I can't get to Desktop in Konsole. I can in KDE by starting at the root directory. The path is: Home->Home(tom)->tom . This displays the folders and files in "tom" . It contains the Desktop icon which opens up the Desktop.

If I try this in Konsole I get:



tom@emachine:~$ cd /Desktop
bash: cd: /Desktop: No such file or directory
tom@emachine:~$ ls

The word Desktop is displayed in blue. I don't know what that means. What do I need to do to get to the Desktop in Konsole?

Also, it seems strange that the path shown above has two Home directories. Is this normal?

Thank you for any help you can give me.
