The if have dolphin, use dolphin for desktop items, else use konqueror for desktop items? I would like to patch that for archlinux builds. That way I could still provide dolphin, but have the desktop items open in konqueror. As a test, I just removed dolphin from the system and the desktop item do open in konqueror now. That is the way I want it by default. I've grepped tdelibs and tdebase for dolphin, but turned up nothing but the dolphine machine hardware in the admin dirs. -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
