Can't drag / highlight or move icons on Desktop [SOLVED]

Post by Tursko » Wed Sep 06, 2017 6:07 pm

Just installed Mint KDE 17, and I can't move icons on the desktop or drag and highlight. It just doesn't work. Everything else on the OS works perfectly.

As far as moving them is concerned... Unlock widgets (right click a clear spot on your screen and it should be in the drop down. Then click and hold down on your desired icon.) If they are already unlocked your question is beyond me!

That worked.. you have to hold down on them.. so werid. Also I did the double click setting that the user above me mentioned and that works great also.
