Description Pieter Vande Wyngaerde 2007-04-09 23:33:56 UTC
Version:           081 (using KDE KDE 3.5.6)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

More interesting than to know a percentage used ( which can also be visually indicated by the bar)
is knowing how much more space there is left on the disk.

In stead of 87% of 90.3 GiB used
Show 11 GiB free space left ( and the bar to indicate the percentage used)

Don't waste space displaying the same thing twice, and requiring some calculation by a user.

(Idea from comments on this article http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20070405-afirst-look-at-dolphin-the-kde-4-file-manager.html )

Fixed in the KDE4 version of Dolphin.
