In general, kde4 applications use
and kf5/plasma5 applications use:
as you can see, old kde4 configurations in general ought not conflict, since
those old locations are no longer used.
I will start looking.
I agree that there shouldn't be any conflict but something affects my
old account but not the new account. This is a simple login and opening
an application causes a kwin freeze until I kill drkonqi. Yet in a
newly created account, there is no freeze.
Maybe it is one of the KDE4 apps that is conflicting. That is what I am
trying to find for the bug report.
Even opening Firefox causes a freeze on my old account.
Bug hunting time.
Also, I didn't realize that this simple question would raise a heated
discussion. FWIW, I agree, KDE should be following standards as this
makes it much easier to work with.
