Question KDE: How to suppress panel scroll buttons


Hi *,

I've got a question concerning KDE.
On the panel (better: on the task bar area of the panel) some "scroll buttons/arrows" appear as soon as I open an application, or an application moves to the "systray?".
With these buttons I can move the whole panel left/right, but I don't want that! There's still enough space on the task bar! It's ok (maybe) if they appear when the task bar is full, but it isn't...
I already found out, that the appearance of the buttons is related to the size (width [i've my panel vertical on the left side]) of the panel, but I've no idea how to stop these buttons from appearing!

Anyone knows how to tell KDE or the panel to stop this.

Thanks and regards

Dirk

Taskbar doesn't like being vertical.

Also the panel might be misinterpreting the size of The Taksbar, So Expand as Required may not be working properly. Switch Expand as required off, and size the panel manually.

You could also try in The Panel configuration Apperance->Advanced Options... and clicking Allow Drag 'n' Drop Resizing of Panels. Though this might not help.
