Have not been able to save anything to the desktop and wasn't able to find an answer with a forum search.
This is the 2nd time I've tried Kaos on my 2009 iMac and other than not being able to effectively use the desktop area, this time Kaos seems more stable than when I tried it 5 months ago.
In other partitions I also run OS10, Lubuntu and Manjaro without any major issues, with Manjaro being my main Linux distro for awhile, so I'm somewhat familiar with Arch Linux, Pacman, etc.
What seems to be happening here in Kaos is that the desktop is configured like the panel and is looking for widgets, etc. When I save a text file to the desktop it turns it into a widget. On clicking, it opens a Notes sticky note with the text displayed.
Just want to be able to save text files, etc and have Kwrite or Kate, etc open on a double-click. Or have a spreadsheet file open the spreadsheet on clicking, same with image files, etc and I haven't been able to find a solution. Also, is there a way to display attached drives to the desktop. There's a lot of real estate there I need to make use of and can't. Thanks.
