I noted the same question, and I really don't know where to apply the
proposed solution, but I will share what I just noted today.
I had all my pluggins noted in the konq pluggins, but shock never did work.
I just got in the habit of using the "open with" command and choose netscape
and hoped it would fly. This time, I went to the Movie page I have bookmarked
and clicked on the first movie. Sure enough, it failed, and printed a notice
to download shock etc. I re-opened the settings page, and clicked the "scan
for new pluggins" button. It didn't add anything to the list of pluggin
directories, or pluggins, but it *did* finally use shock. Unfortunately,
they use quicktime, so I still can't see the trailer. fork-it.
I am using woody, with no unstable kde locally. Here I gesticulate a big
<shrug> in an omnidirectional fashion :)
