    Default Dolphin - no progress bar


    I've just done the one click install from KDE 4.1 to KDE 4.2 (which
    worked fine).

    However when I use Dolphin to move, copy or delete a large directory
    there is no progress bar. I have searched the documentation and the web
    but I can't find any options to turn it on.

    Have I missed something? Is this a bug? surely its not a feature!

    The progress bar is now a bit hidden you will see blue a progress applet
    in the tray next to the clock.
    If you click on it while move stuff you can see whats happening

    Thanks, this helps a bit.

    However this seems a very dangerous feature, especially for new users,
    if someone copies a directory without realising how large it is. They
    might then go on to do some operation on a partially completed file
    tree, or they might delete files before they have been fully copied.

    I'm not against KDE4, I think it is good that they are trying out new
    ideas, but I think this could lead to a lot of people loosing or
    corrupting important files.

    Do you know of a way to influence the KDE developer in this matter? Or
    could Novell be persuaded to patch Dolphin to work in a safer way?
