Description Martin Koller 2007-10-28 18:23:07 UTC
Version:            (using KDE Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources
OS:                Linux

When I enter some URL, e.g. www.kde.org, I expect to have konqueror opened with the given URL (as was the case in KDE3).
In plasma, a window is opened titled "strigiclient" whatever that is ...
If I type it including the protocol (http://www.kde.org) it works.
It also does not open konqueror when entering some path, e.g. /tmp
Comment 1 Maksim Orlovich 2007-10-30 01:05:17 UTC
It's actually more general than that --- ~/kde3/kdelibs/somefile.cpp would open kwrite in KDE3, etc. Not sure whether it's the same path or not.

SVN commit 730891 by aseigo:

make /tmp, www.kde.org, etc... work.

David: i notice that konqueror is still the default file manager via KRun? would it make sense to have a KToolInvocation::invokeFileManager(QString)? how do make it so that KRun::runUrl opens the default associated app with inode/folder for directories? (i have dolphin with that association, but KRun still doesn't Do The Right Thing) and finally, how do we make dolphin the default association for inode/folder? (i'm not familiar enough with the new mimetype system =/)

maksim: sorry, i didn't see your comment there between the time i read the report and committed the fix =/ in any case, that really belongs in its own runner for mimetypes and should return an entry for all possible apps, with the default app listed at the top.
