    Default Taskbar won't adapt to 1024 x 768 resolution

    Hello there,
    OpenSUSE 11.4 (x86) + KDE 4.6.0 starts up by default in the 1280x1024 screen resolution. Although this is very annoying it can be overcome. But when I change to 1024x768 resolution the Taskbar doesn't adapt to this and the icons bottom right in the system tray can not be seen anymore (they disappear beyond the right side of the monitor so to say).

    I have installed the nvidia-gfx-kmp-default graphics driver for my old GeForce card. This problem also occurs with the default, but rubbish, Nouveau driver. In OpenSUSE 11.3 there was no problem at all with the same configuration.

    Has anyone an idea?

    Thanks in advance,
    Willem Franssen

    Hello there wfranssen. What program are you using to change the resolution? I ask because I am not sure if the nvidia-settings program is being used or if it was installed. What you describe might be where you have a small real resolution and a larger virtual resolution. If you move you mouse past the missing area might the visible screen also move that direction? In any event, the nvidia-settings program is the one to use over the KDE function when using the nVIDIA graphics driver. You can search in YaST / Software / Software Management for the program.

    Thank You,

    Hello jdmc daniel
    Of course I use the Nvidia X-Server settings to change the resolution. When I move the mouse past the missing area the visible screen does NOT move in the same direction. So I have no idea.
    Thanks, Willem Franssen

    Hello to everyone who's interested,
    I found the solution. Selected "Maximalize Taskbar" in Taskbar Panel Properties. Everything is fine now.
