2 Simple Questions


(I am using Mandrake 10 with the KDE desktop.)

I have researched for HOURS but cannot find the answer to these 2 simple questions:

1. I can see my home network with the terminal command "/usr/bin/smbclient -L host" so I know it's there, but damn if I can find the KDE (or Konqueror) equivalent of WinXP's "My Network Places"!!! I'd like to see a graphical display of my home network but I don't know how. (I'd like to access it from the KDE desktop also, of course).

2. Having tried both, I prefer KDE to GNOME. However, I like Nautilus better as a file manager than Konqueror. I am able to access Nautilus from KDE but I'd like to make it the DEFAULT file manager, instead of Konqueror. Is there a way to do this?

Any help would be much appreciated...

- Jack

1) should be able to type smb://hostname/ in konqueror and it will show available shares (given you provide proper credentials, of course)

2) never tried changing default filemanager, i personally use CLI for as much as possible , sorry

hope this helps...
