Question How to make KDE look nice in Redhat 9

Hi Guys....I'm SOOO new to the linux arena...I'm running redhat 9 with KDE. Is there any good software out there to enhance the look of the desktop. I find the kde desktop very boring, and I like the visual stuff. I always see screen shots of people's desktops, and it always looks soooo kewl....Could some of you share what apps to run, or where to read up more about this?

Thanx, and greetings from South Africa (Pretoria)

KDE has enough options to make the desktop look great without any extra software. Go to settings/control centre (might be slightly different on yours). YOu can play with all of the options there. However, if you want loads of great themes/wallpapers/icons etc., go to . Get the icon set Umicons - it's great (obviously there's loads of icon sets, but IMO this is by far the best I've seen)
