kfmclient doesn't want to open filemanagement

Hello, Guys!

I'm having this konqueror bug since some weeks ago. I hate it.

I'm using Mandrake 9.1. It works just fine.

I use KDE as my main window manager. When I click on the home icon on the desktop or on the taskbar (the shortcut) nothing shows up. I decided to check the url they have.

It says: kfmclient openProfile filemanagement.

When I run it ('kfmclient openProfile filemanagement')from the console, I get this message:
ERROR: Couldn't start konqueror from konqueror.desktop: KDEInit could not launch 'kfmclient'

Thats all I can get directly from it.

I checked for the help available of the kfmclient command. I saw that using the openProfile will actually open a file located in ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/profiles

I checked for the file in my home, but dodn't find it. But I check for it on the file tree. It's here:

I copied it to my home... didn't work.

What I finally did was run konqueror, and asked it to retrieve the profile... and it worked. Can anybody tell me where the problem is?

"Can anybody tell me where the problem is?"

I don't think that kfmclient will run without an argument list.

will not run on my machine

kfmclient openProfile filemanagement
will run on my machine.

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
