Thank you for the quick reply.

The more I try tweaking my desktop, the more confusing this gets. I have opensuse 11.2 on a VM w/kde 4.3.5. The VM did not have the problem, so I didn't upgrade to kde 4.4. On my main machine, I also have 11.2 w/kde 4.3.5, but I had the problem. I started comparing things to narrow it down. I tried many things, including turning off effects (which the VM doesn't have). When I increased the Height of the Taskbar/Panel (it seems like the default is 35px), I couldn't get Oxywin to fail, at all, even when I put the Height back. Now that things seemed settled on the desktop, I think I'll leave everything alone. Thank you so much. Nice theme!

Oxywin

I liked the Oxywin theme, but I had problems.

I tried both the Oxywin and Oxywin without background pattern (my preference).

I have the Digital Clock configured to show date, day of week, and year. I have it on the right-hand side, next to the system tray.

When I apply the Oxywin Desktop Theme, the items on the Taskbar/panel continually redraw. I had to reapply the Oxygen Theme.

I removed the Digital Clock and applied the Oxywin Desktop Theme and it was okay. I re-added the Digital Clock with the defaults and it was okay. The problem started when I added all 3, Date, Day of Week, and Year. The Oxywin Theme is okay with 2 of them, but not 3.
Some sort of sizing/padding problem? I also had this problem with the Glassified theme.

Kate Tab Bar Extension

Text Editors by accolon 31 comments

1. The Tab Bar Extension that was originally installed with Kate had a down arrow on the right-hand side that would expand and show all documents that were open. This was a nice feature because you could go directly to a file.

This Tab Bar Extension is missing that feature. It has two arrows on the right-hand side that scroll the tabs left and right. When you have many files open, clicking a drop-down and selecting from a list is very fast, verses scrolling through the tabs.

2. This Tab Bar Extension does not seem to remember configuration settings. I changed the Tab Location from Bottom to Top, Sort By Document Name, Min Button Width, Button Style, and Tab Highlighting. When I stop Kate and restart, these changes are lost. - Dec 15 2007
Kate Tab Bar Extension

Nice addition to Kate.

Subject: Clicking Tabs shortens Main Toolbar

When I click the a tab, the "Main Toolbar (KatepartView)" loses actions. Each time I clik a Tab, another action disappears and the Toolbar gets shorter and shorter. I went from 20 to 9 actions. It seems to stop there. When I stop and start Kate the Tool Bar is restored.

I did a reset to default for the Toolbar and the actions I added were gone. But as soon as I clicked a Tab, they reappeared. I stopped and started Kate and the default Toolbar was restored. I clicked multiple Tabs on the Tab Bar Extension and all appeared okay. It is only when I add actions to the Toolbar that this strange behavior starts.

How I added:

Configure->Toolbars
Selected: Main Toolbar KatePartView

I added 3 actions:
Collapse Top Level
Expand Top Level
Highlighting

I clicked on Change Icon for each (although this didn't seem to make a difference). - Dec 15 2007
Kate Tab Bar Extension

Is this Tab Bar Extension still going to be the default in KDE4?

The current Tab Bar Extension jumps from one line to another when a simple edit/save is done. I can't see a way to keep the Tar Bar Extension on its *own* line, rather than jumping around. I'm looking for options - thus my arrival here.

Thanks. - Dec 10 2007
