That is a KDE decision, there should have been an option maybe to be 
able to use kfind. Though kfind is still available, of course. You can 
install this servicemenu
From within dolphin's configuration - no idea if it will work with Konq, 
my guess is it should as both are using the same backend bits.

Hmm. I have always had to to tell ark what type of compression a deb 
file has - tar bzip is what you would select iirc. Though I have not used 
ark to do this in a long time. It *is* a rare use-case, perhaps filing a 
bug report would be worthwhile as it should e a simple fix.

Again, perhaps a bug report would be useful here
oops already done at least once:
Also seems to be a cross-distro issue.

I don't see this in 2 installs/2 upgrades

On my one box with a webcam attached I cannot reporduce this, other 
than it had the webcam mic as the soundcard - as I had set it to be in 
my case.
