Embedding Compressed Files in Konqueror (Elyssa KDE CE Live)

Postby Doryforos on Sun Mar 01, 2009 6:07 pm

Hello Forum!

From the Kubuntu FAQ
(http://www.kubuntu.org/faq#defaultkonq)

Q: How do I change Konqueror back to the default KDE profiles?

A: Kubuntu comes with a simplified Konqueror profile to make things more
use friendly compared to default KDE. To get back to the default KDE
profiles:
Code: Select all
sudo rm -r /usr/share/kubuntu-default-settings/kde-profile/default/share/apps/konqueror

[this one not needed in gutsy]
Code: Select all
sudo cp /usr/share/apps/konqueror/konqueror-orig.rc /usr/share/apps/konqueror/konqueror.rc

To enable Konqueror to open tar and zip files:
Code: Select all
sudo rm -r /usr/share/kubuntu-default-settings/kde-profile/default/share/mimelnk/application/


I have done this in Elyssa KDE CE Live CD, but it doesn't work.

I have also searched the forum, for "embed konqueror" and "kubuntu-default-settings", without success -- the search function cancels word(s) of my query, as it deems them too common to construct a good query.

Any suggestions?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Well that is not Kubuntu but the folders you refer to exists
It is possible that this needs a reboot which of course is not possible on the live CD

Thanks for replying.

No, it doesn't need a reboot for Kubuntu.

But, anyway, this is not standard Konqueror behaviour, and there must be a way to revert things to normal, since they have been obviously altered from normal.

It would be nice if somebody came up with a solution...

Konqueror's normal (default) behaviour is:

When a .tar.gz or a .tar.bz2 or a .zip archive is double-clicked, and "Show file in embedded viewer" is set for these file types in KDE Control Centre | KDE Components | File Associations, then the archive is opened inside Konqueror, and the URL "tar:/" or "zip:/" is shown in the location bar (in other words, the contents of the archives can be seen in Konqueror's right pane, with folders and normal navigation -- as if a folder was being browsed).

But, in Linux Mint 5.0 (Elyssa KDE CE), when run from the live DVD, when such archives are double clicked, they are opened in ark.

I am simply trying to revert this to Konqueror's normal behaviour, i.e. I want the archives to open inside Konqueror, using the respective KIO Slaves, as described above -- this is what is expected anyway, since I have set these file types to be "shown in embedded viewer", as above; this is, BTW, exactly what happens, when I double-click on a plain text file (as I have set it to be so): it opens inside Konqueror, i.e. in the embedded viewer.
