Ubuntu :: Change File Browser To Konqueror From Whatever The Default?

Jun 27, 2010

Somehow i managed to change my file browser to Konqueror from whatever the default is ( i haven't managed to find the name). Now when I open my home folder it opens with Konqueror.

Interestingly enough if I open the computer that opens up simply in file browser. Does anyone know how to change back to the default as I prefer the look of it to Konqueror.

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Change Default Browser In Thunderbird

Jun 14, 2010

I've been using Thunderbird ( with html attachments opening in Firefox.I just installed the new Chrome browser (5.0.375.70) and like it very much, enough so that I decided to switch from Firefox now that the Add-Ons I like are available for Chrome (Lastpass, Adblock, AutoPager). I've made Chrome the default browser in KDE's "Configure Desktop>Default Applications", but html attachments in Thunderbird still open in Firefox.I've tried most of the fixes offered on this and other forums as well as those offered by Mozilla's various help files, but nothing works. Most suggestions refer to fixes for 1.x versions of Thunderbird and no longer can be used.I just checked another OpenSUSE 11.2 PC with the newer 3.04 version of T'bird and saw no solution there either.

General :: Installing Konqueror Web Browser On Gnome?

Mar 11, 2011

I am new to linux and don't know much about it. I am currently taking a on-line class on it and seem to get stuck from time to time. I have been trying to install Konqueror on my systems. I have installed the KDEBASE3-3.5.10. However nothing shows up on my menus in GNOME. According to what I have read you can use this program on either of the GUI's. Not sure what details are needed, but below are some.

1) Quad core AMD Processor
2) Fedora 13
3) Kernel Linux
4) Using Gnome GUI.

Slackware :: Make Konqueror A Viable Web Browser?

Nov 12, 2010

I've finally got Konqueror working well enough to uninstall Firefox. The problem has been KHTML, which has big problems rendering modern web content with heavy scripting. a team of developers has been working on creating a webkit rendering engine as a modular Kpart for Konqueror. Kwebkit will probably be included with KDE 4.6, but for the moment it's something you have to install yourself. Here's what I did. First of all, these steps were all performed on a -current64 box with Alien Bob's KDE 4.5.3 package [URL] installed. I started out by installing kwebkitpart using the package available here: [URL]

At this point you can use kwebkit by launching Konqueror, going into View > View Mode and selecting Kwebkit. Trouble is, it's not going to be stable... Konqueror will crash constantly. In order to achieve stability you have to install QT4.7 or higher.

You can get the latest QT (4.7.1) here: [URL] You don't need the complete development environment; just get the framework. I'm assuming here that you have the Slackware source tree somewhere on your hard drive (mine is in /opt). You'll find QT in the /l directory. Save the existing source code somewhere else and put the code you just downloaded in it's place. Because the new source code has a different name you'll have to modify the script accordingly. I modified this line:


if [ -r $CWD/qt-$VERSION.tar.gz ]; then
tar xvf $CWD/qt-$VERSION.tar.gz || exit 1


if [ -r $CWD/qt-$VERSION-opensource-src-4.7.1.tar.gz ]; then
tar xvf $CWD/qt-$VERSION-opensource-src-4.7.1.tar.gz || exit 1


cd qt-$VERSION || exit 1


cd qt-$VERSION-opensource-src-4.7.1 || exit 1

By the way, I dropped into init 1 before performing the build:


init 1

I'm not sure that's really necessary, but I like to do that before doing anything that directly affects the GUI. Anyway, I then just ran the Slackbuild:



It took a long time. After it builds you can go into pkgtool and uninstall the previous version of qt. Then reboot your box. I rebooted into init 3 so I'd have a working terminal if something went wrong with the new version of qt. But no prob; I booted into the terminal, logged in, startx and no sweat.

Ubuntu :: Change Default File Permissions?

Jul 3, 2011

my dad has been using Ubuntu for a few weeks now and likes it, however he's having some issues regarding read-only files. He's a doctor and frequently has to download word files to edit, however they always download as a read-only file. While this isn't particularly difficult to do, he finds doing it tiresome and because he isn't the most proficient PC user, may have difficulty with it when I return to school after the summer. I was hoping that there's some way to change the default settings so that all files downloaded are writeable.

Additionally, he has a number CD-RWs which he both retrieves files from and stores them to, however when trying to access these CDs he is told that they are read-only. Right clicking on the CD and trying to change the access permissions doesn't work (says that permissions can't be changed because the disc is read-only).

Ubuntu :: Change The Default File Manager In GNOME?

