Mainly for Brad, but if anyone else knows the answer...
In my home directory, KDE has put a directory .kde, with some sub-dirs
including one called share. In this there are a number of files and
directories some (many) of which encode an absolute path to files in
eg. in ~/.kde/share/config/startupconfigfiles, I have several refs to:
Is it possible to configure KDE at run-time to use relative paths
from the users home directory instead? If not, what about at build
time (I am using Kubuntu here, so I prefer not to rebuild)? If not
at all, then what is the thinking behind using these absolute paths?
The reason I am asking is two-fold:
- moving my home directory causes issues
- copying my home directory to be used as a template for others
also causes issues.
