I'm new to Linux world. Recently I've installed Kubuntu and I don't know how to move icons on the desktop. When I drag an icon from applications (start menu) and drop it, I can't move it anymore. For example, if I drop it in the middle of desktop, I can't drag it to left corner. Seems like icons are locked. What should I do?

  • What do you mean "can't move it anymore"? What happens when you try to move it? Did this used to work for you? – Seth Jun 16 '14 at 1:05

Right Click at the Desktop, Unlock Widgets. Or Lock Widgets, and then Unlock Widgets back again.

Then Pull not by the icon itself but by its little horizontal panel.

See at the picture:

  • Why oh why do you need to unlock this??? Just remove the lock / unlock function, it is totally useless and unecessary. – Markus Bawidamann Jun 16 at 19:00
