Is there a way to keep KDE icons in one spot?


Every time I boot, KDE icons are in a different location on the desktop. Is there any way in the known universe to make them stay in one spot. There must be a way, I dont know why its a big secret.....

Is that a joke or is that in a new version of KDE?

Thats not a joke. Right click on the desktop -> Icons -> Lock In Place. Mine don't shift though, so I wonder why yours do.

That feature must be in KDE 3.5. I have never seen a check box like that when right clicking and choosing icons in any version of KDE.
My icons have always shifted all over for the last 3 or so version of KDE I have used. I mostly use Windowmaker but theres some things I need KDE for.

kde icons

I've got 3.5 and it has a selection of things you can do with icons: sort about five different ways, line up hoz. or vert., lock in place, and align to a grid.

It's very stable too, at least on Fedora Core 4, supports translucent everything etc., a nice windowing system they have made imho.

Icons

Hi.

Did you try locking icons in place? It's in the right mouse menu on desktop and there in a submenu. You will find it.

Hello, with versions of KDE older than 3.5 "align to grid" works just fine.
They will scramble as you click that checkbox, but you can reorder them to you liking (they will bounce to the closest grid position as you place them though) and they stay where they are.
