I want to give someone else my settings and preferences for Kile (LaTeX editor). A quick googling would reveal where those settings are strored. Can askubuntu help me?

The settings of Kile (and probably most other KDE apps and KDE itself) are usually stored in the directory .kde/share/config.

To specifically answer your question, I think the settings of Kile are stored in .kde/share/config/kilerc.
