Version: (using KDE KDE 3.3.0)
Installed from: Gentoo Packages
Konqueror has an option to Show or Hide Hidden Files. Im guessing that this affects dot files. I often find I have files that I would like konqueror to treat as hidden files to avoid clutter, but which do not have names that start with a dot.
Two common cases for me are:
1. backup files named filename~
2. python bytecode files named module.pyc
One obvious approach is to have some indication in the file type .desktop file that it should be classed as hidden.
