I might mention here that you changes will not take effect immediately. 
  At the minimum, you will have to kill: "plasma-desktop" and restart 
it.  Open a Konsole and:

	killall plasma-desktop

Sometimes plasma changes don't take effect unless you log out of your 
KDE session and delete the cache files.
