Could you please give me a bit more info on how to do this. Bear in mind that 
with the new user account, Konqueror is working ok. It's my original user 
account where Konqueror is getting bolshi, and refusing to connect. I just 
tried running Konqueror from the Konsole while su'ed to root, and get.

kbuildsycoca running...
KWrited - Listening on Device /dev/pts/2

Then Konqueror opens, and I can access the Internet ok, but I admit that this 
is running as root.

If you can give me some instructions for changing permissions with Konqueror 
while logged out of the original users account, I'll give it a try, but am 
reaching the conclusion that removing Konqueror from the desktop is the best 
way to go to save my sanity. I'd post to to the Konqueror authors, but have 
no replies in the past from KDE app authors, so that's probably a waste of 


Just a little glitch, but no reason to give up on KDE.
