Like yourself (I imagine), I am getting to that age where my old eyes don't
like looking at computer screens with light backgrounds and dark fonts; I get
watery eyes and a headache after an hour or so.
In Konqueror, you need to check both <Settings> and <View/Configure
Background>; but it seems like you have already done that.
What you need to next is found in <TCC/Appearance & Themes/Colors/Alternate
Background in Lists>. (I have attached two screenshots, one of Konqueror, one
of TCC, which ought to be self-explanatory.)
For this last component, you may wish to search for a config file, with
extension .kcsrc (in the old KDE3). The TDE equivalent for this file has the
extension .kksrc, but otherwise they just reuse the same old KDE3 config.
* Small problem here: I forget where it's kept in Trinity. When I install my
system, I now just run a command that copies over all my settings, the same
settings that I've been using since 2006 or so, in KDE3 and then TDE. (I am
doing a search, using Konqueror, but it's slow.)
** Two possible locations:
(However, my desktop seems to obey the config file that resides in the first
location. Somebody else can correct me, if this is wrong.)
If you can find this config file and save backups of your original and your
customized settings, you'll save some headaches, because it's easier than
trying to recreate your preferred appearance.
