Well, KDE4 does not share config with old kde, and so you should
your home .kde before starting. That will give you the basic.
This is incorrect and very bad advice!
KDE 4 should work with most KDE 3 configuration just fine, and migrate the rest
using kconf_update. Please file bugs (upstream at bugs.kde.org
) for where
settings should be migrated and aren't. (Plasma could probably use some
kconf_update magic to import old Kicker or kdesktop settings. As the code is
completely different, that's not so straightforward.)
But in any case, removing all of .kde is NOT a good idea. The worst that can
happen is that the old settings just get ignored, so deleting all of them
doesn't improve the situation. A lot of settings can be reused in KDE 4 with no
trouble at all.
