Version: (using Devel)
Installed from: Compiled sources
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?
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.
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.
Isn't folder view and desktop icons different things?
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.
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.

The next steps are the DnD, a scrollbar and something which tell the name/path of the directory :-)
I'll open separate wishes.
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/ )
