I had kget working just fine this AM but there still seems to be a problem with 
handling the extension .txz. The extension is correctly listed in file 
associations as a compressed file but konqueror sees it as a text file. Maybe it 
is being overintuitive and thinks its a .txt file spelled incorrectly. Kget will 
go though the motions of preparing to download but leaves the ,txz download as 
"stopped" and it has to be started to complete. Since I had no way of opening kget 
yesterday that was impossible so I ended up with multiple hidden instances of 

Probably just as well. I have it sort of working this morning and find that some 
bright spark has decided that there will be an undeletable group named "My 
Downloads" in kget with a sweet little heart for an icon. I can change the icon 
well enough but always found the "My this" and "My that" in Microsoft a bit silly 
if not downright presumptuous and patronising.

I'll upgrade soon to kde-3.3.3 from slackware current and perhaps things will look 
a bit better

I have found it in konqueror albeit I believe in kde-4.2.something it was found 
somewhere in the sytem settings. Dunno anymore.....................
