Plasma 5 device notifier only gives option to mount in Dolphin

Postby Fargo » 30 Mar 2017 18:18

I've been looking at the upcoming SolydK 9 and other Plasma 5 desktops. I noticed last night that when I plug in a media card from my camera the only option that pops up in the device notifier is to mount the card in Dolphin. In the current SolydK with KDE4, the device notifier gives the option of downloading photos in Gwenview, Digikam, or mounting in Dolphin. Is this a feature missing in Plasma 5 or is it just a setting?

Funny, I've been trying to figure this out all night last night. But I post my question here then 2 minutes later I find this thread.

Nice catch!

I've uploaded a new version of solydxk-system that will check for /usr/share/solid/actions/ and /usr/share/kde4/apps/solid/actions/
It will then symlink the desktop files from the kde4 directory to the plasma5 directory if the plasma5 directory does not have them.

It needs some trying out, though.

Add "testing" at the end of the repository.solydxk.nl line in /etc/apt/sources.list and:

Code: Select all

apt update
apt install solydxk-system
Don't forget to remove the "testing" from your sources file.


SolydXK needs you!

Having trouble installing on my test box so I checked this out on the live cd. Its better. Inserting a SD card I know get the optin to mount in Dolphin or open with USB creator. Still no Gwenview option though. I try to get an install to test it on further.
