KDE Resolution problem.

It sounds like you're running at low resolution alright. What resolution does your monitor support? Try running SaX2 again and matching up your resolution. I usually get around the 'not seeing buttons' problem by tabbing to the buttons offscreen and hitting space until one does what I need I'm sure with a quick SaX2 runthrough you'll be fine.

You can go to YaST under the system menu, then choose hardware, then Graphics Card and Monitor. Alternatively you can go to a terminal, something like konsole, then typeCode:

Shoot sorry - My mistake, I have a bad habit of looking at distros listed under the avatar...Sorry for the time wasting there Dave.
My slack experience is limited outside of Slax and an install about a year ago. Anyone else know of the tools in Slack? xorgcfg?

I will show you a snippet from my lappy:
#VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Monitor Model"
I think this works out to about 1024x768 you can mess with the VertRefresh rate to make it even smaller try 60-120 (you can see all of your choices if you run xorgconfig
NOTE: check with your manufactures monitor manual for accepted screen sizes.
Good luckSome people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

Hidden buttons running KDE in low resolution
I frequently run KDE in low resolution (like in VMWare without the video drivers). Although I think it violates their guidelines, there are many dialogs (even in the KDE control center) that can't fit their contents and their buttons on the screen in 800x600.
Here's the trick when you can't see the buttons:
Use the window panning feature by holding down the ALT key and left clicking and dragging the window around until the buttons are visible.
