I tried what you suggested, e. g. place kdeglobals in some directory (for
example my home directory) and then issue 'kde-config --expandvars --install
config', but to no avail. Tried this as user as well as being root.

I followed some other suggestion and tried qtconfig for default font type and
size configuration, but this didn't seem to work either.

This still leaves me clueless.
