Host-specific Directories

There are three host-specific directories that are usually symlinked to other locations. If the directories do not already exist, the following symlinks and directories will be created using the lnusertemp utility:

$ KDEHOME /socket-$ HOSTNAME

Usually /tmp/ksocket-$ USER /, this is used for various UNIX� sockets.

$ KDEHOME /tmp-$ HOSTNAME

Usually /tmp/kde-$ USER /, this is used for temporary files.

$ KDEHOME /cache-$ HOSTNAME

Usually /var/tmp/kdecache-$ USER /, this is used for cached files.

Since both /tmp and /var/tmp are world writable, there is a possibility that one of the above directories already exists but is owned by another user. In that case the lnusertemp utility will create a new directory with an alternative name and link to that instead.
