Description Paul Black 2007-05-22 03:21:13 EDT
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):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Clear the .kde directory
2. Log in to a KDE session

Actual results:
The desktop has icons for files and folders from the root directory.

Expected results:
No icons!

Additional info:
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
profile settings.

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.
