Mint 5 KDE Multiple Desktop Question

Postby DataMan on Sun Dec 07, 2008 7:22 am

Recently installed the version 5 KDE of Mint. In the desktops setup I have it set to 6 desktops. Haven't been able to decipher how to switch desktops as I don't see any links in the bottom toolbar to the individual desktops. Would appreciate it if someone would point me in the correct direction.

Thanks,

The easiest way would be to add the window switcher applet to the panel. Right click on the panel (empty spot) select "Add Applet to Panel", and then select it.

Thanks, that did it. A bit surprised that it isn't the default state ... but I guess that's all part of the re-familiarization process with Mint and the current KDE :) .

It is already in the panel in a "vanilla" KDE desktop. Boo (the Mint KDE maintainer) customizes the Mint KDE desktop before release, and just didn't leave it there.
