Description Havoc Pennington 2002-06-20 17:55:16 EDT
Please make konqueror use double click to open files by default.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-07-01 12:58:11 EDT
I think this is a _HORRIBLE_ idea. 
Doubleclicks are an ergonomic nightmare and the worst thing ever forced on 
computer users (remember when you had to do a double-click for the first 
I've done it for now, but I'm expecting lots of bug reports about this coming 
in as soon as it is public.
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-07-01 18:18:43 EDT
Don't change this back in response to bug reports; of course there will be bug
reports. Anytime you change anything people who were used to the old way will

If this is changed back it needs to be a deliberate policy decision for both
desktops; bring it up in the proper forum (internal desktop mailing list).

Until the policy decision is changed though, it's a bug if our KDE doesn't
follow the Red Hat policy.
Comment 3 Alexei Podtelezhnikov 2002-07-02 18:07:27 EDT
Ehh.. I only wish that the following scheme was implemented in kde:
a click selects the unselected and activates(opens) the selected.
This is a sort of double-click but not quite : in the standard double-click 
behavior you have to click twice even the selected item.

Too bad there is no way to set this now.

Fix confirmed with kdebase-3.0.3-10.
