where are Kooka settings stored?


Does anyone know where the Kooka settings file(s) are stored? I screwed up the appearance of my Kooka window, and have been unable to revert, so I would like to delete the Kooka settings file in hopes of starting over. (I tried uninstalling Kooka, but it didn't help--the settings weren't deleted.) I only know it's somewhere in my home folder, because I opened Kooka in another user account, and found the default settings there.

How exactly did you reinstall it? Did you use purge or uninstall?

I just went to Synaptic and clicked uninstall and then, afterward, reinstall.

Do the same thing, only instead of "uninstall", use "purge".

There is no such command in Synaptic.In case you meant apt-get in a terminal, I entered that, and it did delete kooka, but did not solve the problem. When reinstalled, the old settingsremained.

Okay, I think I have discovered the solution myself. There is a file called "kookarc" in /home/kde/share/config; that has to be the key. I can't test whether it is, because before discovering it, I disabled KDE in my user account by deleting the wrong thing; but it has to be this file.
