Hi, Doc.  As someone has already told you, we have a wiki at  
I've no problem with answering questions about this on or off-list.  You'll 
find that most things you are used to are possible, but many are done in a 
different way, so don't be afraid to ask.

One think I'd point out from the start is that systemsettings, which takes the 
place of kcontrol, looks sparse in comparison.  That's because several groups 
of controls have been moved to the applications that use them, rather than 
kept in the generic control center.  HTH
