     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,
          MIME types 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 UNIXr 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.
