TaskBar Question...


Before using SUSE 9.1 i use to have SUSE 8.1 (Live evaluation CD)..and i cant help notice something.....you see on SUSE 8 the taskbar..... the sound button and part of the taskbar was framed..... look at the picture..


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...es/Taskbar.jpg

See what i mean with framed?? like the clock is framed and stuff..well the taskbar and the area of the sound is too...

i was trying to do that with SUSE 9.1 but i cant seem to do it..the only frame thing i can get is the clock...how i make my taskbar look like in 8.1??



hope ppl know what i mean...

Hmm, I do see what you mean, did you right-click on the clock and see if the properties dialog has a setting for that?

I'm not currently running KDE, I'm beta-testing the Novell Linux Desktop in GNOME mode, but I remember a setting in the KDE Control-thing that had to do with how items were displayed in the taskbar etc, something about "flat" or "sunken" mode. You _did_ investigate thoroughly the settings dialogs in Control-thing before posting.... Right?

If you can't find it still, I'll switch over to KDE and see what I can do in the next couple of days.

assuming you mean the applet handles(the bars w/arrows at the tips),then:configure panel(layout button)>appearance>advanced options.make sure the "visible" button is activated.

It is not th applet handlers.. and i did investigate right...i dont see no sunken or flapt options..also i dont see no "frame" option for the taskbar....


For those who dont understand, i want my taskbar to look "framed" what do i mean with fram??

look at the picture...look at the clock..you see the clock has lines around?? its "framed" in SUSE 8.1 you can do that ont he "sound button" area and part of the task bar.... cant figure how on 9.1

Like RossB says there use to be a check box in the Controll Center that would turn it on and off, I looked around for it but have not found it which means it may not exist anymore. Your best option at this point may be to search KDE-Look and see if there is a theme that has the look you want.
