I found it rather frustrating that the directories under / did not show 
up in the side pane (except for 'Root Folder', home and media) even with 
"Show hidden files' they were only visible in the main window and not in 
the side pane as a 'tree' that I was used to. So, I went to 
/etc/kubuntu-default/settings/hidden-root and renamed it to 
hidden-rootOLD (I opened konq using 'Alt F2' then typing in 'kdesu 
konqureror' - gave my password and then navigated to the offending file).
Now I can see all the tree structure as it _should_ be ;-)
