KDE 4: Hiding of Task Bar is now Part of openSUSE 11.1

October 24th, 2008 by

When I blogged a couple of weeks ago about KDE3 and KDE4, I mentioned that hiding of the task bar is the number one missing feature. Yesterday I talked with Will Stephenson – he was hacking on the sofa in the hallway – and he showed me some new stuff including this one which is now in openSUSE 11.1 Beta3.

To enable it, do the following:

  • Unlock the widgets (if yours are locked) with a right click on the desktop and selection “Unlock Widgets” in the menu.
  • Configure the taskbar with clicking on the cashew at its left end:
  • Now click on “More Settings”:
  • And then choose whether you want it changed to “Auto hide” or “Windows can cover”:

Thanks for implementing and backporting this!

  1. “Configure the taskbar with clicking on the cashew at its left end” -> You mean “its right end”. :-)

    You’re right – I meant the other left ;)
