I like to run KDE with openbox instead of kwin. System:
My problem is that all plasmoids are displayed off screen when I boot into KDE. The only way to fix it is by opening the cashew on the task bar and closing it - which seems to cause a refresh of the plasmoids locations.
My question is: is there a way to fix this? If not, is there a workaround to have the plasmoids refreshed upon login?
As good a reason as any :}
But, was wondering if there was some feature you craved which took you off the most beaten path.
It would probably still be informative to determine whether it’s likely a problem specific to Openbox. That could suggest whether you should follow up by searching KDE or Openbox support resources to get more eyeballs.
I have this problem as well. Fedora 14, KDE 4.5 and Openbox.
I currently run KDE/Openbox (no kwin), and have found a work-around.
When I log in, the menu and volume control windows open off screen, as for you. The fix is to click in the rightmost part of the panel, to open the panel setup controls.
Just open the panel control and close it at once. After this kmenu and volume control open where they should!
