Description Romain GUINOT 2008-08-03 21:06:57 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.1.0)
Installed from:    Fedora RPMs
Compiler:          GCC 4.3 
OS:                Linux


The quick filter input box has disappeared from the dirfilter plugin in Konqueror 4.1.00 (svn path of the plugin is /trunk/extragear/base/konq-plugins/dirfilter)
I have tried with the latest kde-addons packaged,in Fedora, and directly by CMaking this extension from SVN Head against my 4.1 installation. 

Even though i can see the plugin in Konqueror's extensions config,only the "Mimetype filter" and "clear filter" appear. The toolbar_filter_field does not display even though it should be active according to the toolbar actions config showing what should and should not be displayed. 

I've looked at the source (dirfilterplugin.cpp:182) , it seems that the 2 actions that show up are QActions, the missing one is declared as a KAction. Could this be the source of the problem ? 

I really miss this extension :(

I've migrated straight from 3.5.9 so i have not checked if the filter is present in 4.0.x

Any ideas ?

Interesting timing :)

I've got this semi-working a few days ago, but I'll need some additional help from Peter to get it 100%.

You can follow the progress (and help test the patch! :)) here:

Just to keep people in the loop: there needs to be some discussion as to whether to add the required getters and setters to Dolphin, or whether to expose Dolphin's own file filter via a KPart, and use that instead of kdirfilterplugin.  Which approach is best has not been decided yet, and I'll probably blog about it if I get some more Konq regressions sorted out, to get some user feedback :)

Cleaned-up patch committed to SVN:


90% working is better than completely broken :) To get this fully working, some additions would need to be made to DolphinPart, but this will serve until we fully work out the details.

@Romain: I'll leave it up to you to decide whether to mark this as FIXED or not :)

Hi Simon, 

I've just svn up'ed the extension, and it still works :)
Thanks for your effort ! 

I'll gladly marked this as fixed, but i cannot find on this page where i can change the bug's status, maybe i'm not authorized to do so...

Can't remember whether you need special priviledges to mark your own bugs as FIXED or not, but since you're happy with it, I'll do it for you :)
