    knoqueror cannot do anything


    I recently ran a major update of my stuff via YaST, and I can no longer run konqueror.

    When I open it, the app opens, but attempting to enter something like /etc in the URL bar gives a pop-up message saying:

    Protocol not supported

    file
    Attempting a URL, for example www.google.com, results in:

    Malformed URL

    www.google.com
    And finally, attempting http://www.google.com results in:

    Protocol not supported

    http

    Now then, attempting to run konqueror in the terminal results in the following error messages:

    Code:
    alex@linux:~> konqueror
    kio (KSycoca): WARNING: Found version 75, expecting version 79 or higher.
    kio (KSycoca): WARNING: Outdated database found

    kio (KMimeType): WARNING: KServiceType::offers : servicetype inode/directory not found
    konqueror: WARNING: KonqFactory::createView : no factory
    konqueror: WARNING: Profile Loading Error: View creation failed
    I attempted to search for "kio" in YaST, and find 2 packages, which I have installed. I also did a search for "MIME" and installed a bunch of those packages. Nothing seems to fix this problem.

    If anyone can help, I'd be grateful. Thanks.

    Not sure if this is at all useful but i had a similar problem a while ago. Somehow i think my user settings had become screwed up.

    If you create a new user does said user get the same error messages?

    Okay...

    Like an idiot, I didn't restart my computer after doing all these updates, so I was still in KDE 3.3, and was assumably attempting to use a 3.4 konqueror.

    Anyway, after restarting, it all works fine. Grr.
