Bigger deal is
that you post to 2 different forums and by now I have
trouble to follow.
I was not sure whether the problem was with openSUSE or with KDE,
hence mailed to both Mail Lists. And it has been fruitful because
suggestions have come in from both Mail Lists.
If you are subscribed to either of them, there should be not trouble
following the thread.
It is trouble Jay.
First what you call thread is bunch of broken threads, not a single thread.
I guess that you don't see any problems because:
1- posts from both lists are in your Inbox
2- threading is not turned on, so you see all posts as list of mails, instead
connected by Message ID and References in a tree like structure where is
possible to follow who replied to what.
(That is the same problem I had once upon a time.)
I use mail client, KMail. It can be used with GMail and setup is not very
I keep mails sorted in folders by mail list.
Threading never works when one mail is in opensuse and the other in kde
folder. I do that because topics are not the same and mails should not be
mixed. The opensuse-kde list is for problems with KDE on opensuse. The kde
list on kde.org
is about KDE alone, without openSUSE perks.
When you see all mails a as list, and your answer is comming at the end, it
looks good to you, but for everyone else it is a mess of broken threads,
answers on wrong list, sumaries that quote everyone without referencing who
I found your answer to my posts posted to [kde] mail list.
I'm only about month on KDE (kde(a)mail.kde.org). Before that I would consider
you mails as very inconsiderate and ignore them.
You get advice for free, but before you ask further you should do something
with that advice, and tell us what you did and what was result. Posting
answer in the way that we can't see it, is not good idea. Very soon people
will start to ignore you posts.
Also, I found answer to Boyd's mail from [kde] posted here on [opensuse-kde].
You can't assume that your choice of mail lists is universal.
Next problem is that you answer to few people without referencing answers.

I use a 17" (widescreen) Monitor (LG 177WSB) set at it's native
resolution of 1440 X 900.
And the nVidia Driver (180.29) for the nVidia GeForce 8400GS Graphics

PS > One last shot, perhaps the display size in xorg.conf is incorrect???
I don't think there's any problem with
xorg.conf, since the display
in KDE 3.5 and XFCE is fine.
This mix is not OK.
I marked answers with RM, AW, PS, but that should not be necessary.
The level of quotes implies the person, and same level (in this case > >)
I did not say text marked with AW and PS.
I wasn't confused with your initial post, as I've seen what is the problem.
I did not propose that xorg.conf is problem, as I had no grounds to do so.
How far problems with summarizing without reference can go see below.

While whoever that was has right that you theme is culprit for problem, it
People that answering you do that for free, but with one caveat, everyone has
to be attributed properly, for what he/she said. The easiest way is to answer
to one mail at the time. That way every person knows what you did, and it
will have your answer automaticly attached to proper place in message tree.
To prevent messages to go in wrong place, don't crosspost.
It is highly unpopular anywhere I'm subscribed.
Post one message even if it is identical to each forum/mail list.
That way you can use filters that will automatically send messages to folders
that belong to that list and prevent you to answer in a wrong place.
There is more rules that we would like to be followed, as it makes everyone's
