"Welcome to part four of our look at the KDE 4.3 System Settings panel. In this section we'll tackle the Advanced User Settings under the Advanced tab. So let's take a look at what's available in this section and how it may benefit you.

"The Akanadi section is a single configuration window with two tabs which, interestingly enough, controls how your personal information is stored, managed and accessed on the system. This really isn't a section that you need to do anything with. More than likely this will be something that system administrators will handle, and the average person need not be bothered with it. Although there are some settings under the Akonadi Resources Configuration tab that will allow you to fine tune how data is saved, and where.

"The Audio CD's section is a rather interesting configuration panel. It allows you to configure how KDE takes the Audiocd IO slave and uses it to rip and encode audio cd's for you via Konqueror. Given the proliferation of MP3 players, and the need to convert your CD collection to MP3's or OGG Vorbis files for listening on your player, this kind of feature is highly needed."
