kde general behavior


hey

the very first time you fire KDE you are prompted to choose a general behavior for KDE (redmlond, MacOS,..) I choosed one (MacOS) but would like to switch now...
cannot found the similar menu again...
and this very same point doesn't existit in Kontrol....

I klnow I can erase my .kde/* but....will loose all my settings... :S

Any idea?
Do I have to redefine all the key shortcuts?!!

Regards,,
Ben

Control Center --> Peripherals --> Mouse

This doesn't start the wizard, but all the settings the wizard sets are configurable here.

mmmh I guess you think about 'look and feel' of the mouse pointer and behavior?
sorry my question was probably not clear.
I am willing to change the _behavior_ of the whole KDE: the shortcuts to switch between windows (ALT+TAB and not CTRL + TAB), the presence (or NOT) of the MAc OS toolbar...I know all of these can be manually changed but I would like to know if the overall selector is still available after the first use of KDE..?

Oh, I see. Sorry. I thought you wanted to change single-click to double click behavior.

I had a good look at my kde bin directory and could not find anything that restarts the wizard in question (which is not to say it isn't there...). I suppose you may have to mv .kde to .kde.bak or something, restart kde afresh, and after choosing the settings you want start manually moving back the config files you want preserved. Is that easier than ressetting everything manually?

Another idea is to hit up the kde mailing list or #kde on IRC. I am sure some kde developer or power-user will have some idea how to restart the wizard...

Good luck on your search, and sorry to be so useless
