spoorun added a comment to D17816: Support for xattrs on kio copy/move.

Does this work correctly when the source is a symlink? - getxattr vs lgetxattr.

spoorun added a comment to D10245: Add more default user locations to Places model/panel.

I don't think almost any users use or know about that because the two most obvious methods of adding something to the Places panel--drag-and-drop and the file's "Add to places" context menu item--make it global by default.

Users adding custom entries has nothing to do with your patch. If a users adds a place and it appears everywhere, well that's his problem. Your patch adds it everywhere for every user, which is what I disagree with.

-1 from my side because:

  • Dolphin: By default, the sidebar now has an ugly scrollbar. (The screenshot is "staged" in that regard.)
  • Gwenview: This clutters the Places list on the Start Page with a bunch of stuff not relevant for users (e.g. Music). I'm still busy fixing the fallout from the last patch similarly adding unwanted/broken entries, so please help out if you must add this globally. Note this is not only about Gwenview, but a lot of other apps using KFilePlaces are not interested in some of the entries either.
  • In general: Now there's duplication with Search For. For example, what's the difference between "Documents" and "Documents"? (Not everybody is aware of the headers, and rightfully shouldn't!) Same for "Pictures" vs. "Images". Maybe I could live with that if this only appeared if Baloo was turned off.
  • Plugged in an external thumbdrive? Good luck finding it below the fold! (This should be solved first by moving things around a bit.)

    I'd rather use KFilePlaces more as a bookmark thingy, i.e. something where users add custom entries they want to see either in all or in specific apps. Those are highly specialized folders in my experience, depending on user's workflows and not something we could predict. Better leave some space so users can customize themselves.

    Sorry Nate, I know you meant well. Nevertheless, let's hear first what others have to say, maybe I'm wrong or we could tone down the list a bit…

I'm afraid that removing pictures would be a bad idea.
The majority of users would find Pictures in particular essential - and lots of software and services automatically store images in the Pictures folder (for example when plugging in an SD card or camera, when downloading from a webservice).
So lay users (the ones who would be least likely to create their own items in the places menu) would miss it most.

It should be noted that Baloo seems to be very slow in updating tags to the index. So users will not see their tagged items appear under the relevant tag for some time after tagging.
Trying to file a bug, but seeing if anyone knows about this already first (may be an indexing issue?)

What do you think would be a reasonable number of tags? 5, 10, 20, ..? Make it configurable?

Please avoid configurable options as much as possible ;)

It seems that there is already a consensus about a reasonable number of tags -> so 8 ;)

I must have misunderstood something in this discussion. The functionality is there already.
Activate folderpanel when navigating to tags:// you get.


Why an extra panel?

spoorun added a comment to D7446: [Places panel] Revamp the Recently Saved section.

I support having the recently used option, perhaps by default in the open/save dialogue, and also as an optional panel.
This would be highly useful for workflow for many, including using other software as suggested, but also coming back to documents (in multiple locations) being referred to (though not necessarily saved, so not appearing in the 'recently saved' section.
