[SOLVED] I hope I'm not duplicating....
...but I searched as long as I could tolerate.
I have installed Mandriva 2008.0 on my HP Pavillion TX 1410 US tablet PC.
I installed all of the desktop environments available on the DVD, and now I have a problem with KDE. KDE was working, and I had it set up to only four virtual desktops (default). But my dektop pager now shows 9 windows. Additionally, have a grid of nine windows in the lower right hand corner of my screen that allows me to snap to nine virtual desktops by left clicking, or I can right click and move my viewable area anywhere in the grid, even on the lines. It actually looks like my screen resolution is somehow set extremely high, and this is a navigation pane.
I tried to change my multiple desktops to only three, but I ended up with 27. I went down to one and now I am back to only nine in the pager.
i would really like some assistance if anyone has the time and the know-how.
