I still have to deal with two different "configuration"

other (which is an other problem, different look and feel) how do i know
that i need kconfig when i want to tune app K? KDE and Gnome are two
different things, even though they do almost the same thing.
How is that different from normal operations? I have to use the configuration
dialog in KMail (Kontact) to configure my email client and the one in
Konqueror for that app and the one in Xchat for that app, etc., etc., etc.,
You *do not have* to use kcontrol every day. I use KDE as my desktop and I
only look at kcontrol about once a month because I *want* to change
something. It wouldn't even be that frequently if it weren't for the nature
of my profession (and of my nature, I'll admit :) ).
It is like
using Honda parts to fix a Fort, a handy mechaninc might make it work,
but it would be way easier to use Fort parts to fix a Fort.
Interesting analogy. Of course, I've never driven a Fort, though I've stood
on a couple of walls :) .
