RFE: add Home to top level Menu (like kde3)
Last modified: 2015-07-13 13:35:54 EDT
Description of problem:
There has been and should be a menu entry that would open the
user's own home dir with dolphin.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
installed from f9 updates-testing.
For me, shows "Home", "Network", "Trash"... among other things.
Or even: Go -> Home
But that's from within Dolphin, it's not a shortcut at the top level of the K menu (Kickoff in classic mode).
As far as I can tell from kde4-applications.menu, to add such a shortcut, there has to be a .desktop file with the categories KDE;Core;.
I understand now, yes, a difference from KDE3, but not all that sure whether to emulate kde3 behavior here exactly is necessarily a good choice.
Assuming we want to add this at all, is kdebase-workspace the right place to add this or kdebase? Dolphin is in kdebase, so if Dolphin is to install such a .desktop file, kdebase would be the logical place.
yes, kdebase, of course.

Well, $HOME is something accessed so frequently that it should
be in top level. Same applies to systemsettings and help too.
I would assume that powerusers have their shortcuts elsewhere and
also use alt+F2 - but who really suffer about this are the ones
who don't know how to do those.
And yes, this is *classic* menu. IMO thinks that the new menu thingy should have never been put to default anyway. May be shiny and colorful but has nothing to do with usability.
Sounds like this is more of a feature request than a bug. Going to assign it for now and see what the SiG wants to do with it.
And it's not specific to Classic menu either. When/if we do this change, it'll affect both kickoff and classic.
I know we discussed this during a SiG meeting. Any plans to implement it for F9 or are we just waiting for Rawhide?
Been awhile since this was discussed. Do we want to leave this open for future consideration or close it?
BTW, this is only about the classic menu, the Kickoff menu contains 'My Computer -> Home' entry
Fixed in kdebase-4.2.0-6.fc10
