4.1.

Why could I need KPager?

KPager can be used as an alternative to the pager applet in the panel. It has the advantage of being resizeable and within this able to show icon or pixmap views of the running applications, move the windows across desktops and run outside of the panel.

4.2.

How can I change the behavior of KPager?

Clicking the right mouse button anywhere within KPager lets you chose Configure from the context menu for displaying the settings dialog.

4.3.

Windows are transparent by default, how do I turn this off?

Currently, you cannot turn that option off within the config dialog, but you can do it manually like this:

Open the file $KDEHOME/share/config/kpagerrc with any text editor like KWrite or vi. If you have no rights to write that file, you may need to do it as root or contact your system administrator. In this file you will have to add a new key with the name windowTransparentMode with a number as value. Values are:

0 - No transparent windows at all.
1 - Only maximized windows are transparent.
2 - All windows are transparent (default).
