Description Alexandre Racine 2006-07-05 01:59:30 UTC
Version:           0.8.5 (using KDE KDE 3.5.2)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

If some of you ever try the getright program for Windows, there is an option to download a file without any prompt.

Currently, with Konqueror and kget I can right clic on a file to download it. That is great, but each time, it is asking for a filename and if duplicate it will ask again.

It would be great to have an option "no prompt on downloads" and "auto rename if duplicate". The rename method could simply to add 001, 002, 003, to the end of the filenames.

SVN commit 1219464 by mfuchs:

Adds a "Ask for destination if there are no default folders"-option

If deselected no dialogs will be shown asking the user for a destination, instead always a destination will be used.
Unless KGlobalSettings::downloadPath() is not defined.
