    Question How to set double click in sidebar "filesystem view" panel (in Kate, Amarok)

    I would like to change default single click used in sidebar panels (KDE apps such as Kate and Amarok) to double click.


    Kate - when i click (one time) on filename file editor open file...

    Amarok - when i click (one time) on the directory name, amarok open directory and show subdirs or files...

    I wish to set sidebar panel that i need to click two times to open files od directories and single click is only selecting file/dir name.

    It's not in the same "double click" which i can setup in KDE preferences. When i done that KDE works correctly with double clicking but applications sidebar "filesystem view" use still single clicking on the list...

    Screenshot of Kate and sidebar on the left:

    and screencast recorded by xvidcap with filesystem view with single click: open mpeg (700kb)

    Please help me to set double click

    systemsettings -> keyboard & mouse -> mouse

    There you can set single/double and a few other options.

    I assume it's kde4 cause of the oxygen curson on your screencast, I really don't use kde so much and I am not sure. I am fairly sure that kde3 has a similar option somewhere in kcontrol. Though I haven't it installed to check.
