Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: konqueror

When I try to click on a folder in Konqueror, I get the message: “There
appears to be a configuration error. You have associated Konqueror with
inode/directory, but it cannot handle this file type.”

Steps to reproduce: install konqueror in ubuntu gutsy, add network place
(ssh), click on a folder to open it.

I followed the instructions here to resolve the problem:

You need to make sure that the embedding settings for inode/directory are correct:

   1. In Konqueror, go to Settings->Configure Konqueror and then to the File Associations page.
   2. Open inode->directory in the tree view.
   3. Click on the Embedding tab. Make sure that Left Click Action is set to Show file in embedded viewer, and by default Icon View (konq_iconview) is at the top of Services Preference Order.

But this setting should be in there by default.  Nobody should have to
try to figure this out ever again :)
