Got it, looks like this workspace now has a system default background 
image.  Thanks.  I couldn't do that without the cashews.

Yes, several times before I took the nuke option to ~/.kde4, with little or 
no effect, eveything seemd to be stuck with the same color schemes, yadda, 
yadda.  I don't know if this is true now, and its about time for this old 
fart to sign off for the night, I'm taking some sort of high-priced stuff 
for pneumonia for the next 10 days.  At 76+, and diabetic, my warranty long 
since expired, but I haven't, yet...

Thanks again.

Cheers, Gene
