Xwpe and KDE
The xwpe mailing list only accepts messages from subscribers because of
previous spammers. I'm forwarded this message along with my response to
the mailing list and Dmitry.

One possible solution is to define all the colors to use colors already in
use by KDE. You could do this by adding to your .Xdefaults
Repeat for all 16 colors. (I don't know what colors are used by KDE so your
on your own there.)
Another possibility is to switch to a private colormap. Email me if you're
interested in this. (I already have code to do this for my simple graphics
library so I think it would be easy to paste in.)
