I am a bit confused on what is going on here. I have an up to date 2009.x with the latest KDE 4 (as of 1 Aug 1).
On my desktop I have several icons. Some are folders, some are files, and some are system links.
When I mouse over on one of the folders, a box comes up with the contents of the folder. That is pretty cool, but when I click on it, Gwenview comes up with the contents. Now that is terrible since there are files in that folder and they do not show up correctly.
Even the folder that I call home comes up in Gwenview. However this is probably because I created a link to my home folder. I cannot remove this icon. Right click and move to trash, a box pops up in the lower right corner that informs some sort of activity is taking place, but the icon never goes away.
Now that the original Home icon was defunct launching Gwenview and it cannot be removed, I created a new icon and called it Home2. This is a link to Dolphin. When it is clicked I get a proper navigation of folders and files. Fine, but when I mouse over, no previews of the contents exist.
Where do the mouse over folder, display contents come from? How is it turned on? Because the mouse over stuff seems to only work with Gwenview associations.
Konqueror still seems to be alive and well, no mouse over stuff associated with it. Nor does it have the action option when you right click. I use Kim all the time for resizing of images. Will Kim work with the new implementation?
Overall I like the KDE 4 but there are some things that just seem disorganized and not standard throughout.
Maybe I borked something at some point, but all is functioning without too many problems.
