Disturbing that K5 puts 2-3 times as much or more directly in ~/.config/
than all other apps put there combined, making it a big mess, nasty to
selectively backup or restore, instead of using .config/plasma and/or
.config/kde5 and/or something else neat and clean as ~/.kde and ~/.kde4
were, and ~/.config/libreoffice, ~/.config/mc, ~/.config/smplayer,
~/.config/chromium and others are. Did upstream ever discuss this clutter
and decide it posed no problem being so different from other apps?
Disturbing or not, it's a welcome change to *me* that kde is now using XDG
standard locations, see references to XDG_CONFIG_HOME and XDG_DATA_HOME on
NOTE: you can adjust these environment variables to suit your own needs if
you prefer something other than their default locations.
