konqueror: WARNING

Again hi.

when I try to open konqueror by command line writing for example

I get the following error

konqueror: WARNING: KGenericFactory: instance requested but no instance name passed to the constructor!

Can anyone tell me what should I do to avoid this error?

If konqueror is opening up OK and you just want to get rid of the warning message you can run:

$ konqueror 2>/dev/null

It's not unusual to get cryptic warning messages when opening kde apps from the command line and they can usually be ignored. Adding the "2>/dev/null" redirects these messages to /dev/null so they won't be displayed.
