IIRC, you should not have two KDE sessions running at the same time
which share a "$HOME/.kde" directory. So, if you want users to share
files, you can do this with links or with a common directory for the
"Documents" directory (e.g. make a directory: "/home/users/Files" and
set the Documents path in all user accounts to point to it). In either
case, you need to have all of the users members of a group rather than
their having individual private groups.
