how do I change the look of the KDE Panel?


I've been trying in Vain to change the look of my KDE Panel. Ive seen people with these cool looking panels and have always wondered how in the world do I change mine from the boring default, to one of those awsome looking panels?

If you want an OSX-like dock- get KSmoothDock. If you just want a transparent one-- snoop around the KControlCenter.

Put it this way, I want to change it to look like PCLinuxOS's KDE Panel.

right click on your panel then click configure panel to see the panel options. Also look on kde-look.org for kbfx styles to get the start button reddazz has.

The PCLinux OS panel uses a curved background image and a kbfx button. You can get all these from kde-look.org. I posted my own "greyscale kbfx buttons" on kde-look.org if you want to use them.
