Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

you could try the kde4 unstable branch in factory (I'm assuming factory=11.0 at this point in time) http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...nSUSE_Factory/. 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).
I guess I missed his post date - since it was something I was searching to see if someone had noted before - which seemed to be the case.
"More Settings" is the Problem:
I did choose the "more settings" from the toolbar menu - unfortunately, that particular menu -> disappears the moment the mouse moves over it!!!. This is the issue that I am trying to resolve - not sure if anyone else has had that same problem.

The position of my toolbar is on the bottom - I used the exact same menu as you did - from what I've seen in the picture. After I click "More Settings..." as in your picture - if I move the mouse over the menu to say the "AutoHide" menu item (or any menu item there), the menu just disappears completely.
I guess I wasn't certain that this was a bug - or a misbehaviour that could easily be corrected.
If it is a bug that I've got - I am guessing that it might be - I am not exactly sure where this should be posted. I am writing about Fedora 24 - which is apparently past beta stage - so I'm not quite sure what you mean by beta code. I would guess, then, that this should be posted in the fedora forums? But it *is* a bug that affects KDE - so it may not be fedora specific - so would that still be warranted to go under fedora bugs?
I have been using Linux since 1993 - but am still a bit of a newbie in many areas as things change so fast - and I am usually a learn as-you-need-it person: many issues fall by the wayside for me, until I can't afford to put off learning about the specific situation I'm in.
The original post that started the thread was about a specific BETA release of SUSE. If you're having the same exact issue related to KDE on a platform that is no longer in BETA, then it seems that following this up on the KDE side of things would be the most direct path to understanding (or solution).

Maybe others are reporting similar issues? If not, you may be guided to reporting a bug for investigation.
