I'm running KDE 4.5 on a debian sid system.

Files are beginning to pile up (650MiB) in my /.kde/tmp-localhost directory and I want to get rid of all of them or at least some of the older ones.

I can't find a way in System-Settings to clear out these files. So is it OK to manually delete them or does anyone know a method of clearing them automatically say at shutdown?

those should be removed automatically at shutdown, you might want to try to find out why they aren't, maybe it's a glitch in the experimental 4.5?

In any case, you can dump them. all I see in there are log files. I do see one binary called ksyscoca, make sure of what you're deleting before you remove it, but any log file should be fine to delete, .log that is.

techAdmin: thank you for your reply.

From some googling AFAICT there is no general way of controlling the files in /home/<user>/.kde/tmp-localhost. Similarly, and unlike KDE 3.5, there doesn't appear to be a convenient way to delete thumbnails.

Also I must apologies for posting my version of KDE as 4.5. This is a typo as my KDE version is actually version 4.4.5.
