Description of problem:
Attempting to use Konqueror to navigate around directories, or use the
level button, fails completely after a yum update just now. A dialog
Error - Konqueror
There appears to be a configuration error. You have associated
inode/directory, but it can't handle this file type.
#rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/bin/konqueror
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update
2. kdebase-3.2.2-1 installed
Actual Results: Rebooted and Konqueror windows open, but
double-clicking a directory shown in the file manager view of
Konqueror gets the error message.
Expected Results: The directory should open in the same window as usual.
Konqueror in web-browsing mode is giving a similar error "...you
have associated Konqueror with text/html, but it can't handle..." if
I click on a normal HTML link. Editing the URL in the URL bar and
hitting enter works okay.
I am experiencing the same problem. Interestingly, if I right-click a
folder and then select the "Open in a new window" option, it works.
Opening in a new tab on the other hand fails the same way as just
Dennis Gilmore has explained how to solve the problem in:
I will quote the relevant section:
"i fixed this by right clicking on a folder -> selecting properties ->
where it says Type : directory is a tool box icon clicking it ->
embededding tab -> and selecting Use settings for 'inode' group
till i got back to folder and it was all good after that"
That fixed it for me too. 8)
It would be nice, however, if updating to KDE 3.2.2 just worked
without requiring the user to change settings to get back funcionality
Good find Dennis!
His fix also works for me, and I found that the HTML links can be
fixed too by
- Settings | Configure Konqueror
- File Associations
- type html in the box
- open the text node and click html (this is pretty clunky this
property page - don't press Enter either or it closes the dialog)
- Embedding tab
- select "Show file in embedded viewer'
could someone of you could give me a testcase please how i can
reproduce this problem? it seems it works for me. Thanks
