Thread: How can I export favorites from Konqueror?

    Default How can I export favorites from Konqueror?

    Title pretty much says it all- I would like to know how to export my favorites from Konqueror. I am getting ready to switch over to a new machine and need to back up my files before I do.

    Thanks for your time.

    What is this "favorites"? I see no "favorites" on Konqueror menu! I find
    no "favorites" anywhere in Konqueror help files!

    If you mean bookmarks have you searched the KDE Help for bookmarks?

    Maybe this works: Click in Konqueror menu Bookmarks > Edit Bookmarks > File >
    Export where you can export to another format, save and carry that to your new
    machine, then Bookmarks > Edit Bookmarks > File > Import and stuff the saved
    bookmarks into your new machine.

    My Bad- You have to cut a guy some slack, after years of being a prisoner of the Borg Collective (Windows), it takes awhile to become a free thinker! Thanks for the advice. I'll give it a shot.

    Just a hint: you could also backup your entire ~/.kde, then all KDE-settings could be exported at once by simply copying it to the new directory. You could even backup the entire /home with all its settings (not recommended when switching to another distribution, though), that saves a lot of work.

    When doing so, take care to backup to a unixoid filesystem (ext3, reiser etc.), as FAT or NTFS do not know anything about Linux' access rights management (←hope I put that right) or at least pack them into a .tar-File before doing so.

    Nothing to be sorry for -- most new users call them favorites. In my country they call them favourites. After all, it's a real world out there and "favourites" is part of the common usage.
