Thread: Dolphin and USB drives

  1. #1

    Default Dolphin and USB drives

    I am using Dolphin as my file manager in KDE4.

    It mostly works fine, but when I plug in my USB disk it pops up a dialogue with option to Open or Do Nothing.

    If I click Open, it opens up my Documents folder and displays an error at the bottom of invalid protocol. It works fine in KDE3.x using Konquerer.

    I have tried going to systemsettings > Advanced > File Associations > Media > Removable Mounted and added a default application of Dolphin ( chosen from System > File Managers > Dolphin).

    I can access the USB drive by then clicking on the Volume (vfat) to the left of the folders in Documents.

    The window that pops up to autorun:


    The error that is shown when it dumps down Documents


    If I click on the vfat on the left it opens fine


    It would be nice if clicking Open in the first dialogue goes straight to the window shown in my 3rd screenshot.

    Thanks,

    Some additional info.

    I added a widget to display plugged in USB drives.



    when I click on the USB drive in the widget it opens the following dialogue.



    When I click Open With Dolphin it opens!!! Now, can I have that dialogue be the dialogue that runs when I initially plugin the USB drive. ?

    Thanks

    Anyone ?

    I have no idea why KDE4.2 is using settings from KControl and not SystemSettings.

    Essentially, the first widget is simply a notifier - which was not present in KDE3; the window is the equivalent of what was available in KDE3 except that in KDE3 you have to set up the links to the devices; in KDE4 you are presented with two ready-made links. I assume more will follow.
