Log in KDE4 and change that.

I didn't install KDE4. I don't want to install KDE4.

If you only use KDE3 applications, they should obey the KDE3 settings. So
what's the problem? If you want to use KDE4 and/or its apps, you have to
install it and it will obey the KDE4 settings.



To restate Randall's original (and clearly articulated) problem, if KDE3.5 is
installed but *not* KDE4, some KDE4 applications are *still* installed. There
does not appear to be any way to change the default behaviour of those KDE4
applications that are installed as part of a default KDE3.5 install on
11.0/11.1 without installing KDE4 (or at least more substantial parts of it).

So stating that "if you want to use KDE4 and/or its apps" as you did above is
unhelpful. Randall didn't *want* to install KDE4 applications - the installer
did it for him by default...
