kdeinit launches kaffeine

As of a week ago, whenever I click on a new folder in Konqueror (in the left hand pane in file viewing mode), kdeinit launches kaffeine. Note, I am NOT clicking on a filename, rather I am clicking on a folder.

How can I retrain Konqueror to just be a file manager?

Sounds like something got horribly screwed up. You will have better luck asking/searching in a Konqueror / KDE forum. If you right click on a folder what happens, can you choose properties and change any settings? Seems like directories wouldn't allow themselves to be linked to run applications on a click? Very strange. Maybe I'm not understanding your problem?

Well, "horribly screwed up" does describe my opinion of Konqueror, as well, but takes us no nearer the solution - unless I reinstall Fedora, which seems a bit drastic, don't you think?

I can right click on a folder and change its properties, such as rename, change permissions, change ownership.

I like your idea of searching on a KDE forum. I will spend some more time searching when I could be working ;-)

Sorry I got no answers, but I agree, don't think you need to re-install Fedora I've been using XFCE lately and I really like it. Try a different file manager perhaps, but this is so odd it almost behaves like something malicious has happened. I answered a lot of posts today and its making some people angry. If there are any moderators that would like me to stop, please let me know.
