Is there any way i can add launcher icons directly to the desktop in Mint 14 KDE, rather than in a folder view? I've figured out I can create one in a folder view and then drag it onto the desktop, so is it possible to create them there in the first place?
Falling that, is it possible to make the folder view window transparent? I've installed the "Thin Air 2"theme which has made it lighter but I'd like to get rid altogether so as not to obstruct my desktop background. I tried the "Naked" theme which does this, but didn't like the other elements.
