[KIO] Check if KAuth can be used from ioslaves
Closed, ResolvedPublic


FileProtocol:del() in file_unix.cpp (file ioslave) is small enough to be used as proof of concept. The goal is to move at least the unlink() call to the kauth helper, and check if everything works.

tests/kioslavetest can be used for manual testing, as Dolphin currently doesn't even allow you to attempt to delete root files.

The following patch is a working PoC that allows to delete root files (after polkit authentication) from tests/kioslavetest :)
