Open current directory from konsole to konqueror?

For example, I'm in the konsole and I want to type konqueror (or k for my alias) and have it open up the current directory I'm in. I tried $konqueror pwd but that didn't work. Is there a function or alias or something that will allow me to do this?

konqueror .

If you want to call a sub-command and insert the output into the current shell command, such as you were trying to do with pwd, you have to enclose it in backticks, e.g. konqueror `pwd`

Although in your case, it's probably easier just to do

konqueror .

(the period (.) refers to the current directory)

This is kind of a jerk reply, but anything you need to do in konqueror could be done in the terminal, probably within the time period your waiting for it to startup.

typing konqueror ./ seems to do the trick or konqueror ./ &
