Yes, you're correct, that is an issue. We are considering a couple of
fixes for that as outlined below.

1. Merge khangman's frameworks branch to master, so it will be qt5/kf5
based for the upcoming release, This way khangman and kanagram (the
two applications that expect these files in kdeedu-data) will be able
to find them fine.
2. Make kdeedu-data install files into share/apps and modify
libkeduvocdocument to also look for the files there also. This way
whether 1 happens or not both applications will be able to find the
files just fine.

I'll make 2 happen now, then look at what's needed in khangman itself
to possibly do 1 above also by release, we'll see.
