Open Dolphin, split the window, one side go to your $HOME folder, the other go to your backup folder. Make sure that you are not looking at the hidden files then select everything in your home folder, drag and drop it to the backup folder, choose copy.
In your home folder press Alt-. (alt dot) to show the hidden files/folders. Copy all you want to over to the backup location such as .cups, .mozilla, .libreoffice, .minecraft, .openbazzar, .steam, .wine - whatever you do not want lost. The .bash* files are also usually useful to save.

The reason for all this is I want to set up my /home partition from scratch without kubuntu using previous definitions. So I need a way of backing up only data, ALL my data (and of course restoring it).
