When a file is added/removed, it waits 5 seconds (in case of series of updates), and then launches kbuildsycoca. GENERIC OPTIONS

--check Check Sycoca database only once. USAGE
If kded4 is called without parameters and is already running, it shows the message: KDE Daemon (kded) already running. If kded4 is called with kded4 --check, then it updates the KDE sycoca using kbuildsycoca. SEE ALSO
