| IIRC, if you can't do what's required via KControl you need to apt

In my experimenting I've managed to make things worse. In KControl there's 
a check box "Apply colors to non-TDE applications. I unchecked it and it 
did not fix the problem, but it did make menus in both TED and non-TED 
applications very tiny indeed; also the text in, for instance, KMail -- 
*all* of KMail. I quickly rechecked it, but it did not revert to the way 
it was before, so I now have tiny text all over the place. No fun. Still 
trying to figure out how changing colors in non-TDE applications should 
have changed the font size in pretty much everything.
