The KDE's system IO slave is not intended to work in terminal, therefore you 
can't copy its URL's into a shell window. As a workaround, you might want to 
try to navigate to your directory using Konq and then use Tools -> Open 
terminal (F4) to get a shell window (konsole) in the corresponding directory.
