  1. Close the Surround SCM Client.
  2. Install the KDE Control Center from the Fedora Core distribution CD.
  3. Choose Actions > Run Application.
  4. Enter /usr/bin/kcontrol then click Run.
  5. Click Appearance & Themes then click Window Decorations.

  7. Click Apply.
  8. Click Style.
  9. Select a widget style other than the default.
