lost configure my computer Icon?


I have upgraded my Mandrake 9.2 to Mandriva and somehow lost the Configure your computer Icon. Can anyone please tell me how to put it back or tell me the command that starts it so I can put it in as a run command.

Thank you.

Assuming your using KDE right click on some blank space the taskbar thingo (actually called the 'kicker' panel I think) and select 'Add'->'Application Button' and then use the menu that pops-up to find the 'configure your computer' item (hint: its in System->Configuration I think). It should now appear but if its in the wrong place just right click on it and select move and move it to where you want by moving your mouse.

drakconf
That is the command to use in a terminal window.
The location is /usr/sbin/drakconf.

If it turns out it is not installed anymore try:
urpmi drakconf

Maybe try logging is a normal user instead. Mandrake intentionally makes the root KDE settings hard to use to discourage you from logging in as root, for many good reasons.
