Konqueror opens multiple times


I am using konqueror when browsing through my files. When ever I click on a folder it opens up a new tab, soon I have six or seven instances of konqueror open. It used to all open in one.
My command for konqueror is:
"kfmclient openProfile filemanagement"

I would appreciate any help on solving this.

open konqueror. There is a menu called settings. On it's bottom, there is a configure Konqueror button. Click it with the LMB. A window opens. Now at the very top is a checkbox that says "open folders in separate windows". Uncheck it. Then click ok.

I believe you didn't miss my sarcastic tone, but you should at least try and look at the options before posting such straight-forward rtfm-deserving questions. If, in any case, that tickbox is unchecked and this is a bug, i apologise.

Wow. That really helped. Now, since I already tried that BEFORE I made this post and it did not work, are there any other suggestions from the peanut gallery? The checkbox is unchecked and all windows open in new windows. Any intelligent suggestions?

I'm sorry, but do you know how many stupid noob quiestions pop up here. I assumed this was one of them.

Did you compile konqueror from source? Try compiling it again using less optimization, it helped me sometimes. (for Blender). Heck, I didn't even use less optimization that time and it just worked, same source code and all. No more bugs. It might have been a different version of gcc, now that I think of it.

It could be a permission problem. Do your konqueror settings change for good when you close and reopen it? Find the konqueror's config file in your home dir and see what permissions it has.

Try and post some more behaviour, It really could be anything. Oh, and check up for "known bugs" in KDE bugzilla, it migth be version related.


I really am sorry dude...

P.S.: friendly advice: Next time, indicate that you have done research, tried the options and stuff. It takes just 1 sentence and it might inspire guys that have nothing better to do but to tell noobs how the copy command is called and such.

sploit,

Did you get a fix for this yet? I have the same problem with konqueror opening a new window on every directory, despite the old check button saying not in the config window. I'm suspecting this is not much to do with konq itself since I renamed the config file and the kde /share /apps /konq directory with no change in behaviour.

It may have more to do with file associations since I'd just changed the html association to firefox when I found out that directories started opening in firefox as well. After changing the RMC Open With back to Konq I was left with this behaviour.

So far here's the way to fix it:
in a console su to root and run
kfmclient openProfile filemanagement

Chances are that it'll work OK without spawning more windows for every dir. I also created a fresh user and konq worked for that OK as well. So its got to be a user profile issue buried in ~/.kde somewhere. However, its not in the obvious places like ~/.kde/share/config/konquerorrc and ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/. I moved both of those to my user with expected changes to konq profiles but no cessation of the multiple windows opening.

So its got to be something else unde .kde. I'll fart about moving the whole directory when its not two in the morning.


Cheers.

Hey Sploit,
Try looking in ~/.kde/share/config/konquerorrc.

In mine the first group is [FMSetting]
My first line is
AlwaysNewWin=false

You might want to see what yours is.

Hopefully that will be it, if not I will look further.
Good luck

Not worked for me I'm afraid, we could have different versions of course. I'm on :
Qt: 3.3.3
KDE: 3.2.3
kfmclient: 2.0
There's no FMSettings or AlwaysNewWin in konquerorrc

Cheers

I eventually gave up on this and made a new user. The new user worked find. Next I removed the old one and all of it's configs, profiles, etc. Finally I remade that user and copied everything over from teh other one i created.

I didn't have THIS problem, but has smth similar with kppp log window. And the thing like "do not show log window" was unchecked, but it was appearing everytime I call to ISP. I just "checked" this thing - log window appears as it should to. Then I unchecked this thing - log window doesn't appear any more. So... may be that's a little KDE bug...

Well If you have a problem with "stupid noob questions" then why do you post here? This particular sections is for stupid noobs! You were like us once, you weren't born with Linux in your head. Cut us some slack.

Yeah, mhelliwell is right. YOU yourself were a Linux noob, weren't you??? And if you answer here, in newbie forum, this means: either you've learned a bit about Linux and want to show yourself as a Linux specialist to newbies (who you are NOT), or just a man who knows smth and tells others this smth, i.e. just guides noobs the right way. From your post, it seems that you're just a... Ok, I stop. But remember: if that man is a noob in Linux, he can be a specialist in other field. So don't take on too much, man, you're not Jesus Christ.

