Im using/experimenting with KDE at the moment.
I find it very hard (headache inducing) looking at the white panes (inside the windows).
For any length of time
I’ve had a look at the system settings and I can see a setting called "view background".
If alter this colour (to something like a light blue colour, then it’s much easier on the eyes).
But anything the requires a white background (like the Kate or Gedit text editors
main text entry screens are then also turned light blue too)
So is there a way to change the background panes of windows without affecting everything else?
(Like how you could change the insides of windows to a pattern or a colour in the older versions of Gnome/Nautilus).
I’ve had a good Google round the net and experimented with some of the settings (in system settings) without much joy.
OS = Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
TIA for any help or advice
1) Windows appear with no title bar
2) Window buttons don’t appear in tne desktop panel (despite the "Window Buttons" item being included in the panel with normal settings)
3) I only have a single workspace, even when I go into the settings and set the number of workspaces to 2)
4) The "Window Manager" section of the settings is blank (so I can’t change settings to see if this fixes/affects any of the problems).
5) In Firefox (but not any other applications) the pulldown menus vanish as soon as the pointer moves away from the top menubar, such that none of the menu options can be selected.
The Fn+F7 key combination to toggle laptop/external/both display mode doesn’t work, and trying to display on an external monitor is what originally seemed to prompt all the above issues.
This makes 11.04 pretty much unusable and I’ll have to revert to 10.10 soon (but if I manage to find any resolutions before then I’ll post them).
