Change KDE desktop font color


i've just started using kde and i'm just beginning to learn how to take in all this configuration power....

i have a dark background wallpaper on my desktop and i have black font on my desktop icon labels; i want them to be white

however, when i did manage to find something to change the color to white, konqueror and all the windows used that color for fonts as well and soon i could not read anything (since in konqueror's menus, the background is white)

how do i change the desktop font color without affecting anything else?

Right click on the desktop and choose "Configure Desktop" then "Appearance," you can also get to the same menu through the the control center (kcontrol).

KDE eats Gnome for breakfast.

On a related note. Is it possible to set the desktop font colours independently for each desktop?

Cheers
