Re: Undesired maximization of window size (KDE).

Kickoff > System Settings > Workspace Behaviour > Screen Edges Do you have 'Maximise windows by dragging them to the top of the screen' ticked? If so, deselect it. That was it. Thank you. I added the [Solved] annotation. Feel a bit silly now, though. Dunno why that particular penny didn't drop for ...

Undesired maximization of window size (KDE). [Solved]

OK, so I've been playing with KDE and trying to configure all the system settings and become familiar with what does what. But there's 1 annoying "feature"(?) I failed to find a configuration option to override... I place an open window (terminal, firefox, or whatever) so that it's up as far as poss...

Re: Which pdf reader on Sabayon 11 (Xfce)? And where is foxi

If you want to install kde alongside xcfe that's simple! #equo install kdebase-meta After that finishes, at login you should be able to choose kde or xcfe. OK, I 've now installed KDE as you suggested and played around with it for a few hours. So far, I'm getting a vaguely better feeling than I did...

Re: Which pdf reader on Sabayon 11 (Xfce)? And where is foxi

Don't you have epdfview installed in SL 11 Xfce? It's on the LiveDVD and was installed to the HDD of the two laptops on which I'm running SL Xfce. app-text/epdfview-0.1.8-r1 No. There's no epdfview in my default PATH. I didn't do anything unusual during the installation -- I just let the installer ...

Re: Which pdf reader on Sabayon 11 (Xfce)? And where is foxi

Thanks for the replies, everyone. On the XFCE site they recommend xpdf. I didn't find xpdf in Rigo. TBH, I don't fully understand the rigo/entropy/portage subtleties. And yes, I did read the sticky thread about it. I got the impression that I should be using Rigo and ignoring the rest. Is that impre...

Window non-restoration. How to query bugzilla effectively?

In Sabayon 11, Xfce environment, I start several xterm windows, then resize and place them where I want them. Then I logout. Upon login, I find the xterm windows are all recreated with correct size, but 1 or 2 are placed incorrectly. I'm wondering whether this is a bug, or something I've done wrong....
