    KDE and screen resolution

    Just installed Slackware 10 and KDE 3.2. I usually use Gnome, but I thought I
    would try KDE (a lot more stuff listeddd). Anyway, I set my screen resolution to
    800 x 600, and the desktop comes up that way and this site comes up that way,
    but most everything else comes up 1024 x 768 and I can't read that very well. What can I do besides change to Gnome?

    Ehh, I don't understand what you are getting at? The WindowManager is at 8x6 but everything else is 1024x768? Then the windows are too big to fit on the screen!? Can you explain a little more?

    Ok, here I am logged into Linuxfoo using Mozilla 1.7 which comes with Slackware 10. The linuxfoo screen seems to be 8 x 6 and is easy to read, but the Mozilla program resolution seems to be 10 x 7 and is REALLY hard to read. I did not have the problem in Gnome. When I set it to 8 x 6 I got 8 x 6 for everything. It's weird that some things are ok and others are very small and hard to read. Maybe that is just the way it is in KDE. How do I switch back to Gnome to see if is any better?
