Hide your folders in KDE

Post date: November 11, 2007, 05:11 Category: Desktop Views: 3055 Comments
Tutorial quote: Want to keep your MP3s away from your boss’ or big brother’s view? Of course, in Linux anything that starts with a period is “suppose” to be hidden; but all we have to do is type “ls -A” or turn on the viewing of hidden files in KDE…not too hard. Basically what we can do is set a transparent PNG as our folder icon, and rename our folder with a ” “(space). This will actually keep the previous name of the folder.Also we will keep anyone out of the folder that doesn’t know Linux commands, and doesn’t know exactly where we have placed the icon. This works GREAT for the desktop.

Tutorial quote: Ever working in KDE or Gnome, your application freezes and even the close button doesn’t work? Then it is time to pull out the “kill” command.
