Review request for kdelibs and David Faure.

Bugs: 330463

Repository: kdelibs


When creating symlinks in KNewFileMenuPrivate::_k_slotSymLink, call prettyUrl() instead url() to retrieve the user entered text. Otherwise, a percent encoded version of the URL will be used to create the symlink which of course results in the creation of an invalid symlink. Note that this call needs to probably be changed toString() in kf5 since it is using QUrl.


  kfile/knewfilemenu.cpp e7fe237 



Follow the steps outlined in the bug report to create a symlink to a file whose path or name contains characters that are not allowed in a URL.
