happened to me on different versions of KDE (3.2 and 3.3.1) as well as different distros. (Mepis primarily, though.)
