Description Nicholas Miell 2008-07-27 19:00:57 EDT
Description of problem:
All of the file navigation widgets in K3b are in single-click navigation mode.
This makes any kind of useful multiple-selection scenarios impossible.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Attempt to select a range of files by clicking on the first file and then
shift-clicking the last file; a discontinuous set of files by Ctrl-clicking
individual files; a combination of ranges and discrete files using click,
shift-click, ctrl-click and ctrl-shift-click; selecting all files using Ctrl-A
and then removing individual files from the selection using ctrl-click, etc.

Actual results:
Clicking on a folder (with any keyboard modifier) immediately navigates to that
folder and loses your current selection (if any), clicking on a file (with any
keyboard modifier) immediately adds the file to the project and loses your
current selection (if any), user cusses at monitor.

Expected results:
Single-click navigation mode is off by default or (at a bare minimum) can
actually be turned off.

Additional info:
This is a regression from F8.
Comment 1 Nicholas Miell 2008-07-27 20:21:58 EDT
OK, apparently this preference was hidden away in a different program in a
package I didn't have installed. After installing kdebase-workspace and figuring
out how to make the control panel icons actually appear in systemsettings
(apparently merely installing the package isn't enough and I'm expected to run
kcminit manually), I was able to turn this retardation off.

The bug here is that "retardation off" mode is supposed to be the default.
