Konqueror Web Browser


I've decided that I want to make Konqueror my default web browser instead of firefox, there are just a few things that I've seen it do that I like better. Anyway I have a few questions. Number one being, where is the Konqueror installation folder so I know where to put my java and flash plugins. Secondly, how in the world do I work the javascript filter? For example I want to allow my university online class site at http://www.moreheadstate.blackboard.com and so I tell it to allow *.blackboard.com and when I go to the site it shows up for a second and then flashes to a screen telling me that the javascript is being blocked. This is a problem with Konqueror and not the site b/c I can view and browse the site just fine with firefox. Also I would like to know why the menus made with css such as the one on my university homepage at http://www.morehead-st.edu are either placed wrong or show up weird. I would also like to know why even though I set the home page to my university site, every time I open it for the first time it takes me to the page that says, "Thank you for choosing Mandriva Linux". Any help with this would be greatly appreciated guys.

Hey Marcus,

I cannot help you with all you ask but may be able to guide you a bit. On my FC4 and Mepis 3.3.2 distros, I put the two flash files (flashplayer.xpt and libflashplayer.so) in the /usr/lib/ directory. I have KDE as my desktop and have upgraded a couple of times and the files now live in a new directory: /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree. One of the upgrades must have moved them there 'cause I sure didn't. In the Konqueror menu under "settings," select "Configure Konq." and then scroll down the left window (assuming you get a double pane window) and you will get to the "Plugins" section. Check the box under the "Netscape Plugins" section to "Scan For New Plugins at KDE startup." You can put your plugins in the /usr/local/netscape/plugins directory and Konq will pick them up from there. Some of the plugins are in my /usr/local/mozilla/plugins directory and Konq finds them as well. You might want to put them in both places just to be safe.

I cannot help you with any of the blackboard questions as I have never used it. I would expect that the plugins for java and other sub-applets would go in the same /usr/loca/mozilla as above.

I clicked on the MSU link in your post and everything looked just fine. How are things in Rowan County these days? I used to be up there quite a bit with the equestrian program but it has been several years.

Hope this helps a bit!

You can use it instead of Firefox, but I think there will have some major issue. For example, it causes issue in opening several tabs. Other than in windows system, it causes issues in opening searching browsers as I faced.

The link is to the actual product site, that is, Spam is a food product.
You've never had a fried spam sandwich or spam & eggs?
I wouldn't make a regular diet of the stuff, but it is actually not bad.

Linking to the food site is still spam…’tho unrelated to the topic at hand…I note that the “spammer” edited their original post to remove the link. Their comments seem to be on-topic, however

OP, you probably don't need to worry about your flash plugins.

Flash is no longer supported and, for the vast number of sites, no longer necessary.

The browser engine used in Konqueror follows a smidge short of state-of-the-art, so often has bugs, and features not yet implemented. It may help on some sites to spoof the user agent of some other browser, under Settings -> Configure Konqueror -> Browser Identification.

As an aside, I have been using Konqueror much more than I used to, mostly when I encounter nagware inviting me to subscribe to sites (because of stored cookies) in Firefox. (I have Firefox set to delete cookies on exit, but I exit as seldom as possible because I am lazy like that.)

It generally works quite nicely, but I find that it does not offer the versatility that Firefox, with its plugins and extensions, provides.

Just my two cents.

Unsurprisingly, 17 years later.

Nothing wrong with a little humor every now and then.

There was definitely a spam link there when I reported it (and I don't mean spam.com).
It looks like soni123 edited their post themselves - and they probably did, but not to remove the link.
My guess is a mod removed it without commenting on it in any way.
That user is also "Banned forever - Spammer" now.

When I clicked on the link a couple of days ago, it took me to spam.com, the food product.
