.kde folder

There is a folder you need to type a DOT,
it contains the wallpapers, it is not visible until you type the DOT,
why like that?

you can make a file OR directory to be invisable by putting a "." (dot) in front of it........
you can see these files/dir by using the ls -la command in your users OR roots <home> dir.......

Most hidden (dot) files or directories in /home/xxxx contain a users configuration information from the various programs you run. The good thing about this is that it prevents clutter in your /home directory because you only see the files and directories that you use on a regular basis and when you need to access your config files you can navigate to them in the command line or select to "view hidden files" in your file manager.