Dec 13, 2010

How can I change the default file manager in GNOME? I've got these notes but neither methods work:

Change under 'Session control' in 'Ubuntu Tweak'
Delete nautilus and type in pcmanfm or another file manager such as thunar
Quit ubuntu-tweak



gksu gedit /usr/share/applications/nautilus-folder-*handler.desktop

Then replace 'nautilus --no-desktop %U' to whatever you like. Example: pcmanfm %U

Save, logout & login

Update: This works. Why does the Ubuntu Tweak method not work though?


sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/nautilus-folder-*handler.desktop

Fedora :: Konqueror Default View - Embedded Text Editor Mode

Jan 22, 2010

Everytime I open Konqueror, it opens in "Embedded Text Editor" mode . So if I open it then click on a bookmark, it opens in edit mode. I can select View->View Mode->khtml and then the page displays properly. If I click on a link from that page, it displays properly. If I open a new tab, it is back to edit mode. If I open konqueror from konsole, it has the same behavior. I have removed all files under ~/.kde that mention konqueror, kong_* or kfmclient.

I checked the menu entry for Konqueror, and it is "kfmclient openProfile web browsing". I have set the view mode properly, then manually saved the profile in Konqueror. I have checked the system settings file associations, and the konqueror entry has the same application command (kfmclient) as the kde menu entry. Does anyone know how to make the view mode "stick" for Konqueror such that when clicking on html urls or selecting bookmarks causes Konqueror to display properly?

F12 x86_64, latest updates (4.3.4-1).

Fedora :: Cannot Change Default Applications Or File Associations

Jun 15, 2011

I recently upgraded to Fedora 15 and am super-happy with it. Unfortunately, I have a minor issue that I haven't yet figured out how to fix: I can't change the default applications or the file type associations. For instance, I'd like to set Chromium as my default browser. When I first login, I tell it to set itself as default. But after I end my session and log back it, Firefox is back to being the default browser.

I have the same issues when trying to change what applications open filetypes. .rtf files have been opening in Wordpad in Wine. When I try to change it to Writer through the "Open with" dialog, it retains the change for that session but resets after I log out. I actually ended up having to uninstall Calibre because it was opening .odt files instead of LibreOffice and I couldn't change it permanently.

OpenSUSE :: Change Default Permissions For New File Created With Dolphin?

owner: rwx
group: r
other: r

I would like to change this default to:

owner: rwx
group: rw
other: -

I tried changing fstab, but umask and guid are not supported mount options for ext4. What can I do?

Note: I know I can do a chmod, but I don't want to do this again and again for every new file I create.

Ubuntu :: Iron Browser As Default?

Jun 11, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 running on HP Compaq nx9600 laptop

I have a question re: Iron web browser. I downloaded the the latest iron-linux-32.gz

I unzipped the package to /opt/iron-linux-32 and I can run the browser with no problem from the command line or from the gui. This is good.

However, how can I add Iron to the list of applicable browsers so that I can tell the OS to use Iron and not Firefox as default browser? Only Firefox is in the list of preferred applications.

Ubuntu :: Get Firefox As The Default Browser

Dec 28, 2010

I tried Chrome, but I still like Firefox better. I can't figure out how to get Firefox back as the default browser. When I go to Preferences --> Prefered Applications, web browser is set to Firefox.

I found this post...[url]

They said to run this command...


Tried that and it didn't help either. When clicking on link icons on my desktop, they open up in Chrome. Chrome says something to the extent "chrome is not your default browser to open links with. Do you want to make it?" I selected No and checked the box to not show it again. (That's why the above is not exactly what it said.) Kind of funny it said that yet it still opened up with Chrome and not Firefox.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Set Firefox To Be Default Browser In 10.10

Mar 27, 2011

I cannot set Firefox to be my default browser in Ubuntu 10.10. It used to be the default until I installed Chromium last year. Since then, Ubuntu Software Center, LibreOffice, EverNote (through Wine) and probably other apps open links in Chromium instead of Firefox.

I tried several solutions to no avail :

- System > Preferences > Preferred Applications : Web Browser = Firefox I tried with the custom command too : "firefox %s" => still opens Chromium.

- Firefox internal preferences : firefox = default

- Chromium internal preferences : chromium is NOT the default

- stuff like "sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser" set to firefox => another fail

- uninstalling Chromium : that works, Firefox opens all the links. Obviously it is not the desired solution as I want to use Chromium too.

- in Gnome Configuration Editor, there are no mention of chromium and /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http/command = firefox %s
