Hi out there!
This might be a non-amd64 specific problem, but while having it on my amd64 machine and only being subscribed here ... I'll just try to get an answer here. :o)
obviously, this is the wrong venue for this problem, as the many, many replies show :-) You'll most likely get better response on other lists, suse-kde or suse-linux e.g.
I use konqueror as filemanager most of the time when browsing my filesystem, but yesterday I encountered a problem never seen before and until now not being able to solve it: I can't change the size of the left hand treeview or the right hand directory content freely any more (I am sure some hours before it worked), it is fixed. This is a bit disturbing, because I can't see deeper directory structures in their whole width.
I searched several kde and konqueror config files, tried changing some stuff in there, but no success: the columns remain fixed.
Remark: this only happened with my own account (which is in fact the only one regulary running in X). Another existing one with previously used KDE and konqueror behaves as usual, and also a newly 'created' KDE setting with the first use of KDE of another existing account doesn't show these fixed columns.
This would indeed suggest your problem has something to do with the settings for this specific user.
Any hints, suggestions and so on are much appreciated, I hate such senseless restrictions ...
While I don't actually know how your problem came about and what could be wrong, there is a procedure that often helps in such cases and might in yours as well. I suggest you remove the konqueror configuration files for this user found in ~/.kde/share/config/ and ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/ (simply rename them to yxz.backup or something like that), then restart KDE with this user. New standard configuration files should be created, and hopefully your problem has disappeared. If you find any settings you need have disappeared as well, set them again; if anything is unclear, you can always look at the old configuration files you renamed, or rename them again to use them once again.
