KDE and internet question.


I just installed Mandrake 9.0, and am having some problems with the KDE desktop when I log in as a user.

As a user, I can't make any icons on my desktop. It says I don't have permission. So I logged on as root and clicked "manage your users," but got the error message: "(Userdrake) cannot lock user lib, file: /etc/ptmp or /etc/gtmp exist"
What does this mean and how can I fix it?


Internet ?:
I connect to the internet through a lan card and an ADSL router modem. Is there anyway to configure Mandrake to auto detect a lan connection? Everytime I want to use the internet, I have to relogon as root then connect manually by going mandrake control center > network & internet > connection
> connect

Thanks for your help

forgot something

The GNOME desktop works fine. I can pretty much do whatever I want with out any objections, if I'm logged on as a user.
