In KDE, go to Preferences/Look&Feel/Style, there's a checkbox that says "apply 
fonts and colors to
non-KDE apps"
If you uncheck that, it should not interfere with your Emacs (you may need to 
re-start KDE).

But, if you want to keep that feature turned on without interfering with your 
Emacs, modify the
file (search in /usr/share/apps/kdisplay/app-defaults/ 
That's where you tell
KDE how to set the Xresources to the Emacs application.

I have the following lines commented out so that they don't change my Emacs 
!Emacs.default.attributeForeground:    WINDOW_FOREGROUND
!Emacs.default.attributeBackground:    WINDOW_BACKGROUND
!Emacs*Foreground:          WINDOW_FOREGROUND
!Emacs*Background:          WINDOW_BACKGROUND
;Emacs*font:                FIXED_FONT

In this way, KDE still changes the colors/fonts of other applications AND also 
some things in
Emacs (like the Menubar for example, which matches the KDE-menus colors/font).

Good luck!
