Description of problem:
The menu entry 'copy link location' is missing in konqueror's FTP mode,
it is available in HTTP mode. That function is really useful when you browse a
FTP server with konquerer but would like to download files to another machine (a
buildmachine maybe) with wget/ncftp/whatever.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a website in konqueror and select a link with the right mousebutton
2. check that the 'copy link location' is there
3. open a ftp site in konqueror and select a link with the right mousebutton
4. look for a means to copy the URL of a file into the cut&paste buffer, it's
not possible at the moment.
Simple selecting and copy does work? I assume that this isn't really a bug.
Changing to NEEDINFO.
No, that isn't enough.
I usually start konqueror locally and look for package updates,
but I'm working on a remote machine with my CVS repository.
Select and copy would download the new package to my local machine and I would
have to transfer the package to the remote machine manually.
In konquerors http mode I just select 'copy link location' and paste that
to a wget or ncftpget commandline on the remote machine.
In the first case I'd transfer the file twice vs. once with the second case.
I understand your reason, but you can actually paste it to wget on commandline.
I do it quite frequently, just by selecting the item, either CTRL+C or Copy from
menu and then paste it by SHIFT+INSERT into Konsole. Perhaps I am missing
something in your argument.
