Does the issue occur running X/Konq as root?  If no, either permissions or
home dir issue.
Create another non-super user and run as that user.  Symptoms occur?  If no,
then your user directory has either permissions issue or a dot-file issue.

Make sure that your user is the owner and that you have at least read and
write on the contents and make sure your directories are execute (drwx).

I suspect that your profile has an issue, but give us the results of the 2
questions above, and we will determine where to go from there

I personally have not seen this error, but I dwell at the CLI for file
operations most of the time.

It is hard to tell, as not sure what the situation is to determine what
could potentially be incorrect.

I googled and got this, but it didn't help.

Did you follow the instructions provided?  Are your konq settings correct as
per the discussion?  If so, then let me know the results of the 2 questions
above and we'll see where to go from there.
