My $HOME is already set to the correct setting which is home of user.
I dont think a recompile is needed. It sounds like a variable or script change issue, such as startkde.
Currect is/home/user/Desktop I want to change to this /home/user
If I had to recompile to change this, I would say this is probably the worst software design ever, that is what variables are for.
I have been using XFCE/windowmaker
for years now, and have built my own LFS and just recently installed KDE 3.2 and I was quite impressed....it is the best desktop I have seen. (rant on kde coming in 5,4,3,2,1) But to place my desktop as /home/user/Desktop, will that kinda pisses me of
So, I dont know much about KDE configuration, but I find it hard to believe that I would need to recompile. Seems like it would be easier to just to ln -s /home/user /home/toolshed/Desktop
Can you send me ./configure parameters you added, or some docs that says this.
