I use Opera, Gaim, and XMMS on another username, but when I login to a different username none of my Gaim preferences, away messages, Opera toolbar settings, favorites, XMMS settings, or playlists are available. Everything is reset for that user.

Basically, what i am asking is how can i copy all of these settings from one user to another? and where do these programs generally store these configuration settings (so i know for future reference)? Thanks smile.gif

Open your file browser, and sewt it to diaply hiddenf iles (in konqueoror you can do this from the iew menu). Most programs have a hidden directory with the config data in, inside the users home directory

eg, my home directory is /home/richard and my xmms settings are in /home/richard/.xmms (the . makes it hidden)

Some KDE (and maybe gnome etc.) programs keep the config inside a general KDE folder, which is a bit harder to find things in.
