Konqueror Preferences

Hey everyone,

I am pretty new to Linux (only been enlightened for about 6 months or so now). I was wondering where Konqueror stores its preferences? I know opera and mozilla store them in a file and if you delete that file you can start all over, but I don't know how to do this with Konqueror. The reason for the question is Konqueror automatically tries to download stuff inside the browser instead of asking me if I want to save it and that drives me nuts. I figure I can reset all the preferences and fix it ... Thanks for the help

The konqueror folder from what I can remember is in your home directory but its hidden as .konqueror. But if you just want to change the preferences I think its Edit > Preferences are something close to that

Ok, well here is the deal. You know the thing that says "would you like to open this with blah, etc. or save as?" It is something like that and I accidentally clicked "never ask again" and now konqueror always tries to download any file I want to download into the /tmp directory as some funny name. I can't get it to let me actually ask if I want to save it and let me name it and such. I hope this makes sense, but I can't figure out how to get it to let me save it or at least ask me if i want to save it again.

Or you could also go to the KDE Control Center, where you can configure everything....

Lightbulb How to reset "Save As" settings in Konqueror

Go to /home/xxxx/.kde/share/config/konquerorrc
and find the section called: [Notification Messages]

This contains the entries for the items you clicked "Do not ask me again" simply delete them, and you are back in business.

Happy Surfing!
