Dolphin not saving bookmarks


Hi
I have just install kde 4.14.6 on the top of my arch linux. In dolphin, I am trying to add some of my directories (as bookmarks) under places, but dolphin clears the (bookmarks or) places entries everytime kde restarts leaving only default entries under the tab of "places". Is there any problem here or bug or something else. Kindly check the following screenshot:

How it can be fixed?
Regards

You could try Konqueror. It is a perfectly serviceable as a file manager. I prefer it to Dolphin in any event.

I just tested in Konqueror v. 4.14.2 and it bookmarks directories quite nicely using the Bookmarks-->Add Bookmark menu item. I can't speak to v. 4.14.6, so please let us know what happens.

konqueror was once my favourite filemanager, however, with the passage of time, i get used to of dolphin so much that now it seems strange when I use konqueror
However, i will give konqueror a brief try, as long as dolphin gets an update.
Thanks

I still prefer Konqueror as a file manager.

For one thing, I can easily have as many tabs as I want; I often have as many as five or six pointing to different directories, sometimes on different machines and devices. As far as I can find out, Dolphin limits me to a split view (if there's some setting I haven't been able to find in Dolphin, please let me know).

Hello,

Settings > Configure Toolbars > (navigate to) "New Tab" > right-arrow > (organize with) elevator-arrows > Apply > OK

Another miss, the "Delete" pop-up option:

Settings > Configure Dolphin > Services > (navigate to) "Delete" > Apply > OK

Hope these help

DSRocha!
Presently, I am not using KDE, however, I will try your solution as early as I install KDE.
Thanks
