KDE Display problems

The edges of the fonts on my desktop icons have a white "ghost" around them. It is white 1 pixel dots outlining the fonts. This "ghost" also appears around most of my icons in KDE, not just the desktop icons.

Any ideas?

If you don't understand what I mean, I can upload a screenshot.

- Vendor and version of Linux
- Xmanager version

Re: Re: Re: KDE Display problems

KDE 3.2 supports a "Shadow" feature for font display. You can turn it off as following:

1. Right-click on the KDE desktop background.
RESULT: A menu appears.
2. Click Configure Desktop.
RESULT: A Configure Desktop dialog box opens.
3. From the menu on the left, click "background".
4. Click Advance Option.
5. Clear the "Enable Shadow" option.

This should solve your problem.
