Exclamation Make KDE/Konqueror preserve time, ownership on file copy


When I am in KDE, and I copy a file from a source other than my local hard drive to my local hard drive, it doesn't preserve ownership or time (time being the biggest issue).

Now, I can mount the non-local source and do cp -R -p <filename> and it preserves time correctly, but that is a pain in the rear.

Is there a way to make KDE preserve time (so that when I initiate the copy from KDE/Konqueror time is preserved)? My biggest sources I copy from are remote SMB/CIFS servers, USB drives and camera cards (via a USB reader). Time preservation is important.

I did some digging and someone has already posted this bug on the bugs.kde.org site, but it has been marked as "RESOLVED" on a prior 3.x version. They have merged the bug with another bug.
