Forgot to tell my environment:
Suse 9.3, KDE: 3.5.4 Level "a"
xdg-open starts konqueror

Seems to be a bug in kfmclient

It works if the URL points to a http:// location, but fails for file:/

Can anyone check gnome-open and exo-open?

Seems I already reported this on bugs.kde.org some time ago
Comment 4 Kevin Krammer 2006-08-13 05:59:11 UTC
Indeed, thank you!

I have tracked it down and proposed a fix, but I'd rather have someone with 
more intimate knowledge about the respective part of kdelibs decide whether it 
is a workable solution.

I'll close this bug as soon as the one on bugs.kde.org is.

Fixed in kde.
