20 <para>One option is to put <application>KDE</application> into the
21 <filename class='directory'>/usr</filename> hierarchy. This creates a
22 simpler setup but makes it more difficult to try multiple versions of
23 <application>KDE</application>.</para>

35
36 <para>If you are not installing <application>KDE</application> in
37 <filename class="directory">/usr</filename>, you will need to make some
38 additional configuration changes. Best practice is to add those to your
39 system or personal profile:</para>

41<screen><userinput>cat &gt; /etc/profile.d/kde.sh &lt;&lt; 'EOF'
42<literal># Begin /etc/profile.d/kde.sh

73 <para>Several KDE packages install files into D-Bus and polkit directories.
74 When installing KDE in a location other than <filename class="directory">/usr</filename>,
75 D-Bus and polkit need to find these files. The easiest way to achieve this is to create
76 the following symlinks (as the <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user):</para>
77
78<screen role="root"><userinput>install -d &kde-dir;/share &amp;&amp;
79ln -svf /usr/share/dbus-1 &kde-dir;/share &amp;&amp;
80ln -svf /usr/share/polkit-1 &kde-dir;/share</userinput></screen>
81
82 <tip>
83 <para>Sometimes, the installation paths are coded into installed files.
84 This is the reason why <filename class="directory">/opt/kde</filename>
85 is used as installation prefix instead of <filename
86 class="directory">/opt/kde-&kde-version;</filename>. After installing
87 <application>KDE</application>, you may rename the directory and create
88 a symlink:</para>
89
90<screen role="root"><userinput>mv /opt/kde{,-&kde-version;} &amp;&amp;
91ln -svf kde-&kde-version; /opt/kde</userinput></screen>
92
93 <para>Later on, you may want to install other versions of
94 <application>KDE</application>. To do that, just remove the symlink and
95 use <filename class="directory">/opt/kde</filename> as the prefix again
96 (<application>KDE</application> must not be started). Which version of
97 <application>KDE</application> you use depends only on where the symlink
98 points to. No other reconfiguration will be needed.</para>
