KDE backup settings for a fresh KDE deployment
 
Is there a way to back up, in its entirety, the KDE Desktop settings?
Or, are there only certain aspects of KDE that one can backup?

For example, I'm running a Linux distribution with KDE. Then I get another computer using Linux and KDE. Is there a way to transfer all settings such as:
- wallpaper
- the Main panel
- extra panels
- programs on panels (applets)
- Kontact
- screensaver settings and my default screensaver.

I tried looking for a basic web site that just answered those simple backup questions. I even checked the KDE website but was unable to find anything. At http://www.kde.org/, I did a search for backup settings.

Have a safe and happy New Year's!

I'd simply back up and transfer your home directory to the new system. The home directory contains all settings of a user.

Hi Falko,

I didn't realize I could do that.

I had thought that different distributions perhaps would treat the home directory differently. And that simply copying my home directory wouldn't do the trick.

Thanks for letting me know!
