Description Angel Blue01 2009-03-06 19:34:57 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.2.0)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs

The Trash should have an additional column for Original Location- the original location in the file system for all files in the Trash.

Trash already has a Restore feature, but there is no way to see where that location is. Months after sending a file to trash, this feature would help users know where this file came from and where it's going if they restore it.

@Peter: what do you think about this? Recently I've seen a screenshot of the latest nautilus which display a column (only when displaying the trash) with the original path of the file and I've really liked the idea :-)

KIO only provides kio_trash; this would be fixed in Dolphin, which creates/defines the columns.

And I think this is already implemented, sort of; right click the columns header bar, enable Other -> Path, that path is the original path. Maybe when Dolphin is at trash:/ it should say "Original Path" instead.

Oh that's a good idea.

[ViewProperties] Apply better default roles for special views

This adds the following additional special view modes (some of them were
already there but broken because they weren't applied, or were
changed to have better defaults now that they are actually used):

* Recent Files and Recent Documents, timeline:
  Details view with grouped sorting enabled and Name, Path, Modified
* Search For Images:
  Icon view with Name, Dimensions, Date Time of the Picture
* Search For Audio:
  Details view with Name, Artist, Album, Duration
* Search For Videos:
  Icon view with just Name
* Search For everything else, including Documents:
  Details view with Name, Path, Modified
* Trash:
  Details view with Name, (Original) Path, Deletion Time
