kde taskbar width


Hi. I'm not sure if this is a Slackware question or a KDE question, so I'll just ask it here since the change occured after I put Slackware 10.1 on.

When I was running Slackware 10.0, I my bottom panel (which mostly housed my taskbar) set to 78% width. That way, I could have XMMS in its own little space in the bottom-right portion of my screen. See screenshot here.

I downloaded Slackware 10.1 soon after and did a clean install (didn't upgrade because I wanted to have a better partition scheme this time around). Now, in KDE, if I set my bottom panel to 78% and try to put XMMS down there, it acts like the panel is taking up 100% of the screen (but is just transparent)... what I mean by that is when I drag XMMS down there, it "disappears" under where the panel would be if it was set to 100%. So it looks like it just vanishes under nothing since the panel doesn't stretch over that far... if any of that makes any sense.

Anyway, just wondering if anyone knows how I can remedy this. Thanks.

Now this is just an idea to try, but maybe if you turn off the background image on the taskabr in the KDE control center. See if that does anything.

I had to check "allow other windows to cover the panel" in the "hiding" tab. works now.
