  I know a lot of Pan water has flowed under the bridge since then, but I have 
now moved from SuSE 9.0 to Mandriva 'Free 2007'.

As you may know, that Mandriva distribution installs 'new' Pan 0.119, and for 
various reasons (e.g. I still use dial-up), I don't find the new Pan usable - 
so I have replaced it with Pan 0.14.2. (This was from the SuSE RPM, and a new 
Mandriva 'libgnet' library had to be installed first.)

0.14.2 is working beautifully (having copied the SuSE '.pan' directory over) 
EXCEPT that I cannot get the background colour changed.
   Under SuSE I did that - as you suggested way back  - via KDE's 'colour' 
controls; no problem.

However, under Mandriva that change will not take effect (even though I did 
check the 'Apply to non-KDE programs' box), although it did affect other 

The only explanation I can think of is that there is somewhere a mismatch 
between the SuSE Pan RPM code and Mandriva, so I am trying to find a recent 
Mandriva RPM for 0.14x.

Can anyone help with this problem, please?
