Hi rahulnsoni!!!

There's another thread of you running which is very similar:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=143635

Please, do not double post. It makes really difficult to keep track of how your problem is being taking care of(think if now someone answer the other thread, then we would have 2 equal threads with the same problem, by the same person. It's quite annoying). If you feel that you did not get an answer, you can simply write "bump" or whatever you want to make your thread goes up again. There's a time for doing so as well (I think it's each 24 hours). Please check the rules for more information:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/rules.php

About your problem, the best way of tracking a problem is by running the application through a console. Type konqueror on a terminal and see if it returns any error message.
There're a huge possibility that, during the installation, you've forgotten to add some essential packages. I did it a couple of times without knowing what a package was for just to keep the installation smaller. Just do not install packages that you know what it does, and that you know you wont need.

You profile is very vague as well. There's no description of which Linux distribution you are using, for example. If it's Redhat, during the install process, it checks for the dependencies and, if a dependency problem is found, it asks you to install the missing packages. You should say yes.

The best thing to learn Linux is to first have a full working Linux. Fixing broken packages right when you start using it is painful. If I'd you, I'd make a full installation to make sure all dependencies are matched, then keep using it and learning with a 100% working system. Just a tip.

Regards!

No, thank you for being cool mate . Your profile looks cooler now . Still about your problem, it's great that it works. If you want to click on konqueror link at your desktop, right click on the icon, then properties, and see if the "command to run" is konqueror. That would fix the problem completely.

Please note: I don't use KDE, so the above procedure might be wrong, but very similar to it.

Good luck and welcome to LinuxQuestions.org. I hope you enjoy your stay here .

Hi there,
I have got the solution as well as the detailed explanation of the problem. First goes the solution only for the double click problem
(1) Right click the home folder present on the desktop and than click properties now there is a tab named Execute just edit the command as "kfmclient exec file:/root/" for root and for other users as "kfmclient exec file:/home/________" where ________ is the user name for example for the user rahul it would be "kfmclient exec file:/home/rahul"

Now here goes the problem
I was been able to find a little bite about this problem. I noticed that when I login as root or as rahul(administrator) in both the cases doubleclick on the home folder present on the desktop doesnot work as well as a click on Internet/More Internet Application/Konqueror Web Browser also doesnot work and if I type konqueror on the shell than it works fine.

Now the command needed to open Konqueror Web Browser is "kfmclient openProfile webbrowsing" and the command executed when clicking on the Home folder present on the desktop is "kfmclient openProfile filemanagement" in both the commands 'profile' is a file under ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/profiles in my case the file doesnot exist even in /root/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/profiles as well as in /home/rahul/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/profiles

I did a trick which is as follows :
I made another user with administrator rights and named it as rty, here also the files webbrowsing and filemanagement were missing in the folder /home/rty/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/profiles. Than I had just executed konqueror from the shell clicked Configure View Profiles present under Settings typed filemanagement in the profilename dialog box and saved it.
The trick is that i copied that file in the folders /root/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/profiles as well as in /home/rahul/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/profiles and had just edited the second last line "View0_URL=file:/home/rty" as "View0_URL=file:/root" for root and "View0_URL=file:/home/rahul" for rahul.

Now the problem is that it works fine for the user rahul but it doesn't helps for the user root eventhough if the command is executed from the shell "kfmclient openProfile filemanagement"

Rahul
