Themes Fluxbox etc.?


I am running Suse 9.1 with KDE. I like it, but I want to mess around with the themes colors etc.

I know a little bit about fluxbox ... but what is the best way to go about this?

I am also wary of blowing up my computer messing with it, so in other words, I want something easy to use.

Is there a better program than fluxbox and the tools Suse provides? Any Suggestions?

I don't know, do I? What does it entail?

Does it replace KDE?

KDE is a Window Manager as is Fluxbox so yes it would replace KDE.

Are you just looking for a theme manager?

I guess that is what my question was kind of driving at, what is the best option here?

I do not really want to get rid of KDE, I like it, but would like more themes and looks, so perhaps I do want a theme manager yes... unless there is something better ...

well, kde and fluxbox are TOTALLY different! when you have questions like "will fluxbox replace kde?", then go and try both. and you'll see:-))) i think that a kde user will not understand that small and poor fluxbox, so as a fluxbox user (like i am) cannot understand that huge and monstrous KDE :-)

fluxbox - a perfect window manager, really ;-)
