Review request for kdelibs and David Faure.


Opening remote URLs does not work well with non-KDE applications that claim to support remote URLs (%u/%U in Exec in .desktop) but do not support the particular protocol. For example opening a smb:// share in Dolphin and trying to open a document using launches OOo with the smb:// URL, which fails (silently, because OOo couldn't be bothered with an error message apparently).

This patch makes KIO fall back to using kioexec also for these cases.


  trunk/KDE/kdelibs/kio/kio/krun.cpp 1154979 



Tested the above case -> kioexec, and also with a KDE app -> opened directly.
