I’m trying to track down a kio_http problem using CentOS 6.4 with KDE. This causes multiple kio_http procs to spawn and lots of notifications.
Several steps are needed:Testhttp://ovh.com [^]
Create a foo.html with an href foo.html
Use html2ps then ps2pdf to create a PDF document
html2ps foo.html>foo.ps ps2pdf foo.ps okular foo.pdf
Using the KDE desktop, open the PDF in Okular then click the click. Immediately there are desktop notifications that website was contacted and waiting for reply. A ‘ps -ef’ shows man kio_http processes being spawned.
I’m not able to reproduce on all random websites, but the ovh.com always does so. This link was found in the latest Linux Journal so others may inadvertently cause this.
