After searching all configuration options in Krusader and viewing both of the
configuration files under /.kde4/share/ I have not been able to find where this
value is stored.
I then deleted Krusader and re-installed it making NO changes to any settings.
Ctrl-P is still opening a "split" dialog. It would seem to be hard coded into
Also, I gave the wrong version of openSUSE. It should be 13.1-M1. Getting old
When I login to OS 12.3, that version of Krusader has Ctrl-P opening a print
dialog as expected. Should this be taken to a developers lsit?
