Ok, changed. In fact, menus are not capitalized in my native language, but they are with "LANG=en_US.UTF-8 kate", hence the misunderstanding.

It won't open anything if there are more than one path in the selection (the file existence test will fail). I don't think it's possible to manage multiple paths without doing important assumptions on separators. Maybe you have a good idea to manage them ?

I changed the code to support http://-like paths.
