    Default How to get rid of the KDE3 konqueror under KDE4


    Strange issue.. installed kde4-konqueror caused I noticed that my
    konqueror looked like the old kde3 one.
    After the installation it doesn't show up in the launcher menu when
    searching for 'konqueror', didn't show up under browsers either.
    So I looked up where the file to start it was hiding in YaST software
    management.. it shows me
    :/usr/share/applications/kde4/konqbrowser.desktop. Add that entry
    manually to the launcher menu.. and it still starts up the KDE3 version.

    So I look up 'konq' in yast software management and uninstall
    everything that it lets me uninstall (that's everything besides
    kdebase4-libkonq and libkonq5 as Dolphin requires both of them, and I
    need a file manager).
    So with nearly everything konqueror uninstall I look up konqueror in
    the launcher menu and the KDE3 version still shows up... what gives? How
    do I get rid of it as it seems to prevent me from using the KDE4 version
    and even if it didn't, I've no need for 2 konquerors.

    This is what I currently have with the seemingly unremoveable KDE3
    version of konqueror that I'd like to get rid of.

    Hope we're on the same page here. I have

    > dean@linux:~> rpm -qa |grep konqueror
    > kde4-konqueror-plugins-lang-4.1.3-27.13
    > kde4-konqueror-plugins-4.1.3-27.13
    > kde4-konqueror-4.1.3-58.2
    > kdeaddons3-konqueror-3.5.10-5.6
    >


    If I wanted to get rid of konqueror 3.5.10-5.6 (dependencies
    notwithstanding), I could do

    rpm -e kdeaddons3-konqueror

    or use the yast software manager to do the same.

    Just fired up KDE4.2 (I still prefer KDE3) and opened a console. If I
    launch konqueror from CLI, I get the KDE4 version. If I do

    cd /opt/kde3/bin/
    konqueror

    then the KDE3 version launches (as expected).

    But kdeaddons3-konqueror isn't installed anyway according to YAST - at least
    not on my system.

    Oh bother! Now my task bar has vanished again. Ctrl-alt-del here we come.

    Here we are again after removing .kde4 and trying to get everything I needed
    back in. Fingers crossed!

    Anyway, I found that the KDE3 version of Konqueror is embedded in the KDE3
    base system. That's why YAST can't find it on a search for "Konqueror".

    What I did was to go into YAST, select "patterns" and remove the KDE3 base
    system! A bit drastic and a few things got lost along the roadside, such as
    Amarok, but I'll wait to see if I need any of it. I checked the "Kickoff
    Application Launcher" and found that the KDE3 versions of Konqueror had
    gone. I then tried un-installing and then re-installing the KDE4 version but
    it didn't get put in the menu.

    It seemed the only way to get KDE4 Konqueror in KAL was to to it by hand.
    The command for the KDE3 version was "kfmclient openProfile filemanagement".
    Using this same command launched the KDE4 version. I note that the command
    for the super-user mode is "konqueror -profile filemanagement". As far as I
    can see these commands do the same thing - but someone more knowledgeable
    about the arcane wonders of Linux commands than me may say different - and
    the only thing making it suoer-user is that in the "advanced" tab, "run as a
    different user" is ticked.

    If you don't want the fun and games I've had, I suspect that using "menu
    edit" for KAL and adding Konqueror with the full route specifiedin the
    command. I haven't tried this myself. Didn't think I'd have as much fun as
    dumping KDE3. ;-)
