How can I monitor in real time, which files an application reads and writes to while it is running? In my particular case I want to monitor korganizer.


So many ways, see the man pages for each of these:

Start the program under strace, and use strace options to only see the file operations you care about.

Download the source for installwatch, and adapt.

Repeated lsof -c korganizer.
