More Info:

 kio_resources provides the resources protocol for
KDE. kio_resources allows you to browse all
installed files in the standard search paths
(generally .kde and /usr). The general format of a
kio_resources URL is
resources:/resource-type[/relative-path]. Thus, to
view all wallpapers installed on your system, both
in your home directory and in the KDE installation
path, you type resources:/wallpaper. If you simply
want to look through all the available resource
types, use resources:/.

A nice feature of kio_resources is that it always
saves resources to the local directory (under your
home). That means that, for instance, new
wallpapers can be installed under your home dir by
simply copying them into resources:/wallpapers.
This makes it unnecessary to be aquainted with the
standard paths used by KDE, and it also allows you
to edit a system file and save it locally, so that
the local copy is the one that is visible to KDE

kio_resources uses the KStandardDirs class, along
with its helper functions, locate() and
locateLocal(), to do its important work.

Refer to BUGS for known issues and COPYING for
terms of use.

 Version 0.2

- Direct moving/renaming is now implemented.
- Miscellaneous bugs fixed.
- Cleaned up the code somewhat.

And most importantly, the download link works once
again ;-)
