windows too big on IceWM, fluxbox etc
I'm trying to switch from KDE/Gnome to one of the lightweight windows managers, to help my old 433Mhz Celeron keep up, however I'm getting the same problem as several other netizens , and have not been able to find a solution by general searches or off Linux specific sites.
My KDE desktop is set at 800x600, and when I re-login using fluxbox or iceWM everything looks fine, until I start an app (eg Konquerer). The app windows are huge! (fonts & widgets are ok) All I see is the middle of the window, no title bar or frames. I've tried moving the windows, minimising, maximising etc. Nothing I do is able to get the window(s) behaving nicely.
I know from searching that others are having the same problems, but I haven't found any solution yet.
If anyone knows whats going on, please let me know.
display (Geforce 4 Ti 4200) Nvidia drivers 800x600
fluxbox (from rpm) 0.9.8
IceWM - version rpm'd on mandrake disks
