Configure Idea config + system paths


When users have their home directory on the network, it's pretty bad for the IDE performance.

Is there a way to configure the system and config paths to be somewhere else, at installation time?

I know that I can modify the file, but I would love to have a way to install the IDE (with a command line, for example) that would configure the paths automatically.

Thanks for your advice,



Editing is the only correct way to change config and system paths. You may write your own script that modifies this file.
