41 <para>When starting a new version of <application>KDE</application> for the
42 first time, problems have been observed with the
43 <application>KDE</application> menu system when a user has established a
44 configuration with a previous version. To correct this, one technique that
45 works is to rename the existing home directory and create a new one with
46 <emphasis>only</emphasis> an <filename>~/.xinitrc</filename> file. You
47 should also delete the directories <filename
48 class='directory'>/tmp/kde-<replaceable>userid</replaceable></filename>,
49 <filename
50 class='directory'>/tmp/ksocket-<replaceable>userid</replaceable></filename>,
51 and <filename
52 class='directory'>/var/tmp/kdecache-<replaceable>userid</replaceable></filename>.
53 Then log out and log in again to ensure the new directory is in use. Now,
54 starting <application>KDE</application> will rebuild the menus.</para>
55
56 <para>Move or copy any needed files from the old home directory to the
57 new one. Do not move or copy the old <application>KDE</application>
58 configuration files:
59 <filename class='directory'>.kde</filename>,
60 <filename>.kderc</filename>,
61 <filename class='directory'>.fonts.cache-1</filename>,
62 <filename class='directory'>.local</filename>,
63 <filename class='directory'>.qt</filename>,
64 <filename class='directory'>.mcop</filename>,
65 <filename>.DCOPserver*</filename>,
66 and <filename class='directory'>Desktop</filename>.</para>
67
68 <para>This technique may need to be repeated after adding additional
69 optional packages.</para>
70 </note>

72 <para>At this point you can bring up <application>KDE</application> with:</para>
