RH 8.0 and real Gnome and KDE


I don't like that Gnome and KDE are the same, it's boring and slower. Does anybody know of a way to go back to real Gnome and KDE and not Bluecurve? I like the foot on the panel, not some redhat.

I like RH ok, but their graphics and stuff don't please me. I use it at work so much I thought I should use it at home. Now I think I might go back to Mandrake or Suse if I can't get rid of this 'redhat we make it all the same' crap.

For gnome,

In your Preferences, select Theme, and then select which ever theme you want.

BlueCurve is a theme....

RedHat 8 includes Gnome 2 and KDE 3.0.3.

I found with my installation of RH8, that I received errors when starting Gnome "Settings Daemon Not Found". I tracked this down to a missing package, "control-center". When I installed that RPM, the errors ceased and I was happy to find the "themes" settings in Preffs...

I got KDE to show the KDE logo on the corner instead of the RedHat, but outsideof that it's still RedHatized. Not the normal KDE. I have tried the Gnome thing too, with no dice. I realize bluecurve is a theme. I guess I am more interested in having Gnome and KDE how they are in other distributions, different.

I don't like what RH did to make them similar, so I will just switch back to mandrake or suse when I get a chance.
