Thread: Cant's search remote folder from Dolphin

    Default Cant's search remote folder from Dolphin

    Hello,

    After an update ( i believe the one before the jump to Plasma 5.9 - i'm on Tumbleweed ) i stop being able to search on remote folders from Dolphin.

    It keeps on "Searching" without ever giving back any result...

    Does anyone have a clue about this?

    Thanks

    I'm not using Plasma 5.9 so can only offer general advice. Any particular remote filesystem protocol? (sftp, ssh, smb,....)

    If it is really a problem with Dolphin, then the following approach may help to debug (dolphin-debuginfo may be required before using gdb)

    From a terminal launch dolphin with
    Code:
    ~> gdb dolphin
    
    (gdb) set follow-fork-mode child
    (gdb) run
    Try searching/browsing the remote filesystem in question.

    Hi

    Thank you for your reply

    I get this as a result:

    Code:

    It stays like this endlessly...

    I already tried whit samba-client-debuginfo-4.5.3-2.1.x86_64 installed but got the same info plus a request to install dozens of more debuginfo packages.

    Also, i found that Dolphin running from Root works fine...

    Try a different user could be your plasma configs are broken or no longer compatible

    First try a different regular user

    ~/.config/dolphinrc I believe holds it's settings

    With new user it worked fine. So, I went into ~/.config/dolphinrc, made a backup of the file and then deleted it. Restarted Dolphin and everything started working again (had to remake a few configurations, but a couple of minutes later it was perfect again)!!!

    Thank you so much
