Given how many people suggest to delete the entire .kde directory the first
time somebody experiences even the slightest problem with KDE, you might
actually find interested people...

(Hint: DO NOT delete your entire .kde directory if you have KDE issues. If
you think it's a configuration issue, rename (don't delete!) the specific
config files most likely to cause issues. In case of Plasma, that's
plasmarc and plasma-appletsrc. In case of an application, that's the rc
with the application's name in it. The same also goes for other (non-KDE)
applications, always keep a backup (i.e. rename, don't delete) and only
rename the files actually related to your problem.)
