NAME
       kded5 - KDE daemon - triggers Sycoca database updates when needed.

SYNOPSIS
       kded5 [--check]

DESCRIPTION
       kded5 consolidates several small	services in one	process. These are
       mostly D-Bus services provided by KDED modules, but it also manages
       sycoca (a binary	cache of servicetypes, mimetypes and services used by
       KService) and KConfig update scripts as needed.

       For sycoca, it monitors the directories containing .desktop files. When
       a file is added/removed,	it waits 5 seconds (in case of a series	of
       updates), and then launches kbuildsycoca5 to update the sycoca.

       For KConfig, it checks newly-installed update files, i.e. the *.upd
       files used to update configuration files	of users when the
       configuration file formats changes, and runs the	KConfig	update utility
       to perform the updates.

       Those tasks are also run	when kded5 is started to ensure	that the user
       configuration is	up to date.

       You do not normally need	to run kded5 directly; Plasma desktop sessions
       run it automatically, and it is started on demand when an application
       attempts	to use a D-Bus interface provided by it	or one of its modules.

OPTIONS
       --check
	   Check the sycoca database, updating it if necessary,	and exit.

CONFIGURATION
       kded5 can be configured with the	kded5rc	ini-style configuration	file.
       On Unix systems,	this can be found at $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/kded5rc; if
       $XDG_CONFIG_HOME	is not set, this defaults to ~/.config/kded5rc.

       Configuration file entries are read on-demand, so changes can be	made
       while kded5 is running. However,	all the	current	configuration options
       only really affect the startup behaviour	of kded5.

       The [General] section has the following options:

       CheckSycoca
	   Whether to update sycoca at startup (default: true).

       CheckUpdates
	   Whether to perform outstanding KConfig updates at startup (default:
	   true).

       CheckFileStamps
	   Whether to check file timestamps when performing the	initial	sycoca
	   update (default: true). See the documentation for kbuildsycoca5 for
	   more	details.

       DelayedCheck
	   Whether to delay the	initial	sycoca update until about a minute
	   after starting (default: false).

       Each module also	has a [Module-name] section in kded5rc,	where name is
       the name	of the module's	desktop	file without the .desktop extension.
       This contains an	autoload option	that specifies whether the module
       should be automatically loaded when kded5 is started (default: false).
       Note that this setting can also be changed via kded5's D-Bus interface.
