Suse 9.1 Personal, under Control Center Desktop|Appearance is Missing!


I posted a previous thread about trying to get rid of text outline on Desktop icons. I believe I have discovered my problem, and it's, oh guess what, another problem! The KDE Help Center, and a few people running Suse, have told me to go to Control Center, then Desktop, then Appearance, but my problem is that Appearance is NOT THERE. Under Desktop, I have Behavior, Multiple Desktops, Panels, Taskbar, and Window Behavior, but no Appearance. The KDE Help Center specifically mentions the Appearance tab under 5.2.2, but none such tabs exist on my system.

Could have something to do with the version of KDE you're running. Maybe go to Control Center -> Appearance & Themes -> Background -> Advanced Options (button on RHS) -> Background Icon Text.

Cheers,

Gosh don't I feel like an idiot. For some reason (I don't even want to begin hypothesizing), I have NEVER seen that now incredibly obvious option. But yeah, it worked perfectly. Thanks for pointing out the one thing I never noticed. Odd though that the KDE Help Center explicitly refers to an "Appearance" tab under Desktop, which I now know isn't supposed to be there. Now if I can only figure out why I can't ./configure anything....that's for another thread. Thanks.

Oh, and actually, I don't feel like an idiot, but nice try Linux.

configuring w/ SaX2

<quote>Now if I can only figure out why I can't ./configure anything....that's for another thread.</quote>

I hope that this is pertinent:
My experience (limited/new) is SaX2 configuration (SUSE 9.1) fails with user su'd -- must log in as genuine root.
