Easy in KDE
If you're using KDE then this is simple.
Step 1: create Konqueror view profile
In konqueror, create a view profile by setting up a window to how you want it to appear when you click on the link we are going to make. You will need to set View > Show Hidden Files, and navigate to the directory that you want to open on.
Step 2: save view profile
Click Setting, then Save View Profile "xxx". give it a name like custom1.
Step 3: create the desktop icon
On the desktop, right-click and go to Create New > File > Link to Application.
In the General tab, give the link a name and pick an icon.
In the Application tab, type "konqueror --profile xxx " into the Command, replacing xxx with the name of your new profiile.
If you want to know more about running konqueror from the command line, type "konqueror --help-all" into a console.
Hope this helps
