Add support for Opera

apturl can be made to work with the Opera web browser by going to Tools -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Programs and clicking "Add". Enter "apt" in the protocol field and enter "apturl" in the "Open with other application" field.

Repeat one more time with apt+http as the protocol.

Add support for Konqueror

To enable apturl to work with Konqueror you can start by creating two text files: apt.protocol and apt+http.protocol. Add the following text to the respective file.

apt.protocol
[Protocol]
exec=apturl "%u"
protocol=apt
input=none
output=none
helper=true
reading=true
writing=true

apt+http.protocol
[Protocol]
exec=apturl "%u"
protocol=apt+http
input=none
output=none
helper=true
reading=true
writing=true

Once these files are created simply copy them to either the ~/.kde/share/services or /usr/share/services folder. The former will enable support for only you while the latter will add support for any user.
