Description vatbier 2010-06-09 20:29:04 UTC
Version:           4.4.0 (using KDE 4.4.3) 
OS:                Linux

I've always set my konqueror file manager to show hidden files and folders.
The annoying thing is that my home directory is shown first with hidden folders and then the regular folders like Desktop, Documents, Downloads, etc.
Better is that the regular folders appear first as they are entered much more. Now I always have to scroll down the long list past the hidden folders to look for the regular folders.
Gnome Nautilus does this right with regular folders first. 
Please fix this.

Reproducible: Always

I like to have the hidden file displayed first. Moreover someone else could like the bash-way (the "." is not considered while ordering).

So adding an option for choosing how order the hidden files looks like a bit exaggerate :-) :-) :-) :-)
Comment 2 ancow 2010-09-07 19:08:34 UTC
There already is an option to switch between "proper" sorting and natural order sorting. Why not do this properly with a choice between several styles (bash, mc, ...) and some fine-tuning options?
Alternatively, there already is an option to display directories first (View -> Sort By), an option to display hidden directories/files after visible ones would be right at home there...

(For the record, I like the current order, too.)
Comment 3 Janet 2010-11-01 16:26:02 UTC
I prefer the current sorting with the hidden files first. But options (. not considered, hidden files after visible ones) would be an acceptable alternative for everyone I guess.

This should be a setting that can be disabled.  I do not want the hidden files and folders to be show after the unhidden ones.
