    Do all gnome applets like tomboy,... work in KDE?

    Hi,

    The KDE 4.4 looks very nice and I am thinking to move to KDE.
    however, before deciding that I am looking to know the following things:

    - Does applets like tomboy works in KDE?
    - Does .bashrc and .profile are the same between KDE and Gnome?
    - Is there something like epidermis available in KDE to change the theme?
    - Is there something like Ubuntu tweak available for KDE and Kubuntu?


    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    Gnome applets work.
    .bashrc is same
    KDE has all sorts of theme editors and desktop effects changer built in.

    -I use basket instead of tomboy so I do not know. generally applets built for gnome will not work without the gnome panel, however as far as I can remember tomboy can stay in the notification area.
    -I would assume this to be true.
    -How I wish this were true, however under 4.4 most of the appearance settings are under [system setting>appearance]
    -KDE does not hide any settings from the user. also ubuntu tweak will also work.

    - you can use tomboy on the systray instead of the gnome-panel applet.
    - .bashrc and .profile have nothing to do with your desktop environment, it is the same even in a tty session
    - don't know, sorry
    - don't know, sorry
