Title: Make Konqueror Default File Manager

openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Peter Tselios (tpe)
Partner organization:

Restore Konqueror as default file manager in a next OpenSUSE version. I
don't need to say much about that. Konqueror is still a better file
manager than Dolphin. I know that they use the same kpart, but still,
konqueror does much more things and the common with Dolphin
functionality "works" better in it.

I agree even knowing that dolphin 4.6 has great improvements

It is a KDE feature, not a distro feature. You need stronger and
detailed arguments for overriding the upstream decision. According to
KDE, Dolphin was chosen because it is more lightweight.

+ Nobody stops you from using konqueror as file manager, but defaults are
+ for "normal users" not for power users that will not see changing a
+ default value as a problem. Dolphin is more than enough for common (and
+ not-so-common) users... in fact that's the main reason for its
+ existence.
