Where are settings for apps saved?


Just installed Mandrake. Nice OS.

Anyway, I've started using things like KOrganizer, the FTP software, and other miscellaneous things. My question is this: where are the settings and data stored for these programs?

For example I'd like to be sure that I backup the KOrganizer data when I learn how to use rsync. Is it all in the Home directory? I don't see it there.

Thanks in advance,

Most configuration files are stored in your home directory...

e.g. if you use KDE then all of it's config files will be in


Likewise for gnome....
