    Default weird konqueror behavior

    when i click on Support.desktop (and other requests for konqueror) konqueror starts launching an endless amount of windows. the bouncing konqueror icon by the mouse never stops. and my panel at the bottom is filled with what appears to be an endless amount of knoqueror windows.

    any suggestions on how to stop this?

    using openSuse 11.3, 64bit

    which KDE version are you using?

    has this always occurred, or did it start recently after you installed
    something? what?

    i don't see a "Support.desktop" in the menu for my konqueror, do you?

    or is it in the konqueror window pane as (maybe) a file or directory
    name...or on the page of some web site, or what?

    and, do this:
    - close all instances of konqueror
    - open a terminal and type in and enter konqueror
    - leave that terminal open
    - then, go to the just opened konqueror and find and click on
    "Support.desktop"
    - let it generate a few of the "endless amount of konqueror windows"
    then shut down the konqueror (if you can)
    - and, copy the contents of the terminal window and paste it back to
    this thread using the instructions here: http://goo.gl/i3wnr

    kde version = KDE: 4.4.4 (KDE 4.4.4) "release 2"

    i just installed this system on sunday (i moved from the 32 bit version). here is what i installed... picasa, chromium, vlc, kdenlive, skype, dosbox, apcupsd, google talk, nvidia drivers, dropbox ...i believe only dropbox, apcupsd, and chromium were running at the time (and nvidia drivers).

    "Support.desktop" is referring to the link that is on the desktop that goes to openSUSE 說明

    the konqueror window never actually opens up and when i go to show system activity konqueror does not appear in the list, it shows plasma working very hard (both cpu +75%).

    i tried your suggestion and konqueror opened normally and there was nothing shown in the terminal. i can try again but i now need to restart....

    thanks for the reply and help

    how did you 'move' from the 32 bit version....i mean, you were running
    32 bit openSUSE 11.3 with KDE4.4.4 and what steps did you take to get
    to the 64 bit version?


    > here is what i installed... picasa, chromium, vlc, kdenlive,

    were you running those in the 32 bit version also?

    > "Support.desktop" is referring to the link that is on the desktop


    ok, i think i understand better now: apparently there is an icon on
    your desktop that you should be able to click to go to some help
    documentation, right?

    was your openSUSE born with that link in the 32 bit version and then
    it was there again in the 64 bit version? [this is why i ask, HOW you
    'moved' from 32 to 64]

    so right click that icon and select "Properties", click to the
    "Application" tab, and copy paste what you find in the "Command" block..

    i think it might be "susehelp"

    yep, i think it is doing a loop somewhere..

    don't try it again..

    instead, when you find what is in the command block for that icon,
    open a terminal and do:

    Code:
    which susehelp
    if it is not "susehelp" substute in what it is, and return the output
    to this thread..

    how did you 'move' from the 32 bit version....
    i previously had 32bit version installed, downloaded 64bit live cd, and installed it through the installation process... but during installation it only formated "/" (/home is a different partition).

    were you running those in the 32 bit version also?
    yes, those apps were installed on the 32 bit installation.

    ok, i think i understand better now: apparently there is an icon on
    your desktop that you should be able to click to go to some help
    documentation, right?
    right.

    was your openSUSE born with that link in the 32 bit version and then
    it was there again in the 64 bit version? [this is why i ask, HOW you
    'moved' from 32 to 64]
    yes.

    so right click that icon and select "Properties", click to the
    "Application" tab, and copy paste what you find in the "Command" block..
    there is no "application" tab, but there is a url tab with this link...
    help.opensuse.org
    and you probably already know this but "which http://help.opensuse.org/" did not return anything

    here is some additional info... when i was in the process of right clicking on the icon and getting properties, i accidentally left clicked, which started the whole "loop" again, but during the "loop" it appears that there are some notifications from the task panel trying to surface (but i can't really read them because they only appear briefly and are not legible).

    update: i believe this is now resolved... i went into "personal settings" then "default applications" and noticed that the default browser was blank... i changed it to chromium and now i can not repeat this problem.

    so then i went back and made it blank again, but this time when clicking on Support.Desktop i got an error that it "could not find program %u"

    perhaps when installing the 64bit system there was an erroneous browser setting that was carried over from the 32bit system??? i did have chrome installed at one point on the 32bit installation, but then switched to chromium.

    ok, it was failing for not being able to find a default browser..
    good you found and solved the problem...

    i have no idea how the default browser got wiped out of your
    system...but, i guess it was done accidentally--i've not heard of this
    problem before..

    you might search the bugs data base and if you find an entry there
    where the default browser is lost, you might want to add your
    specifics to the mix, here: http://en.opensuse.org/Submitting_Bug_Reports
