    Saving settings...

    Riddle me this:
    I have a notebook that I'm currently running Xandros Open Circulation on. Well, as nice as Xandros is, it's a bit crippled and I just plain like Debain better (got Sarge on my desktop).
    Anyway, I'm going to put Debian on the Lappy, but I'd like to save several things:
    Various files and my KDE settings (it looks real good). The files are obvious, make a backup on a CD or what not. But is there an effective way to copy my KDE settings over to Debian?

    IIRC, the KDE settings are saved in the ~/.kde folder. But I would beware that not all things may be able to be implorted. I know that in the past both KDE and GNOME had quirks from point point relase to point release.

    Just to make sure, I'd dd the whole /home and transfer it there. Like Schotty said, it's hard to tell if it's different versions of KDE (any software for that matter).

    Do you mean copy your KDE settings from Xandros to Debian? I don't think that will work as the Xandros KDE is very heavily modified from stock KDE.

    The easiest wya to do this is to basically have your /home directory on its own partition.

    Then whenever you want to install a new distribution or upgrade or whatever, just mount that partition as your /home.

    This method saves everything, evey program setting and all of your preferences.

    It can even continue a downloada using azureus once you start it up again.

    Sorted, i think thats what you should do

    i know this post was a long time agol, but i have just found it.
