What doe you mean by "desktop manager"? If you mean window manager, it
is definitely not true. For instance, fvwm2 uses ~/.fvwm/config.

If you mean desktop environments, it is also not true. According to
their respective documentations, KDE uses ~/.kde be default, and Gnome
uses ~/.gconf, ~/.gnome2 and ~/.local/share.
