I find that Konqueror 4.7.95 will not download from SourceForge. Despite
that fact the the box:

Ask whether to save to disk instead ()

is checked for the mime type, the file if first opened in the Ark Part.

In my experience, that's often due to overlapping mimetype defs; there's
probably more than one mimetype that applies (perhaps an earlier x-
mimetype that has now been formalized and thus doesn't have the x-prefix
any longer), and konqueror happens to be applying the rules for the other
one first.

I forgot to explicitly mention that it was working correctly in KDE-4.7.

However, that is a good idea and I looked through the relevant MIME types and they all had the box checked.

What makes this a bit more difficult to deal with is the way mimetype
handling is done, with additional apps marking the mimetypes they handle,
and often bringing in both legacy and current mimetype definitions just
in case.

I do have redundant MIME types for such file types (e.g. tar.gz). However, they are all configured the same.

That said, if ark is opening it, it's almost certainly doing so by
downloading to some temporary location and then opening that.  As long as
you keep the arkpart display open, it should keep the tempfile around (if
you close ark, it will likely delete the tempfile), and you should be
able to check your tempdirs and caches, etc, and find it.

Yes, it can be saved, the only problem is that you have to wait for it to download _before_ it can be saved; which can take a while.

Note that one way to do this is to make use of the /proc filesystem,
which will have a subdir for each active app and within that subdir, a
file for each open filehandle of that app.  So you can use top or the kde
process list to get the PID of the konqueror process, then look in that
procfs entry to check its open files and find the location of the open
tarball file that way.

Not really necessary as: "File -> Save As" works after the file has been downloaded to a temporary location.

IAC, I went through the MIME types again and it still doesn't work the way that SourceForge is supposed to work.
