KDE Questions
 
I've got Debain 3.0rl "Woody" up and running and just installed KDE, but seem to be having a lot of problems getting started.

I'm using Konqueror as my file manager. Is there a default KDE file manager also I can use?

Anytime I click on a KDE 'Help' button, it nothing happens. Somehow the help files did not get installed. Any ideas?

I made a 'Run Command' button on the KDE Panel and want to remove it. Can you tell me how? Right clicking on it doesn't do anything.

Some windows I open don't fit my screen, so I can't see the whole thing. For example, when I open the configuration wizard, I can't see the 'OK', 'Apply', and 'Cancel' buttons at the bottom of the wizard. The screen is not big enough for me to move the window up and see them, KDE Panel is still in the way. Any ideas?

Thanks for your help in advance and sorry if I posted too many questions in the same post.

Thanks,
rikkugil

1. Konqueror IS KDE's default file manager.

2. Not too sure, it might be pointing to the wrong location, or nothing is there at all, try right clicking on it and choosing preferences, notice where it's pointing to, and see if anything is there (using konqueror).

3. How did you create the button?

4. You can move KDE panel out of your way with the buttons on the side.

5. No problem

I made the KDE Panel Run Command button by right clicking on KDE Panel > Add > Button > Run Command. That may not be exactly the path I followed (I turned my computer off right now), but basically what I did.

Thanks for the other tips! I'll look into your idea on the 'help' issue, but help from others is always good also!

Thanks,

To remove the button, I believe if you right click in an area without buttons, there is a "remove" option, try following that and remove the "run command" you placed there. If that doesn't work, post back and I'll dig into some KDE files to see what I can drudge up.

Cool

Right clicking on a blank space doesn't give a remove option, only when you click on an existing button (but not when you right click on the Run Command button I created)...

It definitely does for me? Which version of KDE are you running? I just pulled it up to make sure, it definitely is there. I'll grab a screenie in a few to show ya.

:)

Cool

for the run command, see if it's in

/home/rikkugil/.kde/share/apps/kicker/

if it's in there then i would just delete it.

if not then sorry. i did some playing around and it's not in the config panel options that i seen.

you could also try, right clicking on a blank space, panel menu, then maybe you'll see the remove option. who know's?

cheers.

If you hold down the <ALT> key you should be able to drag the whole window/dialog around. Very handy for when things are just off the edge of the screen.

Does yours not look like that? My version is:
KDE Panel 1.1 on KDE 3.0.1

Cool

I have whatever KDE version comes with Woody. 2.2 I think. It looks like you've got a newer version than me. I can get the remove option on all the other buttons, but not the 'run command' one...

I still can't access any help info either. The help window pulled up in Konq. can't open any of the help files. It says the directories are not installed.

Thanks again for the help.
