I want to copy the KDE "root" user account over to another user and want
to make certain that I don't lose anything important. Is the following

While logged in as "root" user:

Open terminal window and type following commands:
su userAcct
cp /root/.kde2 /home/userAcct
cp /root/Mail /home/userAcct
cp /root/KDesktop /home/userAcct

What exactly are you trying to save from the root account?

I think you want to use the cp -R option to pick up all the subdirectories
in your copies. Also, don't forget to change the ownership of the files
you copy when you are done.


Sorry, typed too quickly, should be "cp -r src dest". Actually if I do a cp
-r with "su userAcct" logged into the terminal, the ownership should
transfer as "userAcct".

I want all email/konq settings.

Thank You,
