KDE desktop tooltips

How does one turn off those annoying desktop tooltips in KDE. I really don't use KDE that often, but alas I been playing again. I really can't take it though eveytime my cursor hovers over a desktop icon, an annoying bubble if useless info pops up. I googled and tried weeding thru the control center, but I thought soemone here could save me some shoe leather as nothing jumped out at me.

Kde control center/looknfeel/style and click disable tooltips, this is on an older kde ver 2.2.2, so might be a little different on yours.
