    Default kde panel widgets too wide and cannot be resized?

    Hi,

    I just applied the latest patches to suse 11.1.

    Now, some of the panel widgets are much too
    wide. It appears that the system tray is
    on top of the clock widget, which takes up
    more than half of the panel now.

    I have tried using the cashew-controls
    to move and resize the clock and the system
    tray, but it does not work.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    David

    In a terminal:

    Code:
    kquitapp plasma && rm ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma* && plasma &

    Thanks, I tried it.

    I got the following message, and it did
    not change the size of the clock:

    QLayout: Attempting to add QLayout "" to Plasma:ialog "", which already has a layout
    X Error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) 3
    Major opcode: 18 (X_ChangeProperty)
    Resource id: 0x1800088
    plasma(4786)/libplasma Plasma:anelSvgPrivate::generateBackground: Invalid panel size QSizeF(-1, -1)

    What should I try next?

    Something else I noticed. When I minimize
    a window, the minimized application does
    not show up in the panel. Does this symptom
    help narrow down the problem?

    It seems that you don't have the task manager in the panel.
    you can add the task manager widget in the panel to show the open applications when minimized or maximized.

    I think the problem may be from an old .kde
    directory. I removed the .kde and .kde4
    directories and had the system re-create
    them when I logged-in again. It is working
    now.

    Thanks!

    Only the .kde4 would need to be removed. But this is a well known fix for big kde4 desktop issues.
