OK after 6 months kstars finally works as it should. Now I was wondering if I can save my profile of ekos with all the trimmings in 1 file so that after a crash, I can install kstars again and then put the saft file back so that everything runs as before.

There are three directories that contain all of KStars, Ekos and INDI configuration files:
Beware because the first directory contains also all logs and really large files like the USNO star catalog data file (about 2 Gb) if you decide to install that. The second directory contains more than just KStars files and since the files in there only have settings for window sizes and locations you can safely omit it.
All three are directories in the home dir of the user using KStars.
