Description Rúben Gonçalves 2008-06-02 09:04:12 UTC
Version:            (using Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources
OS:                Linux

When right clicking an item (icon) contained in a "folder view" widget,the options about the widget itself are shown. In my opinion the expected behavior should be just the same like when we right click an item in Dolphin: the actions that can be done with the item (file, folder,shortcut,etc) show up. 

Thanks for your work on kde 4.

I agree with Ruben. Anyway I think this is an already planned feature, isn't it?
Comment 2 Michael Braun 2008-06-06 15:49:32 UTC
This feature should be implemented to get a smooth functionality. It was the first thing I tested after I've added the folder view to my desktop.
Comment 3 Hans Chen 2008-06-07 01:23:50 UTC
Yes, hope this'll be implanted soon. Then I might even consider placing icons on my desktop again.

By the way, duplicate of Bug 155057.
Comment 4 FiNeX 2008-06-07 09:38:46 UTC
Isn't folder view and desktop icons different things?
Comment 5 Hans Chen 2008-06-07 10:46:00 UTC
Yes, I believe so. The recent comments in that bug are about folder view, but looking at the original report, this wish probably shouldn't be marked as a duplicate.
Comment 6 FiNeX 2008-06-07 11:58:49 UTC
I hope that cut/copy/paste will be implemented for 4.1, otherwise a lot of people will skip 4.1 for daily usage and will keep using 3.5, me too.

Actually the folder view without cut/copy/paste is nearly useless.

P.S: a "containment-folder" component should be added here on bugzilla.

SVN commit 818609 by fredrik:

Add the context menu for the icons in the folder view, and add
the "Create New", "Undo" and "Paste" actions to the applet's
context menu.

The next steps are the DnD, a scrollbar and something which tell the name/path of the directory :-)

I'll open separate wishes.
Comment 9 Beat Wolf 2008-06-09 12:04:57 UTC
I think both have a patch floating around (at least i just saw the one for telling the path on reviewboard http://reviewboard.vidsolbach.de/r/50/ )
