Description:

This is a proposal to address an issue that was discussed on the kfm-devel mailing list. The problem was that even some of the greatest KIO Slaves offered by KDE are quite unknown. Many users have no idea how to use them because it requires them to enter special URL's in the location bar, like fish:// audiocd:/ or man:/.

This proposal attempts to make these KIO slaves accessible by adding a special KIO Slave called the locations slave. This locations slave is accessible by typing 'locations:/' in the location bar. It offers access to some of the most important available KIO slaves and presents them in a well organized directory structure.

The screenshots show what it could look like to browse the locations slave. Note that the user's home directory is one of the available locations.

Ideally, the locations KIO slave should replace 'file:/home/user' as the default default location of Konqueror's file browsing profile. The home directory will be one click away, but so are many other powerful KIO slaves..

There is no code, it's just a proposal.

Oh I just thought of another thing, in the tool-tips for the icons it should have a description of what each thing does.

Also I think that too many of the kio-slaves have no description for them, like looking in KInfoCenter a majority of them just have 'Some info about protocol camera:/ ...' or nothing at all (right now if you want to learn about kio-slaves you have no clue what they are or how to use most of them).

i think thats a good idea if it can be made optionally.. maybe a KDE component? i know some people won't like it but anything to make it easier is really a positive.

Of course you can still select any URL as the default URL for file browsing, just as you can do that now.

But IMHO it may be better to choose the locations:/ URL as default, because it has better usability for new users. Power users can always revert to the usual file:/home/username.

The world would be better off without people like you. What have you done for KDE lately?
