50<para>If you prefer installing <acronym>KDE</acronym> in
51<filename class="directory">/opt</filename>
52one trick to avoid the above configuration changes every time you
53install the new version is to replace
54<filename class="directory">/opt/kde-&kde-version;</filename>
55with <filename class="directory">/opt/kde</filename> and to create a symlink from
56<filename class="directory">/opt/kde-&kde-version;</filename>
57to <filename class="directory">/opt/kde</filename>.</para>
