Naw, it wasn't, it was good thinking and I do appreciate it.
The developer (Robby Stehpenson) suggested a couple of things that I certainly didn't know (I pay virtually no attention to KDE any more):
This comes up occasionally from a non-KDE workspace. Tellico uses the
KDE settings, and you check if somehow the default browser configuration
for KDE got changed somehow. Use this command:
kreadconfig --group General --key BrowserApplication
If you want to clear it:
kwriteconfig --group General --key BrowserApplication ''
Or set it:
kwriteconfig --group General --key BrowserApplication '/usr/bin/firefox'
See if that helps...
Interesting to know, but, alas, nope, did not help.
So, I figured, let's go back to infancy, backed up ~/.kde (where the application stores data sources keys) and removed every dot-file in my home directory (except .VirtualBox/ .cvspass .exrc.kshrc .mozilla/ .mplayer/ .profile .screenrc and .thunderbird -- didn't want to go back to conception, just infancy). Blew away all the files and directories owned by "me" in /tmp, blew away the files in /var/tmp/kdecache*, dumped everything I could find.
Then, logged back in as me, startx, tried it, viola
, connects to Amazon (with Konqueror, which I really
don't like using but the thing connected). Re-do my desktop the way I like it and get on with life.
How did the problem occur? I dunno. Through the magic of electronics or something like that. I screwed around the "right way" for too long and said to hell with it, nuke the blasted thing.
All is well that ends.
