Oh for a better desktop! This is an issue that keeps on coming up - Kde trying to use Konqueror for everything.
The latest manifestation comes from a hyperlink in an OpenOffice spreadsheet to a .wav file. It either plays the sound or invokes the associated player in Windows and in a non-kde Linux system.
I've added %u to the command line in the file association and selected "Show file in embedded viewer", to no avail. The string %u keeps disappearing because Kde does not like to retain file association settings.
When I click on the link, Konqueror opens, then crashes, presumably because it isn't designed to play a sound file. From backtrace:
This backtrace appears to be of no use.
This is probably because your packages are built in a way which prevents creation of proper backtraces, or the stack frame was seriously corrupted in the crash.
(no debugging symbols found)
Using host libthread_db library "/lib/tls/libthread_db.so.1".
Does anyone know how to stop Konqueror getting in the way?
