    Your description of the problem is very vague.

    The kde and gnome widget styles, window decorations and even behavior, can be configured to some extent. The real question is WHAT exactly do you want to change or customize?

    There's no easy answer to your question. KDE and Gnome are very different, and those differences are bigger and bigger once you dive into the source (after all, the look and feel can only be tweaked to some extent, but the programming paradigms under both projects is radically different, starting with the languages and the toolkits).

    In any case, if you really know what you are doing, you should start by downloading the source code for the project you want to hack onto. And the place to do so is the home page of the project, of course.
