    Talking How can one place icons inside Kiba-dock or any other dock-bar?

    I found out there is some Kidedock bar I could use, but it's empty. How to place some shortcuts there? I tried to launch Icon Manager but it won't open.

    Can it be done manually by placing icons myself in some directory and if so, where and how?

    Maybe I should install other bar, but even when I know other enhancements, I don't have any experience with those.

    Try right-clicking the menu bar; there should be some useful options, and I know I've been able to make mine look like I wanted. Persistence is the key! Keep asking if you don't get it, and good luck!

    It wont work. My desktop is being blocked.

    When I copy somethin from the bluetooth-aplet from my cell phone onto desktop with Ctrl+V it changes to "unblocked desktop".

    And no one knows here why Knoppix does such things. I asked here in some topic too.

    Heh. ;(

    Bad distro, bad distro.

    And then I suggest you do yourself and most of us others the favor to stay away from it. Because it does not seem that you have that much knowledge about Unix, I would also urge you to abstain from presenting your user experience as "proof" of anything Knoppix-wise.

    I have been using Linux for 16 years, running all major and some minor distributions, and relative to the resources put into it, 6.2.1 is by far the best Linux distro I have ever used. I have always tried to get away with learning as little about Unix as possible, but that minimum isn't always very minimal
    I think that sticking to three main principles is making life easier for me. With Knoppix, as with any Linux/Unix distro:
    1. Using it the way it is intended.
    2. Carefully map bugs and find workarounds. (Yes, all operating systems releases have more or less erious bugs.)
    3. Never expect it to be easy to make customizations to a Unix system. It may sometimes turn out to be very easy, but, in my experience, you never really know.
