File browser wont open.


Whenever i try to open a window in Konquerer for example home, trash, anything it says Loading and has the hourglass spinning then it just quits. The only way i can look at files is threw nautalas...... how do i fix this?

OK and if you don't su and type: konqueror /home
?

Also: Check your settings in KDE "control panel" (I actually have no idea what this is called in english, hope you understand what I mean).
For example: System->Paths

Arghh.... this is a known and common problem with Mandrake 10.1. Hundreds of people have asked about this problem. There is a fix for this. Go update your Mandrake and the problem will be fixed.

This is a shot in the dark and perhaps more of a workaruond than a sollution - But you could remove the update_source and then run update to re-add it.

No, re-adding the source does not fix the key problems.

Under 10.1 the pubkeys are discovered automatically, but often packages do not have their sigs adjusted.

For 10.1 all you have to do is "update" the source to pick up any changes.

For 10.0 and before you must manually add the keys...

See: http://www.zebulon.org.uk/urpmi_en.html

Add the sources as indicated above, and then to update your ENTIRE system at once type in

urpmi --auto-select

in a root console.
