I shouldn't try to be so clever - I have broken konqueror. If I select e.g. the 'Home' icon on the desktop, it opens OK. However, if I click on a directory icon within that window, I get an error message:
There appears to be a configuration error. You have associated Konqueror with inode/directory, but it can't handle this file type.
I think I did this when trying to make a gzip open with ark, but I can't see what to undo? is there any way to reset all associations? Or to stop me using the computer after drinking alcohol
BTW: SuSE 9.1 (KDE 3.2.1, kernel 2.6.5-7.151) on Athlon 2600 XP, though I can't see this problem being unique to any particular version of KDE. It all worked perfectly till Saturday!
