KDE with kdesktop

I have found a way to turn off the showing of device icons on my KDE desktop using kdestop.

I now have to find the configuration file for kdesktop containing this setting.

I've had no lucking finding it. Anyone know where this file is located?

$ touch /tmp/now
Change the setting. Then run

$ find $HOME -newer /tmp/now
This will show you all files in your home directory that have been modified since /tmp/now was created. One of them will be the file that contains the setting you're interested in.
