Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Thanks, but I tried that already. I went to the Control Center and tried to restore all the file associations to prior values.
However, I can't find a reason for Konqueror to show only the HTML source code instead of the web pages, just after I changed an association in ONE OF THE AUDIO FILE TYPES (mp3). Even though I deleted that change, Konqueror keeps not showing the web pages.
I will try deleting the file associations configuration file, and then reinstalling Konqueror. I'll let you know tonight.
If you think it's a bad plan, please let me know, and thanks again.
I tried the same sequence as another regular user:
I went to Control Center->File Associations->Audio->mp3->Embedded
I chose to Add KHTML
Then I closed Control Center
Then again, on Konqueror, it started to show only the html source, not the Web pages as such.
Then I went back to Control Center, and I found:
1. Under Audio->mp3->Embedded, the KHTML I had added is not there any more (it did not stick)
2. Under Text->html, there is only Advanced text editor, and NOT KHTML any more (which was the default)
3. Whichever file type I choose, when the Embedded type is active, KHTML is not an option any more. It just vanished from the "Add" list.
I feel stuck here. There must be a way to make KHTML available so in the Add list (Control Center->File Associations->(whichever type)->Embedded).
Please help me out, oh wise ones. There has to be a way to restore Konqueror's defaults!
After the sequence described on my prior posting, the MIME options and the Add options for Embedded files should not get messed up like that; that should not happen. Maybe on a newer version of KDE (mine is 3.1) there is not this problem any more.
I tried all the recipes from similar postings (not that there are that many anyway), except for deleting all the files under .KDE/
I've been hesitant to do it because I would probably loose my configurations and other data.
Maybe if I delete share/mimelnk and then reinstall KDE I'll get the default MIME settings. I'll try that and post. If there is any better idea, please post it (thanks).

Just logout and back in as another user. Then su to your regular home directory and rename .kde to something like .kde.backup. Then logout and login as regular user. You will have lost all your kde settings but if you need any data it will still be in your .ked.backup directory for you to cut and paste back.
