Hi. I made a new text file on the desktop, and was suprised to find i needed to supply a password before i could open it to type anything Also the text file was duplicated across all 6 desktops. I seem to recall (probably wrong though), that each desktop would be seperate with the 4.6 update. Is this normal?
Creating a new file as user on the desktop does not require a password upon opening. Files on the desktop are in the virtual desktop 7 which is common to all 6 FM-desktops and for this reason such a file appears on all 6 FM-desktops. If you want to have a file only on one given FM-desktop then you should place this file inside an existing container. For example, assume your file is a text document, select the FM-desktop 2 (Office) and drag/drop the file from the desktop into the container Office
, then choose Move Here
and your new file will be in this container and no longer on all 6 FM-desktops. Equally you can move launchers or files outside any container. Each container is just a directory, for example the Office container on desktop 2 is located at ~/.kde4/vdt/2/2a/
and files/images or whatever you put in this directory will appear in this container on the desktop. Similar for all other containers available under ~/.kde4/vdt/
. But be careful what you change in there, these directories are hidden for a reason
hope this helps,
