Thread: Konqueror not working as file manager

  1. #1

    Default Konqueror not working as file manager

    Today I successfully upgraded from 42.2 to 42.3, only one problem so far: To my regret I am forced to use Dolphin for filemanagement, instead of the preferred Konqueror. Is Konqueror being killed off? Any workaround?

    Question: How did you upgrade? Can we see your repos?
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    between CODE tags, the # in the ribbon.

    BTW: Just checked my Leap 42.3, using Konqueror as a filemanager works fine here.
    And no, AFAIK Konqueror is not being killed.
    To the last question: Start konqueror from a terminal window ( type "konque" and hit TAB ) and have a look at the output.

    And what exactly is your problem?
    Just type a path (e.g. ~) into the address bar, or click on the small arrow next to the home page button and choose "Personal Folder" to switch to file management mode...
    Or click on personal folder in the introduction page.

    Btw, konqueror just embeds dolphin for filemanagement since 4.0.

    I think he means the sidebar is gone.

    Thanks guys! I used Konqueror as root with this command "kfmclient openProfile filemanagement" and had ticked the box "run as different user" - after upgrade to 42.3 nothing happens when tapping this shortcut. Yes, I used to have the sidebar with root folders. Yes I can run Konqueror and choose Home Folder, but don't get the sidebar.

    I upgraded by editing repositories 42.2 to 42.3 and applying zypper ref and zypper dup, here my present repositories:
    Code:
    krister@linux-vdju:~> zypper lr -d

    So Yes, I could redo the shortcut, but I will not get the sidebar, which I think is important.

    Repos are OK. The sidebar isn't there for me either, cannot get it through the menus.

    The sidebar has been removed.
    AFAIK they didn't manage to port it to KF5/Qt5 in time, because it still used Qt3 code.

    So it may return in later versions.

    PS:

    Profiles have been removed as well (I think they are considered to be obsolete), and therefore also the "openProfile" command line option.
    That's why it doesn't work.

    Change that to "kfmclient openURL" e.g., and it should open Konqueror in filemanagement mode (you may also specify a folder after 'openURL').

    Code:
    test@amiga:~> kfmclient --commands
    
    Syntax:
    
      kfmclient openURL 'url' ['mimetype']
                # Opens a window showing 'url'.
                #  'url' may be a relative path
                #   or file name, such as . or subdir/
                #   If 'url' is omitted, $HOME is used instead.
    
    
                # If 'mimetype' is specified, it will be used to determine the
                #   component that Konqueror should use. For instance, set it to
                #   text/html for a web page, to make it appear faster
    
    
      kfmclient newTab 'url' ['mimetype']
                # Same as above but opens a new tab with 'url' in an existing Konqueror
                #   window on the current active desktop if possible.

    thanks for clarifying.

    In my humble opinion Konqueror was the best Linux file manager, almost as useful as the Windows file manager or Windows explorer. Sad to see it depreciated.
