My problem, too :(

Ah... there did my colorschemes go ...:
.trinity/share/apps/kdisplay/color-schemes/NIK DUNKEL.kcsrc
.trinity/share/apps/kdisplay/color-schemes/NIK GANZ DUNKEL.kcsrc
.trinity/share/apps/kdisplay/color-schemes/NIK DUNKEL 2.kcsrc
.trinity/share/apps/kdisplay/color-schemes/NIK 2012-11-11.kcsrc

Moved them over from .trinity/share/apps/kdisplay/color-schemes/ to .trinity/share/apps/tdedisplay/color-schemes/ , now I'm back in the game, thank you :)
I'm working my way through kmail now, looks like it has some settings I have totally forgotten ... (oh my, as time goes by ...)

Which makes me wonder, which of these folders in .trinity/share/apps/ are actually in use? Lots of them are from 2011 ... hm ...

Oh, would you mind sharing your colorscheme?
