    Default conqueror: set maximum size for preview image display

    Hello,


    I have KDE 5.16.0

    So, I have set conqueror to display image files with a little thumbnail as preview.

    I also found that you can set a maximum file size for this view.
    However, this can only be set for files from external devices.

    Is there the same option for files from internal devices?
    I googled this, and found answers including kcontrol.
    It seems that kcontrol is not used in my version.
    I also cant find a relevant setting in system settings.


    Best
    Marc

    There is no "KDE 5.16.0", you probably mean KDE Frameworks 5.16.0.
    But as Konqueror is a KDE4 application, that's irrelevant anyway, as it uses kdelibs4 (you probably have version 4.14.10).

    I also found that you can set a maximum file size for this view.

    Hm?
    I am not aware that there would be separate settings for internal and external devices, only for local and remote file systems...

    The maximum size for remote file systems can be set in Konqueror's or Dolphin(4)'s settings.

    For local file systems this is not configurable in the GUI AFAIK, you'd need to edit the config file directly with a text editor.
    It's /etc/kde4/share/config/kdeglobals for the system-wide settings, and ~/.kde4/share/config/kdeglobals for this particular user.
    There might be a line MaximumSize=3145728 or similar, modify it accordingly. If it doesn't exist, add it to the "[PreviewSettings]" section (you might have to add that yourself too maybe), so that it looks like this:
    Code:
    [PreviewSettings]MaximumSize=3145728
    (3 MiB should actually be the default anyway though)

    If you don't want to edit the file manually, use a command like this to set it:
    Code:
    kwriteconfig --file kdeglobals --group PreviewSettings --key MaximumSize 3145728
    Note that this applies for *all* filetypes, I don't think this can be changed for images alone.

    I googled this, and found answers including kcontrol.
    It seems that kcontrol is not used in my version.
    kcontrol was part of KDE3, and only applies to the KDE3 version of Konqueror.

    That's probably it. The option name is translated "foreign computer".
