About

Konqueror is a web browser, file manager and file viewer.

Netscape plugins

To use the Netscape plugins, you have to emerge kde-base/nsplugins. If you have installed all plugins you need, you need to tell Konqueror to re-scan all plugin directories. This can be done in Settings » Configure Konqueror... » Web Browsing » Plugins » Plugins » Scan for Plugins. Now you should be able to use Konqueror and view web content like Adobe Flash and embedded movies.

Speed-Up (Pipelining, DNS-Caching, etc.)

Konqueror itself does not support HTTP pipelining, which means that it feels a lot slower than it could be. A workaround is to use Polipo. Install it as described in Polipo. Now open up Konqueror and point it to http://127.0.0.1:8123/ in order to read the documentation and adjust settings. After you've done so, save and restart using the init-script mentioned above. Finally, you need to configure Konqueror via Settings » Configure Konqueror... » Web Browsing » Proxy » Manually specify the proxy settings » Setup » HTTP: http://127.0.0.1/ 8123

Service Menus

Resizing Images

If you have not already done so, install imagemagick first:

emerge -av media-gfx/imagemagick

Now you will need to create the menu item (xresize-image.desktop):

mkdir -p ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/
vi ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/xresize-image.desktop
File: ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/xresize-image.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
ServiceTypes=image/*
Actions=resizeimage
[Desktop Action resizeimage]
Name=Resize
Icon=background
Exec=mogrify -resize 640x480 %U
Code: Explanation
 ServiceTypes=image/*            # This associates the right click with any images
 Exec=mogrify -resize 640x480 %U # command that is executed to resize images
 640x480                         # can be changed to any value
 %U                              # allows the right click of multiple files
 %u                              # allows the right click of a single file

Simple as that, open konqueor and right click on an image and select actions and resize, NICE! So many possibilities.
