NAME

       kdeinit5 - Launcher for applications built with kdeinit support, and
       for KIO slaves.

SYNOPSIS

       kdeinit5 [--help] [[--no-fork] | [--no-kded] | [--suicide]]
                [[+programs] | [programs]]

DESCRIPTION

       kdeinit5 is a process launcher somewhat similar to the famous init used
       for booting UNIX. It executes KDE programs and kdeinit loadable modules
       (KLMs) starting them more efficiently.

       Using kdeinit5 to launch KDE applications makes starting a typical KDE
       application a couple times faster and reduces memory consumption by a
       substantial amount.

       kdeinit5 is linked against all libraries a standard KDE application
       needs. With this technique, starting an application becomes much faster
       because now only the application itself needs to be linked whereas
       otherwise both the application as well as all the libraries it uses
       need to be linked.

DISADVANTAGES

       The process name of applications started via kdeinit5 is "kdeinit5".
       This problem can be corrected to a degree by changing the application
       name as shown by ps. However, applications like killall will only see
       kdeinit5 as the process name. To workaround this, use kdekillall (from
       kdesdk/scripts) for applications started via kdeinit5.

OPTIONS

       --help
           Show help about options

       --no-fork
           Do not fork, i.e. do not exit until all the executed programs ends

       --no-kded
           Do not start kded

       --suicide
           Terminate when no KDE applications are left running

       +programs
           runs the programs handling requests

       programs
           runs the programs without handling requests

USAGE

       A standard way to run this program is by simply specifying the
       following command at the prompt kdeinit5 program or kdeinit5 +program

FILES

       /tmp/kde-$USER/kdeinit5_$INSTANCE
           ...

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       $HOME
           Specifies the home directory of the current user

       $KDE_HOME_READONLY
           Specifies if the home directory of the current user is read only

       $KDE_IS_PRELINKED
           If set, tells kdeinit5 that the KDE programs are pre-linked.

           (Prelinking is a process that allows you to speed up the process of
           dynamic linking.)

       $KDE_DISPLAY
           If set, tells kdeinit5 that it is running on a KDE desktop.
