The KDE Desktop

Figure 345 shows a basic Linux desktop running KDE on Yellow Dog Linux (this interface will look almost identical on every major Linux distribution except for Red Hat). Notice at the bottom task bar, icons are used to symbolize the major applications, which can be launched by clicking on appropriate icon. By default, KDE has four separate desktops available for the user, each of which can be accessed by clicking on any one of the four boxes, amazingly numbered one through four, in the right center of the task bar. The indicators of the running applications are located immediately to the right of the desktop boxes. Any of which can be made the active window by clicking on the appropriate indicator. One can lock the screen or log out using either one of the two buttons next to the application indicators. The clipboard, calendar come next and finally the clock. Files, bookmarks, and links to other items can be placed on the desktop for easy access.
