    Default desktop folder/directory opens with Konq, not Dolphin

    Directories on my desktop open with Konqueror. In order to open them with Dolphin by default:

    Open Konqueror, Settings, Cofigure Konq. Go to "File associations" search for "directory". Go down to "inode" and move Dolphin to the top of the list.

    or simply use KDE4 System Settings -> DefaultApplications and set Dolphin as default file manager

    that's weird. Which version of KDE4 are you using? I have 4.2 and have that option. Maybe it is part of a package( I doubt that) such as kde4-addons or similar?

    I'm on default KDE 4.1 (suse 11.1). how is 4.2 going for you? Buggy? I didn't want to install it in case my laptop goes to *****. 4.2 is in "unstable" repo - that word makes me nervous :S

    I've been running kde 4.2 since the very first rc1. It didnt't crashed a single time so far so it's very stable for me. The only problem I had is where they broke something in the plasma config a while back so a lot of people had to delete their .kde4 directory or plasmarc files. Another minor problem I currently have is some kind of mouse stuttering I get, which isn't present in other Dekstop Environments... Overall though, kde 4.2 is much improved and is stable. I'd recommend to upgrade, but it's your decision

    Do you have problems with windows not opening correctly (incorrect dimensions, very squashed vertically)? This was common when 11.1 came out.

    How did you perform upgrade?
    yast, add kde4-unstable repo, upgrade 'all' packages?

    It is asking me to delete powerdevil.... and it is over 300MB....

    Yeah from yast, but I use the Factory repos, not unstable ones. As for powerdevil, you can uninstall it, install 4.2 and install powerdevil back
