Description Alexander Kandaurov 2012-05-08 19:26:01 UTC
When using the Rename command from the File or context menu, Dolphin shows no error message if the filename is too long and instead just silently refuses to perform the rename.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select a file in Dolphin and choose File > Rename.
2. Enter a name long enough to exceed the maximum length of the file system, press Enter.
Actual Results:  
The file is not renamed and no message says about the reason why.

Expected Results:  
An error message saying that the file name is too long or some other behaviour like truncating the entered name and displaying a warning about it, but in any case the user should be warned that the entered filename is too long.

Renaming the file through the Properties dialog does show the error message though it doesn't indicate the cause of the error.

I tried this using dolphin 2.1 (only support inline renaming now). A error dialog is shown: "Couldn't rename file xxxxx".
