Thank you for the advice, and I will be more careful about caps. I have found
out thet even on Mandrake I can avoid kde, and I do, except for kmail which I
kind of like.
I've one of these problems with kde too. I d/l and made X-4.2 on another
system, and found I had *tiny* fonts in everything, which I worked around by
setting fontsize at 64. My choices are
1. Ask everyewhere (Which I did).
2. Wade through gigabytes of irrelevant html (The 'help' files) in hope.
3. the m$ solution (delete & reinstall), which rarely works in linux anyhow.
4. Live with it.
