konqueror creates desktop config files instead of links
Yet again I should have waited just a few minutes more before posting.... I hope this poste can be used just in case someone eventually faces the same bug and searches for the answer over here...
I don't get it. I was creating links to many files in a certain directory, yesterday. I did that by selecting the files I wanted to create a link for, and "dropping" them into the selected folder; this makes a context menu appear, with the options to copy, move or create a link.
Yesterday, I've created a bunch of links, that do work perfectly, but today, instead of creating these links, konqueror is creating "desktop configuration files" with the following pattern (as their names):
The file content is:
[Desktop Entry] Icon=unknown Name=home:/user/folder/subfolder/file-intended-to-be-linked.whatever Type=Link URL=home:/user/folder/subfolder/file-intended-to-be-linked.whatever
More importantly, these files don't work as links to their targets.
Just in case that matters, in all the instances I was linking image files, of the same extensions, and with the actual extensions (rather than with the extension erased).
I also haven't renamed, neither the link or the file in between. This happens immediately after the creation of the link.
I was just making more tests while I was doing that, I was checking if could be a matter of permissions; but all files, their local and target folders are mine. It got weirder when I did create a real link all of a sudden, but then tried to do that again, with the same file, to the same folder, resulting that time in a .desktop file.
I think I will give a try to another file manager than konqueror...
