As a new user of LM7 gloria, KDE4, I have a few simple (I hope) questions that if answered, would go a long ways towards furthering my enjoyment of using it. The first, but not the most important to me, is how do I make my multiple desktops appear on the panel? I noticed the other day that while the desktop was loading, 2desktop squares (the number I specified) really quickly disappeared beneath the volume, Klipper, wired network, padlock, box. I tried to move that box to gain access to them, but wasn't able to do it. So they are hidden. How do I get them to show in the panel?
Secondly, when I try to set a screensaver all I get is a black screen. My settings won't stick. My graphics info is: RV280 [Radeon 9250 PRO] ATI 128MB, with 1280X1024 res. I unticked the power savings as I don't have a laptop, and did forum searches, but couldn't find relevent advice. How do I get screensavers to kick in? I'm thinking this may be a kde4 bug, as the same thing happened on another distro.
Thirdly, It'd be nice if right-clicking would have more options like Move To dialog, or Save as Wallpaper, etc. like KDE 3.5X did.
Lastly, I wonder if there's a way to expand upon GUI features for system settings like backups, setting default applications. Are there add-on system utilities in the repository for Linux Mint/kde4?
This isn't intended to be criticism. I hope I don't offend LM aficianados or those more experienced & savy. I've downloaded & read the user guide and I'm enjoying using this so far. Thanks
