Description of problem:
Konqueror still shows "Devices" but when you try to select it, it just pops up an error dialog with "Protocol not supported: devices"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Konqueror
2. Select Services
3. Right mouse button on Devices -> Open in New Window
Actual Results: Error requestor pops up saying devices: protocol not supported
Expected Results: Should show devices available on this system
I reinstalled FC4 when I upgraded my FC3 machine, but my home directory, including ~/.kde, stayed untouched. This could be a FC3 (KDE 3.3.x) to FC4 (KDE 3.4.x) preferences upgrading issue.
the device protocol is obsolete in new kde-3.4.x, please use media:/ instead.
It is a KDE 3.3 -> 3.4 settings migration issue. Here is the fix:
- close all Konqueror sessions
- delete/rename directory ~/.kde/share/apps/konqsidebartng
- start Konqueror
You'll get brand-new sidebar settings which have "Storage Media" correctly
referencing "media:/" under the Services tree.
KDE 3.3 settings: devices.desktop
KDE 3.4 settings: media.desktop
i have added device protocol back for backward compat. It's fixed in rawhide
