2.3.1. How Do I Do That?

Most KDE configuration is performed through the KDE Control Center, which is found on the K menu. The Control Center is shown in Figure 2-9.

If you do not have KDE installed, you can install it; see Lab 5.3, "Using Repositories." 

Figure 2-9. KDE Control Center 

Fedora Linux

 Along the lefthand side of this window, there is a collapsible menu of configuration categories; each category contains several subcategories, which can be revealed or hidden by clicking on the +/- icon in front of the category name. Each subcategory is handled by a separate configuration module . When you click on a configuration category, the configuration module for that category is shown on the righthand side of the window.

You can also configure some desktop components by right-clicking on them. For example, right-clicking on the desktop and selecting Configure Desktop will bring up a subset of the Control Center options, which is useful for changing the appearance of the desktop.

Unlike GNOME, KDE settings are not usually automatically applied; you must click on the Apply button before your changes take effect.

An alternative, express way to change basic KDE desktop settings is to select Settings->Desktop Settings Wizard (or enter the command kpersonalizer), which will walk you through the process of setting the most common desktop options.
