KDE Probably the most often misunderstood element of KDE4 is Plasma, the extensive widget engine that replaces the normal desktop and the Kicker panel from KDE 3.x. The entire KDE4 desktop is built up out of Plasmoids (yet another term for desk accessory), including the panel and the desktop itself - and it is the latter that has been causing quite some confusion. Where are my desktop icons? Update: Aaron Seigo has published a screencast showing how the FolderView Plasmoid behaves as a normal desktop, and how to make it so.

"internationalization doesn't seem to be complete"

translation always lags behind development, since code needs to be written first before it can be translated =)

the translators can always use more hands and eyes, though. if you speak multiple languages, please help out! visit to find out how...
