    sorry, i do not understand the question..

    since we have members here from ALL over the world, i suggest you post
    again in your native language, both in the subject and body of the
    posting...maybe a guru from right around the corner will help you..

    also, you might seek a contact through http://www.linux.org/groups/

    but, before you go let me tell you that KDE4 is EXPERIMENTAL software
    and is NOT ready for use by folks new to Linux...so, i would STRONGLY
    suggest the FIRST thing you should to is either use YaST to install
    KDE3.x.x OR just reinstall SuSE and this time watch and do NOT install
    KDE4.x.

    thanks for trying openSuSE/Linux, good luck, and keep smiling!

    > PS: DenverD i'm not happy about what you said..


    i AM sorry...i was TRYING to be helpful....i live in a foreign country
    and am required to sometime write in Danish...i KNOW how very difficult
    it is sometimes to express myself the way i want....it takes me so must
    longer...and, then sometimes the Danes STILL do not understand what i
    meant to say...



    > i suggest you
    > post again in your native language... im sorry English is my native
    > language.


    sorry you misunderstood my intention....i honestly didn't understand
    your question but WANTED you to get the help you need and deserve...i
    though it MIGHT be helpful to you if your need was clearly understood..

    i KNOW how difficult it is to operate in a second language...i face that
    EVERY day, and i know it is not fun...

    det var ikke min meaning til at give dig problemer...undskyld!!
    [show that to any Dane and they might say my Danish is WAY WAY below
    third grade level]

    >it like you want everyone to know a college or 12th grade
    > level of English.


    NO, i just wanted you to get the help you need...it was in no way my
    intention to cause you any problem whatsoever...


    >the only thing i did like was the link about linux
    > group.


    why would i try to help you with that, if i had just been so
    intentionally cruel as to belittle you for less than college english...

    i cannot help you further, sorry...i hope someone comes along that can!!

    well, you might _TRY_ going to YaST > Hardware > Graphics Card and Monitor

    and on the Display tab, make sure it show the correct name for your
    Graphics card AND monitor...

    CAUTION: on mine it shows an "Options" button next to the card
    name...and i do not understand ANYTHING in that part of it and suggest
    you leave it ALONE....also..

    but MAKE sure the Resolution (in the Properties block) is set to what
    YOUR monitor needs....do you know what that is? and i've my color set to
    16 bit, because my card is not so strong...

    then, i believe when you click on Ok, at the bottom another little
    window will pop up telling you that you need to Test and Save your
    settings...when you click on Test i think maybe you will see the screen
    where you earlier moved your display OFF to the side....so now you can
    MOVE your display to be centered again....it is a little complicated but
    i'm sure you can do it....hopefully...REMEMBER, if you get into trouble
    the worst that can happen is you have to press, all at the same time
    Ctrl+Alt+Backspace and you will be right back where you started (like it
    is now)

    and, then you can try again...

    good luck, and AGAIN i say i am sorry if i offended you with my
    suggestion you post in a language easier for you...sorrry!

    easiest is to logout and shutdown/restart..
    when you restart all should be great!

    be sure and come back if that does not happen..

    happy to hear you got your monitor the way you need it...

    i've seen several people here having big troubles from firefox with SuSE
    11.0....i guess you have firefoxTHREE, you might be better off using
    konqueror or load Opera (i think you can do that easily in YaST)..

    i have Opera here but prefer Firefox 2.0.0 which is quite stable here on
    SuSE 10.3

    have fun!
