I’ve been a long time Kubuntu user, and I’m switching to Manjaro. I’ve just installed the latest version of KDE Manjaro, replacing my Kubuntu partition.
I had my /home on a different partition and I checked the “keep the same /home partition” (can’t remember the exact name ) during installation.
But it didn’t seem to work, and my /home is just on the manjaro system partition.
How could I tell Manjora to use my old /home partition? And would it screw up the whole kde config?
I’ve looked around but I can’t seem to find the relevant information about this…
You can use manual partitioning in the installer to explicitly set what partition to use as your root, and which one as your home – and which one is your EFI when applicable.
Just be careful not to format your home partition in order to keep its content!
Regarding KDE, Manjaro using (presumably) a later version, the configuration should update itself on the first run. You can make a backup of the configuration folder beforehand, just in case.
