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.

RE[3]: what

Member since:

What surprises me is that someone thought it necessary to explain three times (with video and pictures) the operation of a feature copied from the most common operating system of all time.

The reason for this is that some, among others the most vocal "critics", have been either unable to or not villing to understand the developers when they say "in addition to the new way to do the desktop, we also support the old legacy way of doing it".

Why people need to get it explained tree times is surprising to me, and for the developers too.
