AFAIK there's some code in GNOME which shares those files. KDE 4 doesn't
support it. KDE 3 had some sort of user file sharing (disabled by default
and had to be manually configured), but it never got ported to KDE 4.
Okay. I'll browse through the existing fedora repository and
to see if there is anything to make use of it. Also, a
user I was helping last night wanted a locally shared (filesystem,
between users) folder... seems like it's something that should be
easy. It was easy for me, but I am not sure how a regular user would
approach the problem.
It may be useful to have a /usr/shared (or similar) and ln -s
