Thread: KDE4 panel / task manager

  1. #1

    Default KDE4 panel / task manager

    Hi,

    I've recently installed openSuse 11.4 KDE. I love it, a bit of a learning curve as I am a traditional Gnome user, but I have to say KDE4 is great.

    Let me just say, I tried Ubuntu Natty and I struggled to get some of the features on my HP 8510w laptop working and openSuse 11.4 supported everything with no tweaking. It's stable, quick and I am extremely happy with the look and feel.

    I am just struggling with one thing. When I choose a dark desktop backgroud it makes text in the bottom panel hard to read. I don't want to disable the transparency (if that is possible) - I'd just like to change the panel text colour to a lighter colour.

    Is this possible in KDE4?

    Thank you in advance.

    there's different settings you can choose from the KDE application
    "systemsettings". you can type that into k-runner (alt+F2), in the KDE
    start menu (what's it's name, in the bottom left corner, usually), or type
    it into a command line interface.

    in these "systemsettings" you'll find options to change your application
    and/or desktop- or workspace layout, using themes or manual options.
