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
Hope that makes sense and helps,
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.

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
Thank you for the ‘default application’ thing…
I also figured out that i can put an ‘icon’ in the ‘panel’ and just call my saved ‘profile’.
There are many ways to add an app icon to the ‘taskbar’, but lets go with launcher>app>right click>Add to Panel…
Now right click on icon, icon settings> application tab>command (dialog box) I put this:
kfmclient openProfile FileMgrLandis...
Works Great… patt on the back!
Again, Thanks for your input, all!
