Thread: Copy kde config across multiple computers without bringing "computer specific" settings?

  1. #1

    Default Copy kde config across multiple computers without bringing "computer specific" settings?

    Running Linux 3.1.10-1.16-desktop x86_64, openSUSE 12.1 (x86_64), KDE:4.7.2 (4.7.2) "release 5".

    Goal reduce repetitive actions by copying "pertinent" KDE config across multiple computers so I don't have recreate my desktop 3 times on separate computers for every new build release like 12.2. Created a batch file that I store on dropbox that basically copy's "pertinent " configs like "keyboard" shortcuts and "activity manager" shortcuts. Then I goto other computer and run another batch file which basically copies in reverse to pertinent location on destination computer.

    Problem: KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS ARE GOOD however when copying configs for activity manager it is copying TOO much data and I'm not wise enough to pick out what I need.

    Here is sample batch file
    #!/bin/bash
    #COPY Keyboard shortcuts
    /bin/cp /home/tom/.kde4/share/config/kglobalshortcutsrc /home/tom/Dropbox/keyboard/kglobalshortcutsrc
    /bin/cp /home/tom/.kde4/share/config/khotkeysrc /home/tom/Dropbox/keyboard/khotkeysrc


    #COPY Activity Manager Shortcuts
    /bin/cp /home/tom/.kde4/share/config/activitymanagerrc /home/tom/Dropbox/keyboard/activitymanagerrc
    /bin/cp /home/tom/.kde4/share/config/plasma-desktoprc /home/tom/Dropbox/keyboard/plasma-desktoprc
    /bin/cp /home/tom/.kde4/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc /home/tom/Dropbox/keyboard/plasma-desktop-appletsrc

    Thanks Tom

    Can you next time please use CODE tags around computer text: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/i...ags-guide.html
    Thus we can better see what is your story and what are the computer facts (and there are many more advantages).
