Re: [SLUG] Konqueror spits out 'malformed UR'L when accessing /home


Patrick,
Not being a KDE or Konqueror user, I don't experience this (and Chromium,
Firefox and Nautilus don't seem to have problems with the "file" protocol)

But there seem to be a number of open bug reports that are related to your
issue:-

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=192632 - Protocol not supported file

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=202288 - Konqueror has crashed browsing
filesystem,

It might be worth submitting a new report if you can't find your a problem
close to yours.
