This is a small applet designed for the panel to have quick access to the most used folders.

Hints for the Drag and Drop support:
you can open the dialog by hovering for 1 sec over the applet. The same way you can navigate through the directory tree, simply stay 1 sec over a folder/the backarrow to get into the folder...
If you drop a file/folder it will land in the folder you are in, no matter if you dropped it on a foldericon or not...

If you see any bugs or think something is a design failure please inform me about it.

I have to thank Luciano Leveroni and Marcel Nowaczyk for their help, suggestions and testing, without them you would have a lot of bugs in the released version...


-fixed a bug which lets quickaccess/plasma crash if you didn't open the popupdialog before a dndevent

-improved selection(by rubberband or shift/ctrl)
-fixed a bug with invalid urls and changed default path to "~"
-applet should now save the size if placed on the desktop
-improved scrollinganimation
-the popupdialog gets closed when an item in the contexmenu is triggered

-fixed a bug with doubleclick settings(thanks for the report painkiller101)
-fixed a bug where the icon in the panel remains highlighted
-the listview now has by default keyboard focus
-changed the width of the text in iconmode

-changed the flipscrollview to an itemview that supports a listmode and an iconmode(idea by Marcel Nowaczyk aka painkiller101)
-option to disable navigation(clicking on a folder opens dolphin/konqueror)
-some visual changes(e.g. better readable text with transparent themes)

-fixed a bug where the previewimagesize was not updated when the iconsize of the listview changed
-tooltips are disabled by default
-little changes in the itemheight

-fixed a bug where the text in the listview was drawn under the triangle( thanks to painkiller101 for the hint)

-ToolTip support
-extracted the resizefunctionality into a base class
-option to adjust which previewplugins should be used(by default only the imageplugin)
-some visual "improvements"

Great app thank you !

 Folder view Fedora 9

Hi thanks for the great app/plasmoid,

When I drag a folder onto the desktop I get the option for a folder view, if I select it plasma appears to crash & restart (and no folder view).

Any suggestions,

 No-click interface ?

 by voidpl on: Nov 22 2008
Score 50%

I really admire your work - I find it very, very useful - great job !

I was wondering would it be possible to implement some kind of no-click interface? so that it would be possible to navigate through directories without any clicks, but only by hovering on the directory icon ? (Something similar to how you can navigate when using drag-drop ? )

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
