Kubuntu creates empty folders in my home dir
After some time with suse, I decided to try Kubuntu 8.04. After a week of installation, I noticed that some folders were added to my home dir that I did not create such as: addons, lang, manifests, runtime, uninstalled, user profiles. All these dirs are empty. Is that a normal thing for ubuntu distros? In suse, no such thing happens. Thanks.

Which is your home directory?

Whichever it'd be, i've none of those directories...
Where did you get Kubuntu from?
What did you do to spend a entire week for installing it? (it's almost automatic for me)

Those appear to be java folders. Did you install java or a java dependent app?

Thanks for responding.

the folders are in my home dir: /home/user.

About the installation, I meant that after the installation was done, a week has passed by, meaning I have been using kubuntu for a week.

I went to the ubuntu website and used the option to download the torrent rather than from the site since torrents are faster.

The only thing I installed myself was wine,flash,xine, mlayer, and compiz-fusion. I upgraded the system 2 times from the package manager for security and upgrades.

I am sure java was installed automatically when I installed the system.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 05:48 AM.
