    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.

    Try settings => Configure Konqueror
    You can probably configure most of what you need from there.

    For this problem:
    Open up konqueror and navigate to the page you want to be displayed when you first open the web browser. Once the page is displayed:

    1. Click Settings >> Configure View Profiles..
    2. Click to select "Web Browsing".
    3. "Save URLs in profile"' should be checked.
    4. Click save
    5. Exit Konqueror and reopen. You should see the new page.
