Unhappy Mandriva Free 2007 Toolbar problem (Maximize, Minimize, and other basic functions)


Hi, I have recentley installed mandriva, but I have some problems with it. The first one is that I have no toolbar for each window, so I can't Move, Minimize, Maximize. If I could use the shortcuts to these functions, I would, but they don't work either, the 3D Cube which I was drooling at didn't work either. I'm terribly sorry if this is too much to ask and I'm noob, but mind if someone can help me? I

Mandriva defaults to the KDE desktop. If you are using KDE, you can move windows by dragging then by the title bar. There should be three window control buttons in the top right corner to Minimize to task bar, Minimize/maximize toggle, and close. Finally, if you ALT-Click (secondary mouse button) the title bar you should get a pop up window function menu.

If you use any other desktop, I can not be sure the controls are the same.

HTH,

HTH,
Do you mind if you can give me a link to where to download KDE for Mandriva? Sorry if I'm troubling :S. Oh nvm lol, I found it, thanks for all the help XD.

Updated: Awww man, lolz, I installed that version of Mandriva, the KDE desktop, it still doesn't have it...
