Laptop connected to external monitor

My laptop is connected to a KVM switch so I can use a real monitor, mouse, and keyboard.

I'm running Red Hat 9 on the laptop.

When I log in to the Gnome user interface the desktop image is centered in the middle of the glass just as I would expect. 1024x768, 70Hz refresh rate.

When I log in to the KDE user interface the desktop image appears to originate from the top left corner. A few pixels of the left side and the top get squeezed out of view.

In SuSE I used Sax to center the image but it mostly just crashed the computer.

Red Hat Gnome appears to have got it right but I can't find where in KDE to center the desktop in the CRT glass.

Can anyone provide assistance?
