large kde


i have just installed suse 9.1, running kde 3.2. everything in kde is huge, like the resolution is 800x600... the resolution is actually set to 1280x1024.

i have reduced the font sizes thru the control panel, but am at a loss on how to reduce the width of titlebars etc...

You may have a 800x600 resolution with a 1024x786 virtual screen. Check your /etc/X11/XF86config-4 file.

Also, try cycling through the display resolutions by pressing CTL-ALT-KeypadPlus or CTL-ALT-KeypadMinus.

Also, check in the KDE configuration. For example, under look-n-feel, what is the size of the icons for toolbars.
