Can KDE windows drag with only the title bar?

Hi,
I'm having an issue with Guitarix, a guitar effects program. It has knobs that you click and drag to change the values like gain, treble, distortion, etc. In KDE, when I click and drag the button, The whole program window moves and the focus on the knob I am trying to adjust is lost. When I release the mouse button and move the mouse around, the knob value changes, but it is very erratic. I've used the same program with different desktops and I don't have this issue with them. I've turned off all the desktop effects with no improvement.

Question: Is there a way to limit the movement of a window by only the title bar? This is for FC17, though it looks like FC15 has the same trait in the card game Kpatience.

Best,
Greg

Try going to system settings -> application appearence -> style and click the "Configure..." button. From there change "Windows' drag mode" to "Drag windows from titlebar only".

That was a new "feature" KDE added a few versions ago. If you don't have the option that ah7013 mentions, it depends on your current theme, you will need to run oxygen-settings from a terminal.

Thank you both. It took a while to load KDE back on the computer, 933 updates. The knobs in Guitarix work as they should now.
