recently, I’ve installed openSUSE with KDE as window manager. However, some icons seem too large, others okay. Furthermore, the window title bar, as well as much of the fonts, the start menu, and the task bar popup menu seem disproportionately large. I have already gone through all of YaST and the system settings, but I have only been able to reduce the window control buttons to an acceptable size, while the window title bar is still too high. Also, I have already removed all of the ~./cache folder and rebooted, but to no avail. Another thing I tried was setting the font dpi, but everything still looks weird. I am a bit confused by all of this, since there were no problems at all with openSUSE and KDE on my other laptop.
Here are some screenshots to illustrate the problem:
In the following picture, you can see that the title bar of the window is still too high. Before I changed the window control buttons to “tiny”, they took up all of the height, but the font size was still as small as you can see below. This is one of the things that I mean by “disproportionate”. Furthermore, you can see that the font in the task bar is too large.
In the next picture, you can see the start menu, which takes up the whole height and has a too high icon and font size. It takes up all of the screen, which hasn’t been the case in the installation on my other laptop. Furthermore, I have tried to add the KDE repositories to zypper, and afterwards the menu had an acceptable height, but the font and icon size was still too large, effectively hiding half of the content. After I deleted the ~/.cache folder, the appearance reverted to what you can see in the picture below.
Everything similarly with the task bar popup:
Since everything looks so out of place, I am asking myself if maybe there is just one option that I overlooked to make everything look normal?
I am on a dual monitor setup powered by a Lenovo Thinkpad, which has a monitor on its own (with a higher resolution and more dpi), but it is closed and disabled in the settings. Previously, I’ve tried to use the Thinkpad’s own monitor and just one extra monitor, but I gave up on that and obtained a second external monitor of the same model instead.
