News: Konqueror file manager is as awesome as it was before

Posted 09-05-2013 at 04:44 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

In recent updates it had some feature reversals, losing italics for symlinks on the "normal" file listing, the instant dir filter, and in-line renaming, but all these features are back again, in recent Debian testing updates.

[Correction. The mint version of the url to a local (on your hard drive) repository seems to work, but it's not really right.
