Thread: How can I resize taskbar?

    Question How can I resize taskbar?

    I use OpenSuSe 11.2 with KDE 4 desktop.
    After plugging external monitor to my MSI Wind U100 notebook and then unplugging it I have an effect shown on a picture below.
    This effect did not disappear after reboot.
    The taskbar is now 800px wide (and it must be 1024px) because resolution of the monitor was 800x600px.

    How can I resize taskbar? Excuse me if i name it incorrectly. It's my first experience with SuSe (and Linux too) and I name taskbar because it was named so in Windows.

    Right click the desktop
    Unlock widgets

    Now on the clock end of the taskbar notice a little cashew shaped icon
    Click it and the adjust controls will show

    I have a newbie question to add, if I have been playing with my panels and plasma desktop, I have accidentally removed the taskbar (letting me choose which currently running application I am after) and also I have lost the virtual desktop button with the tiny icons of the different desktops (1-4). At the moment, if i minimise an application, its gone which can be frustrating. Can anyone please help how to get either of these back? I've checked add widgets, and these two options are not on there anywhere,

    am i doing something stupidly wrong?

    Probably

    Right click the Desktop Unlock widgets
    Far right corner of the Panel click the cashew
    When the panel expands, select add widget
    add task manager
    you may also need to move the new task manager

    then lock the widgets from the right click desktop

    I am pretty new to Linux and and have about 4 days of experience with Suse.

    This may not be the right place but I couldn't figure out how to start a thread or find one with my issue and this one seemed the closest.

    I am wondering if there is a way to have a seperate taskbar for each virtual desktop?
    I am running Suse 11.2

    Thanks

    You can configure different Desktops with different activities. From the cashew top right.
