KDE - Configuration


This is a whole bunch of problems, probably interrelated, concerning the configuration of KDE running with with SuSE 8.1:

After first installation of the system, root and the two users had different default menu-layouts each. Why? Is there no default user?

When I am using kmenuedit the structure of the actual menus is not shown in kmenuedit as shown on the desktop (i.e. K3b in sub menu Tools of the main menu can't be found -- as a matter of fact even the sub menu Tools isn't there at all). How can I connect the two?

I would rather edit a config file (for 1. root, 2. the default user and 3. individual users). Does anybody know where I can find them (if they exist in form of text files at all)?

Analog question for icons. Do they have config files as well, where?

Thanks for any hints. I have even more questions, but I'll shut up (for now).

No, your working on a mult-user system

All the kde configurations are in .kde in your home folder (~/.kde)

That's not a logical reason (that I can see). On the contrary, there must be a template for the new users when they get installed -- and there should be only one (plus one for root).

Thanks for the information. Does that mean, that I have to edit / overwrite / copy to, every time I create a new user? I can't believe that.

Can individual settings of the users then be found in /home/user1/.kde, /home/user2/.kde etc.? What rules are there for preferences (first ~/.kde then /home/userx etc.)

Individual settings are stored in the home folder so if you've got a kde setting just the way you want it, you could copy ~/.kde to all other users. Then you'd have exectly the same kde settings for all your users.
btw, the ~/ stands for /home/<user>/
