I have OpenSUSE 11.0 installed on Asus Z99le notebook with KDE3.5.9-65.2 as my working environment.
Right now I’m trying to set up an account using IceWM, and have some troubles with it.
Native screen resolution for my laptop is 1280x800. When X starts, it sets normal resolution, but iceWM for some reason uses only 1024x768 in the top left corner of it. It looks quite odd: the whole screen area is actually usable, but iceWM toolbar is not at the bottom of the screen, but floating a little higher, and maximized windows leaving a free space at the bottom and right edges of the screen.
Here is what I have done:
- Installed latest available icewm, icewm-default and iceWMCP using YaST2
- Created new user account named “al”
cp /home/al/.xinitrc.template /home/al/.xinitrc
- in the .xinitrc substituted the line
at this point when iceWM starts, it looks like I have described.
- I have compiled iceWM 1.2.37 from sources, but it changed nothing.
I have tried to find something similar with google, but either I have used wrong keywords, or it’s not the common problem.
I have no idea what is the reason for this behavior. Any help is appreciated.
