No USB drive icon on the desktop


When I plug in a USB drive, I don't get an icon on my desktop to quickly unmount. I think this is a KDE setting more than a slackware thing.

Thanks in advance,
Eric

(I don't have a English version, so I can't tell you the menus 100% correct, but I will give it a try

Go to your desktop settings (Right click on the background). On the icons on the right there should be section called "behavior" (second from the top), now there should be a tab on the top called "device Icon" or something like that (to the right). In that tab you can activate/deactivate device icons on your desktop
