All, For some reason, konqueror --profile filemanagement is not saving the needed settings to remember view mode in ~/.trinity/share/config/konquerorrc. In R14 after setting konqueror and saving view profile filemanagement I have the following relevant entries in konquerorrc: [MainView Settings] BackRightClick=false OpenMiddleClick=true [ModeToolBarServices] external=konq_treeview This results in the viewmode reverting to iconview after every change in view like viewing man:/ ,etc.. Comparing to my other kde3 installs I find: [MainView Settings] BackRightClick=false OpenMiddleClick=true ToggableViewsShown=konq_sidebartng ViewMode=konq_treeview [ModeToolBarServices] external=gvdirpart konq_iconview=konq_iconview konq_listview=konq_treeview Which shows explicitly the konq_treeview mode save for the default "ViewMode" and for "konq_listview". Without the default "ViewMode" and without the "konq_listview" definition, konqueror reverts to iconview each time viewmode changes. Please check and confirm whether have "ViewMode" or "konq_listview" or "konq_iconview" entries in your konquerorrc. I have no clue what change would prevent konqueror from saving these settings in konquerorrc, but something has. Additionally, the checkboxes that indicate which viewmode is selected seem to be missing or covered by icons in the 'View'->'ViewMode' menu. Can anyone confirm that as well? I have Treemode selected, but it is almost impossible to tell: http://www.3111skyline.com/dl/dt/trinity/ss/konqueror-ViewModeIndicator.jpg -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
