Hi,

My system is gentoo 64 bit, KDE 5 + Plasma, up to date.

The system is upgraded from KDE 4, so I want to complete reset my desktop settings. I tried to delete:

- ~/.config/kde*
- ~/.kde*

But after restart, the KDE environment still remember my KDE Wallet settings, and wifi settings. I wonder if there's any configuration files I missed.

Most Plasma 5 settings seem to have moved to no longer be in any KDE-specific directory. For example, I have ~/.config/kwalletrc.

I do not think that is step forward

Today I was on the same mission. The config files are scattered everywhere in the .config directory. And what about ~/.cache/ksys*,plasma*, ~/.local/share/k* ... This is a pure mess! :x What the heck is the reason not putting this into one folder?

I fear more and more: USERS DON'T TOUCH CONFIG FILES (we know best)

and notice the move away from simple text file config files to xml and other
obsfucations

not the linux way :cry:
