So, I'm on xubuntu 16.10 and I installed dolphin from repository. Clicking Network in Places side panel results in no action, location doesn't change from current dirrectory. If I right click it and select open in new panel, it brings up blank remote:/ location. I still can see network shares in other browsers (thunar and nemo) normally.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. On xubuntu 16.10
2. open Dolphin
3.Click Network in left panel
Alternatively to 3.: right click Network in Places menu and choose open in new tab
No change, or blank remote:/ location shows up in new panel
There should be local network samba shares visile like it is in other browsers on same machine.
Update: This problem doesn't exist in Dolphin4 on same system
Update: workaround: This problem can be fixed by installing plasma-workspace
Yep, remote:// is provided by plasma-workspace.
It's actually in "kio-extras", you do not need to install the Plasma workspace.
Pardon, I confused "remote:" and "network:". Not sure if the remote-kioslave can be moved to kio-extras; it should not depend on the Plasma workspace.
Reassigning to Plasma developers to check if it can be splitted from there.
it is in plasma-workspace. applications:// and desktop:// are also in there.
Arguably kio-extras is also a bad place. desktop:// and remote:// are fairly core - and the whole point of extras is that they are...extra.
and because kio-extras is in applications moving is a complex nightmare as we no longer have a simple release schedule where we could do this.
Pragmatically this ends up breaking things for more users than we end up fixing it for...but it is technically currently wrong.
Wherever this ends up, knetattach (from plasma-desktop) should be moved together with it IMO, as it is tightly integrated in kio-remote and unrelated to Plasma.
only way would be i guess renaming the files, like kio_desktop2.so etc

Drop remote ioslave, which is now in KIO 5.32
As discussed on plasma-devel , the remote ioslave has been moved to kio .
This bumps the minimum KF5 version to 5.32
