Launching KDE4 applications from KDE3

Question:

I have a kde3 app that needs kfmclient to launch a webbrowser, but if I install kdebase3, it will launch konqueror-3, while I of course want konqueror-4.

Answer:

  • Make a script ~/bin/konqueror-4 like this:
#!/bin/sh
source /the/kde4_env
konqueror $*
  • Make it executable chmod u+x ~/bin/konqueror-4
  • Then use keditfiletype text/html (in your kde3 env) and add konqueror-4. It will create a ~/.kde/share/applnk/.hidden/konqueror-4.desktop which isn't seen by kde4 if you use a different KDEHOME for kde4.
