Description ariasuni 2012-12-26 15:46:50 UTC
When I want to copy a file with ":" for example to a FAT32 partition, Dolphin display an useless error message.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Pick a file with ":" in his name for example
2. Try to copy the file on a FAT or FAT32 partition
3. See the error message
Actual Results:  
Dolphin display this error message:
"Could not write to /path/to/filewithforbiddencharacters"

Expected Results:  
Dolphin could display an error message like this:
"Could not write to /path/to/filewithforbiddencharacters because it contains one or more of the forbidden characters: / \ : * ? " < > |."
"Could not write to /path/to/filewithforbiddencharacters because it contains the followings forbidden characters: ":"."

Do filesystems announce which characters they support in filenames?
Comment 2 ariasuni 2012-12-27 09:49:09 UTC
When I modify directly the filename when the file is on the FAT32 or ext4 partition with forbidden characters, Dolphin just tells me that it is impossible to rename the file. Note that the file is effectively renamed at the screen, like if it works, and I must refresh the view to see that the name is not changed (but I think I must open a separate bug report if not already done by someone else).
