How to change KDE 3.3 Desktop font color ?


I know I've changed the desktop font color before, but that may have been with an older KDE version, and I can't seem to find that option in the KDE control panel any longer. Using KDE 3.3.2 from Debian unstable.

Anyone know where it is?

Right click on the Desktop, then select Configure Desktop. Set you options in the dialogue that opens.

Thanks for the reply, but I've looked there. I think this has changed since previous versions of KDE.

It gives configuration options for Background, Behavior, Multiple Desktops, Screen Saver, and Display.
And there is nothing under any of the tabs under these option either.

What version of KDE are you running?

Then click the "advanced" button under the thumbnail of the desktop wallpaper. You'll see the option for change font color there.

There it is ! Thanks, that has got to be the only place I didn't check.
Sometimes the simple things are the most frustrating.

Man, this was driving me crazy today! I was trying to chage the desktop font on KDE 3.5.10 for this Slax CD I'm running. So let me add my thanks to those who answered four years ago, and thanks to Mr. Google for helping me find this. Glad to note that this is a LOT easier to find in KDE4! (But I still love KDE3).
