Description Patrick Silva 2020-08-10 14:54:07 UTC
We can use F10 shortcut to create a folder with Dolphin, but this shortcut
can not be used to create a folder on desktop.

Operating System: KDE neon Unstable Edition
KDE Plasma Version: 5.19.80
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.74.0
Qt Version: 5.14.2
Comment 1 Domenico Panella 2020-08-25 09:44:13 UTC
I am developing it but i need a help. 
At the moment i can see in systemsettings -> standard shortcut > Create Folder F10.
Now i should change the icon, translate the message (Create Folder) and i suppose associate a linux command ( mkdir ...)
Who can help me?
Comment 2 David Edmundson 2020-08-25 12:00:04 UTC
You don't want to be invoking linux commands...
Read the existing code for how the context menus work.

Both the context menus and shortcuts are both managed by "actions". 
Read through how refresh works (which has a shortcut) and how other file actions are made, for example deleting a dir.
Comment 3 Domenico Panella 2020-08-25 13:47:45 UTC
I have modified the following files:
I followed "deletefile" as example.
I runned ~/kde/build/plasma-workspace/login-sessions/install-sessions.sh
I Log in plasma-development.
I see a standard shortcut (Create Folder F10) in systemsettings but it isn't translated. 
I go in desktop screen and if i press F10 it does nothing.
Obviously, missing some steps.

There's no way of knowing without seeing your code. You could post it as a WIP patch on https://invent.kde.org, or ask for help in the kde-devel channel. See https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved/development#Communicate_with_the_team

Can I mark as solved this bug?
Comment 9 Nate Graham 2020-09-05 13:48:30 UTC
No because it's not solved yet. :) https://invent.kde.org/plasma/plasma-desktop/-/merge_requests/136 hasn't been merged.
Comment 10 Domenico Panella 2020-09-05 13:53:21 UTC
If this is merged, should I do it or do you?
Comment 11 Nate Graham 2020-09-05 13:56:52 UTC
It happens automatically as long as the final commit message has `BUG: 425191` in it somewhere. :)
Comment 12 Domenico Panella 2020-09-05 14:36:56 UTC
ok. :)
