Thread: Can't change KDE pannel on Dolphin

  1. #1

    Default Can't change KDE pannel on Dolphin

    I always set up my pannels on Dolphin (left side) this way http://susepaste.org/23965388 I could do it on a test openSUSE install, but now I can't, which is very weird.
    Everytime I close the file manager, the pannels get back to this: http://susepaste.org/34074887

    openSUSE 13.2 X86_64
    KDE 4.14.6

    You mean the folders you add to the "Places" panel disappear again?

    You,re right. I just noticed that I can easily reproduce this here.
    There was a bugfix regarding such problems in the latest KDE update. Apparently this broke it even more...
    (only for dolphin's Places panel though, it works fine in the file open/save dialog)

    I guess this should be reported at http://bugs.kde.org/.
    A similar bug has already been reported here and has a fix available that hopefully will be in the 15.04 release:
    https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=345347
    I will test later today whether this fix also fixes this issue.

    PS: there's another bug report which describes exactly this problem:
    https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=345174

    I suppose as a workaround you could manually edit ~/.kde4/share/apps/kfileplaces/bookmarks.xml in a text editor and add your folders this way.
    Or downgrade kdelibs4* (and libkde4*) to 4.14.5 using the "Versions" tab in YaST.

    PS, I played a bit with this, and the problem in fact seems to be that dolphin _ignores_ bookmarks.xml and only loads ~/.local/share/user-places.xbel now. So you'd have to edit that.

    Or add your folders in the file open/save dialog (in any KDE application), they will appear in dolphin as well then.
