Changing K-menu (too big) KDE 3.2.1.


My K-menu (startmenu) has icons which are too big. Changing icon size or styles in the Control center has no effect on the k-menu.
The menu covers almost the whole screen.

How can i make the k-menu smaller?
I am using Fedora core 1, kde 3.2.1.

TIA,

Andre

Have you tried gnome?
Better control over the look and feel...
And even better, window maker, bleckbox or fluxbox...

Does those icons change on your startmenu (k-menu)?
Only the icons on the taskbar changed.

I know that there is new updates for KDE right now on www.kde.org,
so download all of them, maybe 17 or 18 and enter the kde packet manager, remove old and add new one and one, maybe the updates will fix the prob..
