KDE 4 Folder View

Postby h33b on Sat Nov 22, 2008 11:01 pm

Hey everybody!

I installed Linux Mint KDE Edition today, and have fallen in love with it. It came with KDE 3.5 installed, but I installed KDE 4 right away because I like a lot of the things I have seen in the new KDE release. The one thing I have been troubled with however is that I cannot for the life of me figure out how to use Folder View. I click on the plasma icon on the top right and select "add widgets", but folder view is not an option there. I used synaptic to search for more plasmoids, and installed the package available, but even with that added, I still do not have folder view. I have googled folder view, how to install, how to enable, and I can find nothing!

So here I am, Mint Community, begging for your help! Please enlighten me, and show me how to use Folder View on my new distro.

Also, since you are already here, what are some of your favorite plasmoids and where can they be found?

Thank you all very much.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

your version of KDE 4 is just too buggy.

Mint 6 will be based on Kubuntu 8.10 with KDE 4 I bet. If you can't wait install Kubuntu 8.10. I used to have Ubuntu 8.04 installed with KDE 3 and when I upgraded online to 8.10 KDE 3 was replaced with KDE 4. I'm going to keep using Mint 5 until KDE 4 is finished.
