I just can't freak out enough to get people's attention and encourage caution
NEVER EVER DO THIS!!!
Of course that can be qualified by the following. Go ahead if you don't care
if you lose your...
* address book
* kmail filters
* desktop settings
* konqueror bookmarks
* session data
* ability to restore projects in Quanta should you encounter data loss
First off ~/.qt should not have an effect. Second you can isolate Quanta
settings in the following location, assuming that ~/.kde == $KDEHOME
./kde/share/config/ - look for quanta rc files
./kde/share/apps/quanta - your user install data area
Everything here is a trade off as to whether you nuke it or edit it, but many
people have years of data in ~/.kde that they would be more than a little
upset to lose. In fact you should never delete any of these. Just open a
mv .kde .kde~
Renaming a file or directory with ~ on the end means it's a backup and should
you find you lost crucial data it is right there for you to retrieve.
