I'm using openSUSE Linux with KDE Plasma.
I'd like to set up two user accounts on the same machine, and have these two share part of the same Home folder.
In particular, I want to set up two user accounts that will be used only be me, a personal one and a work-related one; my concern is not to protect files from an account to the other, but to keep these two scopes separated.
I'd like each of these two accounts to share the basic system and desktop environments files and settings, in order to have a unified working environment, so if I change, I.E. some keyboard shortcuts or customize the way the system behaves, I don't have to do that twice. The settings that I'd like to be shared include applications related to the DE (Dolphin file manager, the terminal emulator).
I'd like to keep separated all the "user" files and applications that generally speaking don't fall under the "system" category. So, documents, pictures, etc.. but also the settings of programs like Digikam that don't natively support multiple user profiles.
I hope that all of this is clear. I can also settle on separate only the personal files and share all the settings (basically only the hidden files on the home folder).
Is it feasible to do so in a reasonable way? Or it will only result in a supreme mess?
