Version: 3.2.2-4 (using KDE KDE 3.2.2)
Installed from: RedHat RPMs
If I display a directory of images (jpegs) in konqueror and then drag one to an outgoing mozilla email, the url looks like:
When I send this email mozilla complains that there was a problem with the attachment and fails to include it. If I do this operation on windows it works (from explorer) and the url used is:
It would appear that the problem is that it is not using a correct URL, ie file:/... is not right it should be file:///...
If you would preferr me to fix this and send in the source, drop me a note, but I'm pretty busy just now.
p.s. I have not tested this with kde 3.3 because it's too risky to upgrade, and downgrading is a nightmare. If it is fixed there please tell me and I may chance it.
A solution could be to always use the 'correct' file:///... URL internally, and for URL's which the user sees, use the short file:/... form. This can be done by letting KURL::url always return the longer form, and KURL::prettyURL the shorter form.
KDE 3.4 alpha 1 and later uses "file:///" everywhere now for local file: URLs
Please reopen if this is still a problem with KDE 3.4 alpha 1 or later
I suspect the answer will be 'no', but anyway I have to try: from what you recall from the fix, is it backportable? Not that I ask that it gets commited to KDE_3_3_BRANCH, but if I received some indications, I'd like to recollect myself the patches to include them in Debian's 3.3.2 packges.
