Gordon, may I ask a silly question?!? What do you mean by "Go to the
KDEControlCenter"?!? Where is the KDEControlCenter? I could not find
any entry in the KMenu by this name (I even used the Search edit box,
to no avail). Or is it a terminal command -- like 'kmenuedit'? Please

I even opened an xterm shell and used the command "man -k kde" -- and
that listed a lot of commands -- but I could not identify any of these
as KDEControlCenter.

Maybe I need to install something to get it?!?
