Post by jimmer » Mon Sep 18, 2017 6:13 am

iguess there is something i have not understood about Plasma desktop, but i would simply like to be able to save files on in home>desktop, and for that to mean they show on my desktop.
any ideas?

you must enable the desktop
Rigth clic on desktop --> configure desktop--> at the first entry on top set "directories view" instead of "desktop"

Apply and ok

i think only for a clean desktop, i ever set the desktop on view directories, also on pclinuxos, kubuntu, opensuse etc ...

I do not remember exactly, but every distro can set the default desktop as it likes.

surely, for example, on PCLinuxOS is setting on "directories views" by default.
