Ensure opensuse displays properly on a 1024x576 netbook screen

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution


Dear Devs,
I currently run opensuse 11.2 on a lenovo S10e netbook with a kde desktop.
As it not uncommon in the netbook world the screen resolution is 1024x576 (16:9) rather the the 1024x600 (16:10) which may be more familiar.
The problem is that menus for critical functionality such as NetworkManager are too tall for the display even if resized, so it is physically impossible to "apply" settings as this button is always at the bottom of the dialogue box.
Can effort be made to ensure that opensuse 11.4 does not have menus for critical system components such as NetworkManager which will not display at typical netbook screen resolutions?

Kind regards

1024x600 is not 16:10, by the way. (It's 128:75 in case you wondered.)

it is considered to be a 16:10 res for the purpose of general use and understanding, but thank you for the detail.

I miss the days when one could memorize all the standard screen resolutions, 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024...before the dilution of wide screen, meh waste of space. But I agree with the issue...although this sounds like it needs to be solved upstream.
