    Default Desktop shifted on KDE

    Hi
    I just installed Opensuse 10.3 with KDE and have a problem with my desktop.
    The tool bar at the bottom of the screen starts exactly at the left of the screen and goes to the right, but everything above has only a cut off width (windows, the desktop background) because at the right edge of the screen is a ~10 cm width grey bar.
    Can anyone tell me what happened and how I make the desktop covering the whole screen again?

    I think you are using KDE 4.0.x. In the right upper corner you'll find a little yellow button, bubble, whatever. Click on it and select Zoom In.
    Hope that helps.
    Good luck.

    I can't see such a bubble. I made a screenshot with this bar at the right, hopes that helps:

    It could be an External Taskbar.If you right click the gray bar do you get an options menu? I think you will see a remove Taskbar option.

    No, there are no right (or left) click options.

    Open a console and type these commands:

    xrandr -q
    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    You can cut and paste the output, and post here. That may be helpful.

    There is another command called xwininfo that can provide X window sizes. Type

    xwininfo

    in console, then click on the desktop area. It will report various attributes including desktop size in pixels which can then be compared to current resolution.

    I have the same issue under XFCE, with Opensuse 11.1 (no pb with opensuse 11.0)
    Is someone have an idea to fix it ?

    Thanks for your help

    Everything looks ok there (from resolution and pixel perspective). If running KDE3, have a look at this thread. Not sure what else to offer here.
