.kde switch

Well i share my /home partition with 2 -3 differnt distros... It gives me an error that things arent writable when using one from the other distro.. Probably because of version difference.. Anyways can someone write a small script and tell me where to place it that would on start check if im running slackware or arch linux and then mv the .kde folder in the home directory to .kde.slack or .kde.arch depending on which distro wasnt being used?

Why don't you just create different users as joeslack, joearch, and so on. When you log in, each user's home will maintain the settings for the distro/WM environment.
