MigratingProfiles

KMeleonWiki > Documentation > MigratingProfiles


By using an old profile with a new version of K-Meleon you might miss some of the new features. Compare your profile files with those available in C:\Program Files\K-Meleon\defaults\profile\ and do the needed adjustments.

For migrating from K-Meleon 0.7 to K-Meleon 0.8 these new features include LButton, MButton and RButton in accel.cfg, and DocumentImagePopup and FrameDocumentImagePopup in menus.cfg.

Backup your old K-Meleon profile

The profile files are normally located in:

C:\Program Files\K-Meleon\Profiles\[your name]\!!!!!!!!.slt

The following files can be backed up to tranfer your profile to a new install of K-Meleon. Do not try to transfer any other files. (and never mind if your profile doesn't have all of these files)

accel.cfg

bookmarks.html

cookperm.txt

macros.cfg

menus.cfg

opera.adr

Prefs.js

User.js

Other files that you should consider saving.

K-Meleon\Profiles\[your name]\!!!!!!!!.slt\Chrome\userContent.css

K-Meleon\Skins\[downloaded skins]

K-Meleon\plugins\[added plugins]
