Description Patrick Silva 2020-11-13 16:46:35 UTC
Created attachment 133307 [details]

1. open KPM
2. right-click on any unmounted partition, choose "Edit mount point"
3. click on "Select..." button
4. select /mnt and click on "New folder..." button
5. type any folder name and press enter

"You do not have permission to create that folder." error message.
See the attached screenshot please.

KPM should ask for credentials and create the mount point

That is a bit tricky...

We use QFileDialog::getExistingDirector and it does not support polkit.

In fact none of the applications in KDE implement what you want at the moment.

Can anything be done about this in Plasma integration?
Comment 4 Andrius Štikonas 2020-11-14 11:58:31 UTC
Ok, I briefly looked at this a bit more, looks like Plasma integration is just relying on KIO.

So I think we can mark it as duplicate of 179678 (KIO needs PolicyKit-kde integration)

Unfortunately this issue is very tricky. As you can see original bug was opened in 2009...
