Unable to disable GUI effects in KDE 3.5 (Fedora Core 5)
So, I have these nifty nVidia drivers installed, openGL is enabled on my GeForce 5200 FX card. I, being a sucker for eye candy, enabled my shadows and transparency.
The problem I'm having is that on the menus, there is a double shadow being drawn. So, to solve the problem, I jot right over to the Control Center, navigate to the Style section to disable the GUI effect "menu drop shadow" or something similar, but leaving the translucency/shadows through compsiting enabled.
And...nothing changes..? So, naturally, I close the Control Center, re open it, and the checkbox magically rechecked itself. [insert eerie twilight zone music]
So, I uncheck the checkbox again, hit apply, and without opening any menus or anything, pull a Ctrl-Alt-Bksp to restart X. Still, K-Menu and any other menu still has that funky double shadow deal. Full reboot still won't do the trick.
Is there any configuration file I can edit, maybe even in runlevel 3 (text only) that will disable the GUI effects, or at least allow me to change their values?
I found that if I run the Bluecurve theme (which is default), it doesn't support GUI effects, so the shadows are all proper without the weird effect mentioned above. But man, it's ugly. I prefer my Qt-Curve.
Any tips? Bluecurve makes my eyes hurt.
