Description hyper_ch 2009-02-16 13:05:44 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.2.0)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

When you go to system settings --> desktop search --> advance settings you are presented a filesystem tree where you can chose what to index.

The problem is that hidden directories are not shown. As I use disconnected IMAP with kdepim I have a local copy of all my mail that I want to index but I can't just do that because in the exclusions I don't want everything hidden to be indexed.

It would be good if in the tree also hidden directories could be selected.

SVN commit 928254 by trueg:

Allow to enable indexing of specific hidden folders. In contrast to other folders hidden folders are disabled by default.
I am not sure if this is a perfect solution but it fits the most common use-case: only enabling the indexing of a single 
hidden folder.

Since this intruduces a new string it sadly cannot be backported to KDE 4.2.
