Where would I look for the code that handles default consatruction of URLs in
Namely, I am looking for the code that would turn a URL like this:
I know that it doesn't know what it is so it is defaulting to file, but I
hoped I could change the default for URLs that start with \\ to be smb://.
This would make KDE much more compatible in a Windows-centric office, where
people often send emails with links to SMB shares in them.
I tried finding the right code, and ended up with the patch below, but it does
not seem to suffice. I think I need to do something else in the paseURL
function, but I really got lost in there. Any pointers?
