Question fluxbox using kde appearance settings


When I first loaded Linux on my machine, I used KDE. I changed the KDE appearance to include transparent menus and applied a theme/style.

I've now switched to fluxbox. When I run KDE applications (e.g. KPDF) and access a toolbar menu, it renders it using the original KDE style settings. Is this normal and expected? Is there anyway to disable such behavior?

Thanks,
j0rd4n

Your individual user preferences for Kde are stored in ~/.kde. Just delete that hidden folder, and force Fluxbox to use it's own settings, instead of the Kde settings.

Also search through /etc for files relating to Kde and Fluxbox to see if there is a config somewhere which looks for desktop environments in some preferential order.

find /etc -type f | grep 'kde'
and
find /etc -type f | grep 'fluxbox'

You will have to be root to get a thorough search of /etc, since some of the files are closed to normal user.

Thanks, I'll check that out when I get back home. Now when you say, "Force fluxbox to use it's own settings," are you talking about generally removing the KDE preferences as mentioned, or is there an explicit way to tell fluxbox use its own appearance properties?

Believe it or not, this didn't help. In fact, the .kde file was regenerated when I loaded the first KDE app from fluxbox. I also tried removing the .kderc file with no luck. Any other ideas?
