Description Dik Takken 2006-08-06 01:06:47 UTC
Version:           1.5.1 (using KDE KDE 3.5.3)
OS:                Linux

Krita always dumps its swap data in /tmp/kde-$USER, but that might not always be the place where the most free diskspace is. Please allow the user to select a different swap directory.

also the option to delete all swaps. 

(thats not krita-specific) Every time i dig into temp dirs there are old files in it, and I really don't know if I could just rm them save.

Make the location of the swapfile configurable

I do not intend to expose this from the settings gui, it's too advanced
for that. Advanced users can use the "swaplocation" entry in kritarc
to move the swapfiles out of the temp dir.

For the swapfile, we now use KTemporaryFile instead of QTemporaryFile
since we're still a KDE application.
