Thread: Desktop Window Application Launcher(?) Stuck

    Post Desktop Window Application Launcher(?) Stuck

    Hello,

    my desktop window with the icons for application launcher is not anymore "re-sizeble" because of the bar at the bottom of the desktop. How do I get back to previous form with sizeble window?

    it may be obvious to you, but not to us....and, it probably will
    determine the answer, so please tell us

    what operating system and version you use

    what desktop environment and version you use

    did the move from having a sizable window come with what? a change in
    version of operating system or desktop environment? an update? a setting
    you changed?

    did you reset "the bar at the bottom" in someway? and it was then that
    this trouble began?

    can you take a screen shot and upload it to paste.opensuse.org and then
    give the URL back to us here, please

    if you use YaST > Security and Users > User and Group Management to
    temporally add a new TestUser, then log out and log back in as the
    TestUser, is the desktop window with the icons for application launcher
    re-sizeble again??

    perhaps you are unfamiliar with KDE4? if so maybe you will find some
    good hints here:

    http://doc.opensuse.org/documentatio....kdequick.html

    before you can make adjustments to the panel or the desktop you must
    first right click on the desktop and select "Unlock Widgets" and then go
    to the panel or widget you wish to adjust and click on its controls..

    be sure to "Lock Widgets" once finished adjusting, otherwise things can
    get pretty hectic..

    welcome! as you probably now see and understand the widgets can not be
    changed, moved, added or deleted as long as they are locked....which is
    why i mentioned when you are finished adjusting them *always* lock them
    down again....otherwise you can expect unintended deletions, movements
    etc etc etc!!
