Re: [K12OSN] Removing the "Floppy" desktop icon



Hello Petre,

I finally was able to get to your last suggestion and it worked. No more 
floppy icon. :)

You may want to add that to the Wiki.

Thanks for the tip.

I'm almost finished with the KDE Kiosk. I just need to auto logon and set a 
simple text scroller screen saver and I think I'm done.
