Known Bugs

Known regressions in the master branch are listed here.

  • When clicking in the empty space below the items and then moving the mouse down and out of the window while the mouse button is pressed, items may disappear from the view. See Bug #282353. Screencast available in the bug report.
  • Drag & Drop: Select items 0 - 3, drag item 4 -> 0 - 3 should not be dragged and get unselected.
  • When turning on/off the preview the zoom-slider does not change. Also when the preview size is equal to icon size no previews get generated.
  • The current item is not updated during a rubber-band selection.
  • The 'context menu key' on the keyboard (= left key beside the right Strg-key) is not supported anymore.
  • Dragging several folders and dropping on one of them causes an error message shown in a modal dialog. See Bug #283646.
  • If an item is renamed using F2, the new name is only shown after a refresh (e.g., with F5).
  • Details View: no expansion toggles are shown in the root folder ('/')

Keyboard Navigation

  • Keyboard navigation only works if the view has been clicked before.
  • In Details View, pressing Right Arrow/Left Arrow should expand/collapse a folder.
  • Details view: When navigating with the keyboard-arrow-keys the current item might get hidden by the header.
  • In Icons View with enabled grouping, pressing Up/Down does not move the focus the the previous/next row. Reason: KItemListController::keyPressEvent(QKeyEvent* event) uses a constant 'itemsPerRow'.

Sorting Issues

  • Sorting folders by size (i.e., number of items) does not work yet.

Split View Issues

  • Open a folder in split view, and create a new folder. The right pane won't show the correct icon.

Bugs That We Could Not Reproduce Yet

  • Crash in KFileItemModelRolesUpdater when deleting the current folder in Konsole and then moving out of the folder. See Bug #282340.


  • Restore current item and selection after resorting the model. See commit [1]. Frank 15:49, 3 October 2011 (BST)
  • The wheel-scrolling should use 1/4 of the page as page-step and not 1 page like currently (see Bug #284646).
  • Split view issues resolved by commit [2] Frank
    • Right click on any item in the left view, and it doesn't "actually" get selected. You can confirm this by opening the properties of the item, it will show the current directory properties and not the selected file properties. If you right-click on a file on the right view, it shows what it should. After doing this, it starts to work for the left pane also.
    • Try renaming a file in any of the views and refresh, the changes are shown only on the right one.
    • Select an item in the right pane, and right-click on any other item in the left one, click on properties. It shows the information for the one selected in the right pane.
