Bug Description

Binary package hint: kubuntu-default-settings

According to http://adblockplus.org/en/faq_project#filterset.g Filterset.G is Bad  , maybe we could change this list to one of this: http://adblockplus.org/en/subscriptions , some people have complained about Konqueror being slow, this could be the reason.

I am confirming this as filterset.g is evil and just checked and it is top of the list in konqueror adblock. I hadn't noticed this before. Good find.

Changed in kubuntu-default-settings:
importance: Undecided → Low
status: Unconfirmed → Confirmed

Filterset.g is still present in Gutsy, and the filter list hasn't been updated since 2006-10-02.

We need to fix this - this list is no longer freely distributable.

The offending file is kubuntu-default-settings/kde-rc-files/khtmlrc

Changed in kubuntu-default-settings:
assignee: nobody → tonio
importance: Low → High

Easylist(http://easylist.adblockplus.org/easylist-element.htm ) seems to be a good candidate for replacement, unfortunately adblocK does't support whitelisting and some adblock plus specific characters.

  * Fixed khtmlrc, now uses easylist instead of filterset.g. Fixes LP:
