Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

It doesn't so much matter that you are using kde, as it does matter which program you are using. If you are using kwrite, then no, I don't think so. On the bright side, if you are just trying to avoid the clutter, there is something you can do with kwrite: Settings-> configure editor-> Open/Save-> Prefix = .
If the Prefix setting is comprised of a single period, then every temporary save file will have a period added to the front of it. In unix (and linux) this will make it a hidden file. The file will still be there, but you wont normally be able to see it.
Why would you want to that? I would think that right there near the original is where it would be most useful. -- It's not that it's some kind of versioning control. One problem w/ putting them all in the same dir. is name space collision.
