taskbar changed during upgrade or theme


Unfortunately this happened a while back and i have not thought to ask so the details might be a bit vague.

Mandriva 10.2
KDE 3.3

I used to have it so that my KDE taskbar icons would enlarge when hovered over, but now, when I hover over the icons I get a massive tooltip (at least an inch tall) with the icon in it an everything.

Not the end of the world, just wondering if this might be a theme thing or something.

PS

I do not recal installing any custom themes, but if it came with Mandriva, I might have had it.

Vague enough for ya?

I suspect Mandriva may have silently and automatically upgraded your version of KDE (IIRC the taskbar tooltip feature you describe was introduced in KDE 3.5.x)

Have a look in the KDE Control Centre and see what version you now have!

There may be other fixes around, but read this right through, the fix is in the end.

Hope this works for you
