Without libkonq-frameworks, dolphin "create new" context menu only shows "connection to device". I cannot create new folders/files from there.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open dolphin (without having libkonq frameworks installed)
2. right click on a blank space
3. go to create new submenu
create new submenu has only one option
Some more options (actually i have 7 with libkonq installed)
* Kf 5.11
* qt 5.4
* plasma 5.3.1
Thanks for the bug report. This is not exactly a Dolphin issue - see 350769 for a discussion on this topic.

Thank you very much!

Unfortunately, it seems that there was not much progress so far. Since this is not a Dolphin issue, we should probably reassign it to a more suitable product. I think that the entries in the "Create New..." menu should probably either be moved from lib/konq to kio (which provides the infrastructure for the menu) or to kio-extras.
@David: What do you think?

Just to confirm, the patch in comment #8 worked to add most of the right click functions back. I'm using Kubuntu 15.10 64bit kernel 4.2.0-10-generic Plasma 5.4.1 Qt Version 5.4.2. Still no Ark options on right click, but create folder, txt, send to et al returned after applying patch.
Is it possible for us users to bypass this by copying or linking something somewhere as a temporary workaround?
In kubuntu install libkonq-common package to workaround this bug.
I am having the problem that the context menu entires for Ark are not shown, a regression compared to KDE4. Bug 351904, which looks like it is fitting, has been closed as a duplicate of this - but here I can't follow anymore. I do see some service menu entries, like the bluetooth ones and "Create New", but Ark is missing. I have libkonq-common installed (Debian testing). Am I seeing the same bug?

This is a different issue (bug 350769).

That report is a mix of two different issues, namely, the "Create New..." menu issue (the present report) and bug 350769. At first sight, these issues look similar, and I also thought first that they might have the same root cause, but it turns out that this is not the case.

Hm, actually, bug 350769 is also due to a the lack of a file from lib/konq. I'm not sure if Debian includes this file in their package.
They do include it:
But, that's a KDE4 folder, so how should this help with a KDE5-based dolphin...?

Right, then this does probably not help, but you said that you do have the "Create New..." entries in the context menu, which are also part of lib/konq. This is why I assumed that this Debian package installs the lib/konq stuff in a directory which is accessible for KF5-based applications.
That's the only file of exactly that name that I have installed.

Move the entries for the "Create New" menu from kde-baseapps/lib/konq to kio
It would be great if the translations from lib/konq in kde-baseapps
could be merged. Thanks!
