Description 2012-02-04 18:27:19 UTC
Version:           2.0 (using Devel) 
OS:                Linux

When a tab is too big or too small, i double click in the division of the tab so that can be resized to some default size, like it was possible before dolphin 2.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
For example resize a tab to some bigger or smaller and then double click on the tab division to see what happens.

Actual Results:  
nothing happens when double clicking in the tab division to allow resize.

Expected Results:  
Should be possible to resize tabs to a default size like it was possible before dolphin 2

OS: Linux (x86_64) release 3.2.2-1.1-desktop
Compiler: gcc

Thanks for the detailed report. This is a known regression and we'll try to fix this during the KDE 4.8.x cycle

Resetting assignee to default as per bug #305719

Well i cant see the bug #305719, it says this:
You are not authorized to access bug

anyway i have seen that in dolphin Peter Penz did adopted a different approach to resolve this problem and in my view did not fixed this problem, because when double clicking in columns separators it continues to not doing anything, where the default/expected behavior would be adjust the column size with the size of the files text.

It would be much better if we could double click in columns separators and have them resized and also have the right click approach implemented in Peter Penz time.

In my opinion we should always use "automatic column widths" and remove the custom column width code completely.

AFAIK, this was also Peter's original idea, but he dropped it after there were many complaints from users for whom custom column widths are an important feature (see bug 264434).
