can you restore the action panel in dolphin like konqueror (kde3) has? 

it was present also in the kde3 dolphin version, here is it a screenshot:


Comment 1 David Claughton 2008-09-22 00:00:46 UTC
Just to add, I've never used kde3 (recent convert), so I don't know how this used to work exactly, but my use case is to be able to do "Open Terminal" on the current directory in Dolphin.

Currently the only way to do this seems to be go up a directory and right click on the directory icon, which is slightly awkward IMHO.


Comment 2 marcello 2008-09-22 14:30:56 UTC
just go to the link that i gave and watch the right side bar, you will the actions availables for each directory you select. opening a terminal in the directory you are is very simple, you just need to type F4.

> you just need to type F4

So you do!  Somehow I missed that :-)

Thanks for pointing that out.

Yeah, the information panel seems empty without actions...
I see no good reason to remove actions from it.
Specially if this was once implemented... :-?

I think this would be a very good idea.  It wouldn't have to be anything too fancy, just show the right-click menu (excluding cut, copy, past, and properties), and the things that open sub-menus (like "open with") should instead be collapsible groups within the panel (like Windows XP does for some of its actions).  I think it should be implemented as a separate panel like the original suggestion and not as a part of the information panel.

Having the tasks there in Dolphin definitly makes them discoverable

Resetting assignee to default as per bug #305719
