Thread: Dolphin Can't Add Folders to Places Side Panel

  1. #1

    Default Dolphin Can't Add Folders to Places Side Panel

    I'm running openSuse 13.2 with the Plasma 5 desktop and the KDE4 version of Dolphin. For some reason, I can't add any folders to the Places side panel. I removed the Dolphin config files, but I'm still experiencing it. Anyone having a similar issue and know a fix? Thanks.

    That's a bug in dolphin, caused by a change in kdelibs:

    See here for a workaround:

    (btw, that thread is the third result when searching for "dolphin places" in the forum search, so you should have been able to find it yourself... )

    Oh, and adding it to the places in Konqueror should work as well (and make it appear in dolphin too).

    Right clicking on Places ---> Add entry, and then adding the folders there, and then logout/login, and they're there. That workaround worked for me.

    I did a general search for Dolphin and didn't see anything come up related. I must have missed it.

    I added the folders in the save dialog and now they appear. Thanks.

    Doesn't work here. The entry disappears as soon as I close and restart dolphin.

    Is your KDE4 fully up-to-date? That bug only appeared in 14.12.3.
