use Dolphin or Konqueror in Gnome

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi, I am trying to get Dolphin or Konqueror to open mounts on a Gnome desktop rather than nautilus. The reason for this is because I have noticed severe lag when browsing through windows shares. After testing and reading forums I have come to the conclusion that it is nautilus that is causing this lag. When testing with Dolphin under KDE on the same machine I was able to go through the shares without any issues. I have found the following topics on the subject: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=297359 http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=299927 https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DefaultFileManager I have managed to get the users home link to open up in Konqueror but when I apply everything from the above links I get a blank desktop. Ideally I would prefer the desktop to carry on using Nautilus but have the mount links open up with konqueror. Before anyone suggests to just use kde: I'm working on a school network where I have already locked down the Gnome Desktop The head of IT specifically requested Gnome rather than KDE I'm hoping the above way will be easier for me. Saying that, if I can't do it this way I will use KDE once I have sorted out locking down the desktop. Regards, Adam (HowTos)
