When I am in Gnome, I always have a "Home" icon and a "My Computer" icon on the desktop (Fedora Core 6). But when I log out of Gnome and log into KDE, I don't have either. The only way for me to access my directory tree is by clicking on one of my USB hard drive icons on the desktop, where Konqueror will open, and the directory tree will be in the left pane. I would rather access my directory tree directly from the "Home" icon or either the "My Computer" icon instead.
Is there a way for me to get a "Home" icon and/or a "My Computer" icon to show up in KDE like they do in Gnome?
Incidently, these two items do not show up anywhere in the start menu nor do they show up on the task bar. They are completely missing altogether.
I am not sure what version of KDE I have right now but it is fairly recent.
I don't have a "My Computer" icon either, but I've got a "System" icon which may be what your looking for. If I remember correctly new profiles in Gnome get "My Computer" but KDE get "System"
I can't be bothered logging in and out to check for you
Right-click on the desktop and say "Create new > Link to location (URL)".
I tried using that Kmenu editor but the missing programs didn't seem to show up there either. I probably need to apply some updates to Fedora/KDE. Usually that fixes my problems but I hesitate to do so because I only have a dial up connection and it can take days. I have already switched to Gnome anyway and tweaked it to behave like KDE.