I've actually been using Linux for about two years, but since I never ran accross this problem before and it seemed like it would be something stupid that I just never learned to do. I decided to put it here. I also recently started using Mandrake over FreeBSD and they are two completely different beasts and I am still getting used to Mandrake.

Mandrake is a great OS. It combines linux power with windows simplicity. I got sick of doing everything manually in FreeBSD and I wanted an OS that did not need me to hold its hand every step of the way.

urpmi and drakx make Mandrake much easier to use than traditional *nix systems and I like that very much. Although I like the ports package in FreeBSD it does not compare with the huge rpm databases.

Why does everyone hate Windows? Because it is always getting virii, worms, and other security flaws? Well although I do not use windows I still respect its place in the evolution of computers. Desktops would be significantly less evolved and so would many many programs and packages we use in linux daily.

I do not want to sound like I am defending MS, but it is stupid to blindly say things like M$ is stupid. Well if you think it is bad, put a reason. Don't just blindly say that Microsoft is a bad company. i.e. I, personally, do not like ms because their products appeal to the lowest common denominator. They put out products so that any idiot can use it and they will because they are too lazy to realize that there is something better.

That's the reason why I prefer Slack, not Stupid, Lazy Mandrake. Goddamn! Why do u live, man? (I repeat) u want someone to clean up your ass? I don't - I wanna do it myself.
Some things why I don't like win:
1)It makes people think that they are genius after they installed any app
2)F***ing recovery cosole!!! This is SUCH S**T!!! Recovery! You can do nothing there.
3)I hate monopolies, especially B.G., cuz his just a... he's the whole fool in programming (like me), and he gets money for nothing! Tell me what xp has different from 2k? Skin? This f***ing recovery that just eats up all your disk space uselessly? NOTHING.
4)what else... hmmm... I hate to watch their advertisement everyday on TV talking the s**t like : your patential is our passion! WTF!!! And I hate McDonalds, Coke, Pepsi. I HATE ALL WHO MAKES US CATTLE, JUST PIGS. Fat, lazy... geys and lesbi in the end! Damn 'em! AAAAhh! I hate this world! But not all. Very few people are who understands that THEY USE US. And the same is for Mandrake - you're becoming stupid using it. You don't think, you only click, click... And it has at least 1 bug - with main menus in KDE and GNOME! It was with my Mandy9.2. And I heard the same here about 10.0! S**t doesn't change!
5) another win s**t: when you hold the caption of an app (if this app uses timer) this timer stops!!! IN ALL WIN32!!! Try to play winmine. WIN IS WHOLY S**T. IT HAS MANY, MANY... HOLES. And M$ don't repair 'em!
In short: watch 'Fight club', listen to 'Tool', 'Korn', 'Eminem', 'Sepultura', 'System of a down'... they sing what I'm talking about: PEOPLE = S**T!!! (Slipknot). Here's a bit from 'Tool':
~~~Hooker with a pe*is~~~

I met a boy wearing Vans, 501s, and a
Dope Beastie t, nipple rings, and
New tattoos that claimed that he
Was OGT
From '92
From the first EP

And in between
Sips of Coke
He told me that
He thought
We were sellin' out
Layin' down
S**kin' up
To the man

Well now I've got some advice for you, little buddy
Before you point the finger you should know that I'm the man
I'm the man then you're the man, and he's the man as well, so you can
Point that f***in' finger up your ass

All you know about me is what I've sold you
Dumb f***
I sold out long before you ever heard my name
I sold my soul to make a record
Dip s**t
And you bought one!

So I've got some advice for you, little buddy
Before you point your finger you should know that I'm the man
If I'm the f***in' man then you're the f***in' man as well, so you can
Point that f***in' finger up your ass

All you know about me is what I've sold you
Dumb f***
I sold out long before you ever heard my name
I sold my soul to make a record
Dip s**t
And you bought one!

All you read and
Wear or see and
Hear on TV
Is a product
Begging for your
Fat ass
Dirty dollar
Shut up and
Buy, buy, buy my new record
Buy, buy, buy, send more money
F*** you, buddy
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
That's not actually for you, but... if Mandrake is s**t, don't deny it! The same about M$ s**t! Sorry for violence, but I become crazy when I hear "Mandrake is good". IT'S THE WORST DISTRO!!! THE WORST! Try Slack - you'll understand it yourself. Thanks... >(
