Hang on....something not quite right here....you don't know how to 
switch desktops using the mouse like you can in KDE? Me thinks there is 
some definitional problem here....

On the bottom panel, right hand, there are at least 4 (by default) boxes 
- each is a desktop. And the icon at the end of that panel is the 
Recycling Bin.

Or are we into some other 'thing' here? :-)


Don't resent getting old - a great many are denied the privelege.
