Happy to report I finally found a fix / workaround:
(This applies to KDE plasma screen on Kubuntu and hence may not work for every Linux flavour)
- By right-clicking on the top titlebar, then selecting “More Actions” followed by “Configure Special Window Settings” you’ll get a special menu.
- Pick the “Size & Position” tab
- Select “Size” and option “Force” then enter a suitable value for your particular screen resolution.
( you may have to try different settings)
- Click on “OK” and you’re done.
…I had a little bonus surprise as I suddenly got a pointer location indicator on the bottom left corner which I never had before.
Follow up: After further testing and actual use with Laser I’ve made the following observation:
With above mentioned method the initial screen is fine. However, when loading a file the screen is refreshed and it reverts back to original settings. → Fix for this is to select “Special Application Settings” in above mentioned menu, rather than the Window Settings.
Unfortunately this results in all sub-windows displayed within Lightburn reverting to your custom screen size. I.e. opening the Machine Settings will be full size as well.
I still prefer this to not having all components of screen displayed as it was before.
