I don't have an arrow on my desktop link icons on either the 9.3 or
10.0 machines. Both are set up the same way (as far as I know). I have
used custom icons (e.g., for spreadsheets, text documents, etc.), but I
am still using the default SuSE icons in KDE control center >

I cannot find "Look and Feel." I have looked everywhere in the KDE

where it is located.
