Question My Computer Icon doesn't work SUSE 10 KDE


Hey,

Windows has been driving me mad recently, so i've finally installed SUSE 10. (The OpenSuse.org free version)

Machine spec: Dell Optiplex Gx270 (P4 2.66, 512ram 110gb hd)

I installed both Gnome and KDE so i can mess about with each and get a feel for it.

Gnome works fine.
The problem is when I use KDE the 'My Computer' icon on the desktop won't open. (but right click properties on it works)

If i click on the icon, nothing. But when i use Gnome it shows my drives how i hoped.

The only other thing i can note is i installed Gnome first, then went back and did an upgrade to get KDE, Apache, PHP and MySql.

Can anyone advise on a fix or should I run through the full install again?

Any help much appreciated.

You can install Gnome and KDE in parallel.
Before login in, you can choose between Gnome and KDE.

Systemupdate is done via Yast2->Onlineupdate. Both Gnome and KDE patches are supplied.

OK.
Just check by right-click on the "my computer"-icon the settings of that icon. I think the icon does not start a application. It should be konqueror-filebrowser.
