Noob here. How do you place icons on the desktop after
installing a program? Gnome and openSuse 12.1 Installed Skype and
can run it but just want to get the icon on the desktop instead
of in the applications bar at the left. Thanks for the help.
Fire up the gnome-tweak-tool and in there you can select Nautilus
to control the desktop.
Could not find the gnome-tweak-tool. It is installed cause
I checked in install/remove software. So how do I proceed now?
Thanks. Bob
Can I give you any more info about what I did to follow
your instructions or anything else I can do to get icons on the
desktop. Once a program is installed, I can only find it in the
launcher at the left, and can't move the icons to the desktop.
Thanks. Bob
Start the tweak tool, and activate the slider;
