    Default Where are the custom color schemes hiding in ~/.kde4

    So I ended up resetting my KDE (4.2) settings again, renamed my .kde4 folder to .kde4old as my keybindings were a mess and I thought it didn't start due to some settings, but that turned out to be /tmp running out of space.

    So where exactly in my .kde4old folder would I find colorscheme, did some googling but the results never seem to mention the location of the file. Woud like to restore and maybe even share my old color scheme.

    .kde4/share/config perhaps

    "The palette files installed by KDE can be either system-wide or the user ones. The latter are in you private KDE configuration folders, and they are named Custom Colors and Recent Colors."

    Well I got a Recent_Colors inside .kde4old/share/config/colors but where is 'custom' ..

    EDIT
    At least the current color scheme seems to be stored inside .kde4/share/config/kdeglobals
    So I got my colors back, didn't get the name back though, named it greener grass and that's nowhere to be found.

    I'd still like to know how to export the color scheme.

    As stated in the documentation:
    1. In KDE 4 colour schemes are files with the extension .clors
    2. You can found them in
    /home/you_user/.kde4/share/apps/color-schemes/

    But any way it looks very strange why there is no export button even save import and etc is available in systemsettings->appearance->colors

    May be it will be nice to write to KDE developers to add such one for next versions.
