Re: KDE 3.1.1 Fast as root but slow as User

That method has improved performance for me. However by default, Debian 
deletes the contents of the /tmp directory on reboot. Thus, the .ICE-unix and 
all of the mcop and dcop directories need to be recreated each time you start 
your machine up from scratch. But once these things have been set up, I've 
found that KDE will start up quite speedily.

I don't like the slow first startup as I can't leave my system on all the 
time. I'd like to disable /tmp clearing and clean things up myself. How does 
one go about this? Which init scrip is it?
