Hi I'm having trouble fetching the parent article.

I'm a KDE user (Slackware 12.0) and use Emacs with no trouble thanks to the 
Theme Engine (
version 0.7.  With version 0.6 I had my QT background in Emacs, which
was the typical "default background" (usually grey) behind my default
face.  However, with the new version, I get full control of the
default background.  The theme engine also makes it easy to switch GTK
themes if I want to use a different desktop (e.g., Enlightenment)
