Kbear: fish protocol don't work


Hi. IIRC Mandrake with KDE installs Kbear as part of the default install. Does anyone use it, using the fish protocol for transfering files? I normally use Konqueror for this, but am trying to help someone out who has a problem with Kbear and fish. I do not have a Mandrake/Mandriva install at the moment, so installed Kbear on Debian with apt-get. FTP works ok with it, and filling in the quick connect panel with IP address of the other machine, choosing "fish" as protocol, adding user-name, and password, and directory to look in, then tried to connect. I removed the existing RSA key for the other machine in /home/user_name/.ssh/known_hosts, that Konqueror had created, and Kbear recreates the key alright, but then it just sits there and does nothing. No error messages or anything. Is there perhaps something different to be set up in Kbear for fish, compared to the way that Konqueror works?

Very puzzled. Nigel. aka farpoint.

I don't use Mandrake, nor KDE, nor KBear, and I don't know why you had to "remove the existing RSA key for the other machine in /home/user_name/.ssh/known_hosts", but if FiSH works in Konqueror (that is: the underlying kio_slave part) then knowing KBear uses that same kio_slave as well the problem most likely is with KBear. If using the CVS version of KBear won't fix things I'd suggest filing a bugreport at their Sourceforge bugtracker.

Hi. I didn't have to remove the RSA key, but did it merely to get some idea if the Fish protocol was partially working on Kbear, which was confirmed by the key being recreated. As I said though, then it just hangs, say's it's connecting, but doesn't. I'm only trying to help this other guy. Quite why he wants to use Kbear for fish I don't know. Perhaps to keep both protocols available from the same app. Personally. Even though I have Konqueror set up to use Fish from both machines, and the many distro's that run on them, I prefer to just use Gftp for transfering stuff between the machines, and it's always worked ok. I have already posted to the Kbear forum at sourceforge. The author suggesting doing this first before e-mailing him with problems, but as it's very low volume, I think that will be my next step.

Thanks for the reply. Nigel. aka farpoint.
