Review request for Dolphin, KDE Base Apps and David Faure.

Bugs: 251151

Repository: kde-baseapps


The most common usage for "{Copy,Move} To" dolphin context menus is that a user wants to copy/move a selected file to plugged in USB drive. Show the mounted removable media also along with "Root Folder" and recently used entries.

It would be nice to have "Places" sidebar instead of the current implementation, which includes Root Folder, Home Folder, Desktop Folder, other drives including removable media like USB drives etc. See bugs 140475, 251151 et al. This should also help in scenario where plugged in removable media is not automatically mounted (which is the default setup at least in Fedora). I couldn't find a way to easily extend that functionality, though.


  lib/konq/konq_copytomenu.cpp ca1d963 



Tested in KDE SC 4.7.0 in Fedora and also by another ArchLinux user.
