You're gunna have to provide more info here, but of coarse you can. You may wanna look at the task-manager settings too.
If you really like taskbars, have you ever thought of adding something like Cairo/GLX Dock
. I've been using it w/KDE 4ever. I currently use Cairo-Dock 3.1.2-2 w/KDE 4.10.0-1 in Mageia Cauldron X86_64. TBH, I couldn't imagine KDE w/o it. I created a custom glx dock I keep at the top of my screen to compliment my heavily modified plasma panel at the bottom.
