It's a bit strange that it doesn't auto-load the last profile.

Go to console and select the profile:

	konqueror --profile "Detailed File Management"

("Detailed File Management" is the profile I created myself,
using Konqueror's gui interface.)

You can also list the available profiles:
	man konqueror

When I look in the KDE Menu Editor, I see the command line
for Konqueror is:

	kfmclient openProfile webbrowsing

Changing the profile works:

	kfmclient openProfile "Detailed File Management"
