16 OS/2 to Linux Client Transition
The file is broken into separate sections using square brackets. The KDE section
shown in the following example specifies how the desktop interacts with its icons,
the mouse, and the color scheme in use. Most values can be changed using the
variables true or false.
The General section shown in the following example is used to configure such
items as the fonts in use on the desktop and the colors used in windows and
folders. Items in the General section that deal with colors are configured based
on the RGB color format which is also used in OS/2.
A second kdeglobals file is created the first time a user logs in to the KDE
environment. This is placed in the user’s home directory and is created the first
time they log on the KDE desktop. For example, user Fiona’s second kdeglobals
file is in the location /home/fiona/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals.
This second kdeglobals file allows for the configuration of extra variables that are
not included in the first kdeglobals file. Example 2-3 shows the default file
created when our user first logs on.
