Recording notes about how I configured konqueror 3.1.0 (on a Mandrake 9.1 system) so that I can transfer the configuration to other systems.




In any case, one of the first steps is to install the freely distibutable Microsoft True Type Fonts — see <later>. (But I haven't done that (successfully) yet, so the fonts mentioned here are not the MS TT fonts).

Settings -> Configure Konqueror

There are important settings here, I won't record them (lazy) because I think I can pretty much recognize those I need. (The combination of open in new tabs but without automatically activating them gives the eqivalent (I think) of the Mozilla open in background tab feature (but, that's on the context menu anyway).)

Minimum 11 / Medium 13; Helvetica, Courier, Times, Helvetica, Helvetica, Helvetica; Font size adjustment 0, Use language encoding

Java and Javascript
I should set up, but I haven't so far (well, I guess Javascript works, Java, AFAIK, does not.

Grab /rhk/my_kde_conf/konqTWiki.css and install it on the new system (reduces vertical whitespace on TWiki, set fonts to Courier, sets background to Ivory. Then I vary between using the default and this. For an online example of the settings on the stylesheet, see <later>.

Configure Toolbars
Delete everything except the address bar (so it is as narrow as possible) (That was an issue in Galeon (for my son), don't recall if the original configuration was a problem in konqueror.)

Configure Shortcuts
I should configure shortcuts for increase and decrease font sizes (or at least increase) as I have to do it so often. I'll take a preliminary stab at shortcut keys — how about <ctrl><shift>+ and <ctrl><shift>-?
