    Wink Any way to get KDE "start bar" to extend all the way across screen?

    Hello,

    I am having a problem getting the KDE start bar to extend the full length of my monitors screen. Kinda frustrating as the winodws bulk up in a very tiny space.

    right click on the bar, go to panel options, then panel setting, you should be able to make it any size you want and move it all around, you can also make it taller so it will have layers rather than just one row.

    I am not sure if the above response helped, but you can follow his instructions: Right click the bar -> Panel Options -> Panel Settings. In the large popup menu bar, click More Settings -> Maximize Panel.
    This will extend your bar across the entirety of your screen.

    If you're interested in changing the actual screen resolution... You can edit the file:
    /usr/share/xresprobe/xorg.conf

    I usually use nano:
    sudo nano /usr/share/xresprobe/xorg.conf

    Typically the default is set to: 1024×768
    So scroll down until you see something similar to:

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Default Screen"
    Device "Generic Device"
    Monitor "Generic Monitor"
    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 1
    Modes "1024x768"
    EndSubSection

    1024×768
    Just change the 1024x768 to the resolution you desire.

    well what happened was i ended up removing the OEM "backtrack bar" and added a new "panel" which ended up giving me a complete new KDE bar (without the bt customizations you originally get) that extended all the way across the screen.

    its good enough but woulda been nice if the original bar simply extended the entire width of the screen.
