How to get rid of the Desktop Folder?

Well, I don't like the Desktop Folder. How can I get rid of it and have ALL my Desktop to put my icons, just like in KDE 3 series?
I know this is possible (see distros like sidux), but I don't know how to do it.
Thanks in advance.

Re: CNR Upgrade

Can you explain this 'download window of Firefox'? I'm not sure what you mean. The little box that Firefox displays when you click on a link to download something. In the box, you have the options: Open with: and Save Also, see your "Note:" Did you mean CNR instead of CNT? Sorry, yes. CNT is a TV N...

Re: CNR Upgrade

When I run Freespire 1.0 some time ago, CNR was my package manager. It's wonderful, has a lot more packages than Debian (37.000+), it's easy, it's free.
It'd be a nice addition to Mint, though I think that Mint's Software Portal becomes redundant. I'll try it on Mint tomorrow.

Well, if you do it in synaptic, it should also be applied in mintUpdate. Doesn't that work? Unfortunately not. PS: It would make a nice addition in the preferences.. there's something similar planned at the moment, the possibility to define your own levels for the packages you want, so I suppose yo...

mintUpdate: freezing a package?

How do I freeze a package with MintUpdatel? Audacity 1.3.3 didn't work for me, so I installed version 1.2.6. Now, everytime I boot, mintUpdate tries to update Audacity to 1.3.3 and this is annoying. I know how to do it with Synaptic (Packages > Hold version) but can't find the option in MintUpdate. ...

Great, Husse, thanks. I think you're right about this M$ thing. It's a remarkable news, and possibly several bricks less on their "unbreakable" wall.

Are you sure?
Maybe my mistake:

Step 2.5: cd ..
Step 3: sudo chown /home/your_user_name .ICEauthority

I had this problem in the past and this always worked for me. Maybe it's ICEAuthority, with a capital A after ICE, I can't check now, I'm on Windows (!!!!!).

Que são "veje" e "seje" ?

Quanto a distros, cada um usa a que for melhor para ele. Seja feliz com seu BigLinux, pois nós somos felizes com o Mint (aliás, vc. está no fórum errado).
