Default KDE4 profile dir


We have a lot of users with KDE3.5 settings stored in ~/.kde and we are migrating to F11 with KDE 4.2. It would be much easier for us if we could use a new fresh ~/.kde4 directory. I believe this is the default for KDE4 but it seems that in Fedora it is ~./kde. Does anyone know if it is possible to change this? Is it a compile time option?

On a related note is there any known way to give first time (existing) users of KDE4 a custom default configuration? For example if I wanted to replace Kickoff with Lancelot?

Yes, by setting KDEHOME env variable, using something like:
in ~/.bashrc (or equivalent).

There's more docs on
