Hmmm, how is that script called? Thats what I wonder about. I have *lots* of data in ~/.kde. martin@shambhala:~> LANG=C du -sh .kde 367M .kde Thats: - IMAP folder indexes for KMail - extremely complex KMail configuration with tons of filters - Calender, journal, todos, address book, almost everything thats provided under the hood of Kontact - Baskets (http://basket.kde.org) It is vital to be able to migrate all that safely. I do not intent to copy over ~/.kde verbatim. Just necessary bits an pieces. But I wonder how good migration of that data works out. Does it work out of the box? Thats why I thought about the smooth migration. Well maybe its to much hassle and I just spring into the water and see how it goes. KDE 4.1.3 looks nice in VirtualBox and KDE 4.2 is coming...
