Review request for KDE Frameworks, kdelibs and Frank Reininghaus.

Bugs: 235457

Repository: kio


My attempt at fixing [bug 235457](
We give .directory the default Type 'Directory' and a way for KDesktopFileActions to handle .directory files.
To do that we trick KRun in opening the file as plain text.

hasDirectoryType is a new method in KConfig. see: [119868]( 
Anything I should look out for when commiting this to KConfig and KIO?

Diffs (updated)

  src/widgets/kdesktopfileactions.cpp 9486015 



Configure a folder with a custom icon in dolphin. Click the created .directory file.
