taskbar buttons
« on: April 01, 2010, 09:50:32 am »
I'm trying out VL6 SOHO KDE-Classic. The applications on the taskbar are all clustered to the right of the taskbar and squeezed. It's like the taskbar is only taking up a small portion of the "taskbar". Anyone know how to fix this?

To change the settings, first right-click the panel and select "Unlock", if needs be.
Next, right-click > Configure panel > Appearance > Advanced Options (button) > Applet handles > Visible > OK > OK
Now you should see a little triangle on the left side of the taskbar. Click it and select "Move".
Move it as far left as you can without displacing other items.

Keep in mind, everything you see in that "tool bar" is a widget of some kind. So if you accidently whack something, just add the widget back onto the bar and place it where you want it. Although placement can be somewhat....... aggravating.
