    Default HowTo: konqueror 4 - start as 'File Manager' ?

    is there a way, that you know of, to start konqueror 4 with the 'File Manager' profile and not as a browser?

    it, by the way is a Crappy 'File Manager'..
    no drag n drop, the folder list is lacking Huge, again, no draging.

    oh well, 'progress'.

    Start it with "konqueror ~landis" or whatever your username might be. Should automatically be in filemanager mode as soon as you navigate trough local files.

    It also supports drag and drop just fine, use it all the time as a ftp client to drag and drop files from and to my webhosts ftp server.

    Yes there is (and this may not be the only way..). I have a shortcut/icon in
    the Plasma Folder View (Desktop directory) for Konqueror that has the
    following as the start command on the Application tab: "kfmclient
    openProfile filemanagement"

    Hope that makes sense and helps,

    Cheers,

    Ron

    PS. Drag and drop works just fine for me - maybe we are not using the same
    methods though..? Maybe you are referring to trying to use D'n'D from the
    Folder list area on the left as opposed to the File-And-Folder list area on
    the right (the main window/tab) - if that is the case that is correct. As a
    potentially handy substitute may I suggest you try using the split window
    capabilities? I've found them to be very handy and it makes Konqueror a
    much better file management tool - kind of like the old split window
    capability of Norton Commander, only better because you can split left/right
    and/or top/bottom and any combo of both and each split can be pointed to a
    different location including ftp urls etc.

    Right click on the desktop, do Add Widgets and take a look at the
    Konqueror Profiles widget. Drag it onto your panel.

    Which KDE4 are you on? Looks like 4.1.3 and it's trouble. If so, update to KDE4 4.3.3 and you will be very happy.

    You need to pass a parameter to Konqueror for open the app like File Manager. I don't known now the parameter that you need to pass, but you can edit a konqueror desktop icon to see the parameter that make the konqueror one *#@# web browser ;-)

    I think that 'konqueror --help' will return to you avaliables parameters

    I don't understand why, the peoplo don't like the Konqueror for File Manager. GOD, please, tell me.

    The properties for the 'home' button on my KDE 3.5 shows the following
    as the command:
    kfmclient openProfile filemanagement

    Might try using that.
