SUSE 11.0 beta 2 X64 KDE 4 Can't Auto hide Toolbar / bottom panel

On the above system I can't AUTO HIDE (or even hide at all) the bottom toolbar / panel.

This is a really irritating bug as I am so used to having the panel auto hide so I can get to things like the NEXT / OK buttons on apps without having to move / re-size the screen.

Any fixes

I can even live temporarily without sound etc --these problems usuually get fixed sooner or later but this toolbar problem (small though it might seem) is a real SHOW STOPPER for me

anybody got a workaround yet (other than going back to 10.3).

you could try the kde4 unstable branch in factory (I'm assuming factory=11.0 at this point in time) But taskbar is a Plasma and that's still a work in progress. You could consider removing the Kde4 taskbar and using the taskbar from kde3 (which might auto hide), there's a post somewhere on how to do this (though in my 10.3 it's install'ed by default, I have 2 taskbars - both 3 and 4).

same error occurs for me in fedora 24

Hi guys,

Just wanted to confirm that I am seeing the exact same problem with the KDE plasma taskbar in fedora 24.

Not sure if anyone has seen any fixes for this situation, since this thread was posted.

I am hoping that someone will know why the panel/taskbar can't be autohidden.

I try going to the panel/taskbar controls, but when I try to click on one of the options on the "more settings..." submenu - the menu disappears.

you do realize that your kde5 plasma is no way near the same as the 8 year old EARLY kde4 testing

there IS!!!! a auto hide option in the toolbar menu
but it is not the same as in kde3.5 or 4

read the documentation on the MAJOR changes that have taken place in the last 8 years from the OP's original post

unlock widgets
from the toolbar menu select "more settings"
