replace dolphin with konqueror

Dolphin is still missing some features that I have set up in Konqueror.

But EVEN AFTER changing your preferred “file browsing” application to Konqueror under System Settings ->Default Applications, Dolphin still runs on mostly any folder operation. I found that the easiest way to get Konqueror to run instead was to symlink dolphin to konqueror. as root:

cd /usr/bin
mv dolphin dolphinx
ln -s konqueror dolphin

Now Konqueror runs for everything.

Intel HDA/Realtek ALC800 surround sound in linux

actually just posting this so I’ll google it in the future and will get to this page. for some reason sound only comes out of the front speakers and is impossible to route to any others. adding this model parameter makes it happen.


options snd-hda-intel model=6stack

rinse and repeat, I mean, reboot
