Changing default paths

The settings, caches and other files needed by KDE applications are stored in several default locations. Since these locations can collide when using multiple installations of KDE software side-by-side, we have added patches to make it possible to adapt those pathes. These changes had been (silently) introduced with KDE 4.8 and have gotten a major rework for the KDE 4.10 based applications.

A sample kde.conf looks like that:

 [KDE]
 KDEHOME=%APPDATA%\\KDE\\kde
 
 [XDG]
 XDG_DATA_HOME=%APPDATA%\\KDE\\kde\\data_home
 XDG_CONFIG_HOME=%APPDATA%\\KDE\\kde\\config_home
