Arrow fc6 konqueror opens pdf document in main konqueror pane

Hi all

Am running FC6 64bit with KDE and everything up2date. We mainly use kpdf to view pdf documents and it works fine.

When in konqueror if I double click on a pdf file it opens up in the main konqueror viewing pane and shows the document but I want it to launch kpdf and view it in kpdf, separate from konqueror. We end up right clicking it and "open with" kpdf to open it separately from Konqueror.

I have kpdf as file association under Control Center.

Actually just as a side note my better half complains when viewing photos in Konqueror, if she double clicks on one it also opens in the main Konqueror viewing pane instead of her prefered graphics viewing program.

Must be a tick box setting I am missing a presume.

Look forward to any help you can give me on this problem.

Arggh shit

I found it.

Konqueror, Settings, Configure Konqueror, File Associations, Application, pdf. Then click on the Embedding Tab. There are the choices. "Show file in embedded viewer", "Show file in separate viewer", etc.


Konqueror, Settings, Configure Konqueror, File Associations, and there on the right hand side at top is "Left Click Action" with two choices, show file in embedded viewer or show file in seaparate viewer.

Obviously I know how to fix the photo issue now.

Hope this helps someone anyways
