[Techtalk] Mystery of the Lost Icons

I am running SuSE 8.2 KDE 3.1.1.

I upgraded from 8.1 and that went very well.

I have a TV Card and DVD/CD and a CDRW. These all kept their configs and the 
desktop icons for DVD CDRecorder and TV Card were all happily on my desktop 
in the new 8.2 look and feel. These icons are not the ones can config from 
the KDE system they are ones that appear automatically in the desktop from 
hardware probe on boot up. KDE system does not have cdrecorder or dvd.

Subsequent to installing and configing Ogle from tarball and Mplayer from rpms 
I have lost my dvd cdrecorder and tvcard desktop icons. I have tried deleting 
all configs for tv card and cdrw and dvd/cd and rm the drivers from 
../hardware/unique-keys and re-booting hoping they would reappear but to no 

There is no ref to any Bug or known issue with this in the SuSE kdb.

I have no problem mounting cdrw and dvd nor running apps suing the tv card, 
mplayer and ogle both run well. It is just a desktop Xesthetic thing and a 
nagging mystery I would like to solve in case it is a symptom of a darker 

Any help greatly appreciated.
