Thread: File delete bug in dolphin

  1. #1

    Default File delete bug in dolphin

    Wonder if anyone else noticed this. Luckily I spotted it on an unimportant file, I'd have been very unhappy otherwise.

    Open Dolphin. Pick a file you don't want any more (or create a new one). Click it once to select it. Press Shift-Delete to force delete the file.

    When the confirmation dialog comes up, use the right arrow key to highlight the "Cancel" button in the dialog. Hit return.

    The file gets deleted anyway! What an arse. Anyone else spotted this?

    Don't use the keyboard to delete files in Dolphin, I guess

    It depends on the interface implementation.
    The RETURN key is set as default key for OK button. Once you press RETURN the default action going to be executed.
    SPACE works slightly different. Actually it acts like a pointer. The action what belongs to the selected button will be executed.

    Ah ok, now that's interesting. Is there any way I can change it, because to me that's completely unintuitive. If the button is selected with the cursor keys and I press RETURN, logic says the selected button should be "clicked". My habit is to select and press return, and I'm never going to be able to change that habit.


    KDE 4.2.2

    I don't think so that it can be changed - as I said it depends on the implemetation, on code level and not on the interface. Ask the guys on KDE Community Forums maybe they can do something for you. I don't have any idea, sorry.
