Yes, just tried this (I thought it might work that way). Maybe it works
when started *prior* to KDE, i.e. not from KDEs autostart (that's too
late), but before KDE is fired - so that KDE may overwrite the "Gnome2
background"? In this case I had to place it into my ~/.xsession before
the WM is started, right? Do you think it's worth a try?

I tried that (via ~/.xsession as described, this time I added a "&" at
the end of the line after RTFM on the "exec" command). It works to some
degree: the settings daemon is started (blue background), then KDE3
comes up as expected. So far so good - but a very nasty side-effect
makes it unusable: all fonts in KDE are messed up. Instead of text, I
only see a dot per line...

I'ld wish Evo had the "font" property again. Like it is for the message
text, the user could be given the choice to "use system defaults" or
"specify Evo-specific fonts", that would ease things a lot.

What do you mean by "system defaults"? Evolution uses the *Gnome* system
defaults. So set them using 'gnome-font-properties' when done with the
steps outlined below.

So long I
guess I have to live with the ugly-big-fonts in Evo...

Well, maybe you should check for the DPI value used in KDE and Gnome. If
they differ, fonts set with the same size (in pt, not px!) *will* be
displayed in different sizes.

Set both DPI values to the same value, then adjust the default Gnome
fonts and KDE fonts. They will match and you will be able to reduce the
current big font size.

Hope, that will solve your problems...
