All my KDE4 desktops around here are in German (and they're on FreeBSD, but that shouldn't really matter) so the translations are not exact. Anyway, try this: - Right-click on your desktop - Choose "Settings for Default Workspace" - From the dialog, select "Folder View" for the layout > Question: how can I define this behavior as default?

After making said change in the GUI, I ran: find ~/.kde4 -mtime -60s to see what files have been changed within the last 60 seconds, and these two guys showed up: ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-desktoprc ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc Patrick -- If you'd like to send me a private message, make sure to remove the "_lists" part from my address.
