No action for deb files in konqueror

Bug #17721 reported by Philip Cain on 2005-06-02
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
kdebase-kde4 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

There are no options for deb files (expect open with Ark) in konqueror. We need
the servicemenu at to
have specific actions for Debian packages.

It would add entries to the Action Menu:
Install Package
Uninstall Package
Show Installed Files

Rather than including yet another package in main, the files should be patched
into kdebase.

we now have kubuntu-konqueror-shortcuts for this, which needs to be moved into main (and maybe added as a dependency of
kubuntu-desktop) before closing this...

I can confirm this. A .deb must be openable.

By the way there are some more broken links from filetype --> application concerning such simple things like opening a .wav file!
