kdeinit4 - KDE process launcher.


   kdeinit4 [--help] [[--no-fork] | [--no-kded] | [--suicide]]
            [[+programs] | [programs]]


   kdeinit4 is a process launcher somewhat similar to the famous init used
   for booting UNIX. It executes KDE programs and kdeinit loadable modules
   (KLMs) starting them more efficiently.

   Using kdeinit4 to launch KDE applications makes starting a typical KDE
   application a couple times faster and reduces memory consumption by a
   substantial amount.

   kdeinit4 is linked against all libraries a standard KDE application
   needs. With this technique, starting an application becomes much faster
   because now only the application itself needs to be linked whereas
   otherwise both the application as well as all the libaries it uses need
   to be linked.


   The process name of applications started via kdeinit4 is "kdeinit4".
   This problem can be corrected to a degree by changing the application
   name as shown by ps. However, applications like killall will only see
   kdeinit4 as the process name. To workaround this, use kdekillall (from
   kdesdk/scripts) for applications started via kdeinit4.


       Show help about options

       Do not fork, i.e. do not exit until all the executed programs ends

       Do not start kded

       Terminate when no KDE applications are left running

       runs the programs handling requests

       runs the programs without handling requests


   A standard way to run this program is by simply specifying the
   following command at the prompt kdeinit4 program or kdeinit4 +program




       Specifies the home directory of the current user

       Specifies if the home directory of the current user is read only

       If set, tells kdeinit4 that the KDE programs are pre-linked.

       (Prelinking is a process that allows you to speed up the process of
       dynamic linking.)

       If set, tells kdeinit4 that it is running on a KDE desktop.
