Konqueror downloaded files
Hi everyone...

I just downloaded a big ZIP file in my dial-up connection (took me all night), and when I woke up, the Konqueror was browsing the ZIP file. So I thought "OK, it's where I told it to save it, right?" I closed Konqueror and opened the folder I thought it was in wasn't....(and, in fact, I never chose a place to save it in :p )

My question is: where does Konqueror keeps its temporary downloaded files???

Because of your system's write permissions, the file is almost certainly saved to your home directory, some subdirectory thereof, or /tmp.

If you can remember the name of the file, you can use the "locate" command to find it. The syntax is "locate <some.part.of.your.filename.text>". You may have to run updatedb (may take several minutes) first to refresh the locate database.

If you simply try to down load something else
the download manager will pop up at the last folder you downloaded to

Thanks a lot guys, I did find a /tmp folder in my /home directory, but unfortunately it seems that the downloaded file was deleted when I closed Konqueror...guess I'll have to re-download after all :(

Thanks again and regards!
