Changing Konqueror home button

I would like to have Konqueror set to when I'm running it in web browsing mode, for the home button to take me to a web page I set as home. And when in file browsing mode, for the home button to take me to my home directory. But I just cant figure out how. I've looked at the files in the profiles directory and I'm guessing I could put a line in there to tell it where the home button should take me, but don't know how. Any ideas?

I've tried setting the home button through the Settings/Configure Konqueror and then saving the profile but that didn't work.

you might try here:


HomeURL=$HOME <-------------Here is the Home URL.

I have not tried this but let us know if it works.

Not an answer to your question, just a "work arround" possibility:

You could just "bag" Konqueror for html by changing the file association (in Preferences->KDS Components) to some other browser. Firefox or Mozilla come to mind, although there are many other choices. (I've got mine set to XEMACS, but I wouldn't recommend that for most users -- or even myself, but, hey, perhaps I'm a little masochistic. When I want to actually render the HTML, XEMACS sends it to Firefox for me.)
