Description of problem:
File and directories in the root folder appear on the desktop. In addition, the
trash icon has disappeared
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Clear the .kde directory
2. Log in to a KDE session
The desktop has icons for files and folders from the root directory.
When logging on after upgrading to -12 (from -6?), the icon set had changed (was
bluecurve) to to what I guess is the default KDE set overriding the original
kde-settings needs the xdg-user-dirs package in order to set the KDE
enviroment (Path for Desktop, in this case). it seems this package is not
installed on your machine. You should please install xdg-user-dirs package
and restart your KDE session again, it should work. The bug has been already
fixed in current kde-settings. Thanks for your report.
