Description Sladjan 2009-09-07 15:06:44 UTC
Version:           1.3 (using 4.3.1 (KDE 4.3.1), Debian packages)
Compiler:          cc
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.30-1-amd64

When I insert a USB flash card I can see it in the places widget. However when I try to copy something to it with drag 'n drop I get the error 'malformed URL'. The USB drive isn't mouned at that point and when I mount it before I can copy the files.

Shouldn't the widget just automount automatically and go on with copying in the first place?

Indeed we probably want to lazy mount on drop (like we do on click). Reassigning to the right component though.

on my system, a usbkey is always mounted with "root" right so I can no more use it "acces forbiden"

[KFilePlacesView] Mount place when dropping onto it

Make a copy of the `QDropEvent` including its `QMimeData`
so we can replay the `urlsDroppedEvent` once setup has succeeded.
