Following up on old messages I had marked to look at later...
Thanks again, Kevin. I had several things in ~/.cache, the default for
$XDG_CACHE_HOME if it's unset, and after setting that var, all of them
switched to the location I pointed the variable at except for one:
yawp, the "yet another weather plasmoid". Unfortunately, it appears to
be hard-coded to use ~/.cache/yawp. =:^(
I was able to solve that using a symlink... which works to get the actual
cache all in the same spot... but doesn't get rid of the ugly .cache
entry in $HOME. =:^(
So I guess I figure out where it's coming from (I think kdelook), and
file a request with the author... and/or patch in my own path (easy
enough on gentoo, just drop the patchfile in a particular patch-dir and
the patch should be applied to updates automatically).
