10.0 KDE Configuration for Administrators

KDE is an extensively configurable desktop environment. In addition to being configurable for the individual user, administrators have the possibility to create global configurations. This allows system administrators to provide custom default settings for their environments. Settings can differ between groups and individual users. It is also possible to restrict which settings users can change. Additionally, access to parts of KDE or functions in KDE can be restricted for users and groups.

These global configurations allow administrators to, for example, set up a company-wide desktop following the corporate identity that the user is not allowed to change. It is also feasible to assign task-specific profiles with access to only a limited set of applications to different groups within an organization.

KDE reads and stores all configuration files in fixed directory trees called profiles. A profile is a collection of default settings and restrictions that can be applied to individual users or groups of users. These profiles are handled by the KIOSK framework. Use the graphical KIOSK Admin Tool to generate and manage profiles or manually edit and create files and structures in a profile.
