Description Dane 2012-09-24 22:50:23 UTC
Dolphin doesn't respect the 'hide files' option in the Samba configuration file.

On my home server, I have 'hide files' set to the following on a share in order to hide HTPC metadata when I'm viewing the share on my PCs. The hide files option is respected under Gnome and Windows, but as far as I'm aware, has never been respected under KDE.

    hide files = /*.xml/*.metathumb/*.jpg/*.jpeg/

This makes it very difficult to limit my view to only files I want to see. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set 'hide files' option in smb.conf for a share.
2. Open share in Dolphin.
Actual Results:  
I can see the files I've asked Samba to hide.

Expected Results:  
Like Windows and Gnome, I would expect is that the files specified under the 'hide files' option be hidden from view unless the "Show Hidden Files" option is enabled in Dolphin. (Although in my case if they never showed up at all I'd be happy with that too!)

Additionally, I've seen this behaviour on the Ubuntu and Arch packages, so I don't believe this is limited to the Debian releases.

Thanks for the bug report! I have never worked on Samba issues (or even used Samba seriously myself). Do you happen to know how Samba stores the information about the files that should be hidden?
Comment 3 Frank Reininghaus 2012-11-23 15:53:10 UTC
Actually, this looks more like it should be fixed in the smb kioslave, not in Dolphin.

Comment 5 Yannik Sembritzki 2014-07-30 11:40:19 UTC

is not a duplicate of this ticket! even though related as it involves samba and dolphin, this bug is completely different!

Can anyone reopen this or will I need to create a new bug?

Pushed by sitter into branch 'master'.

smb: support more advanced hidden file flag

smb attaches different meaning to the +x flags of files to represent DOS
style flags. read them and hide hidden files. we currently have no
KIO backing for the others but for documentation purpose I've mentioned
them in detail so we can extend this in the future without having
to descend into samba docs.

FIXED-IN: 19.12.3

Test Plan:
- set jpgs hidden as described in bug report
- they are now hidden in dolphin
