Description

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

When adding a game folder, if the path is using the smb protocol (smb://nas/wiigames for example) it won't list any games.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Using KDE Plasma & the KDE's default dolphin filebrowser (different program than this dolphin), select a folder on a smb share:

Config -> paths -> add -> select a folder on a smb share

resulting bath will be smb://nas/wiigames or something similar

Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.

5.0-12247

What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)

Arch Linux, KDE Plasma 5.19.4, kernel 5.7.12

Yeah this isn't really a bug, we just don't support the SMB protocol nor have any plans to. You need to mount your SMB share as a normal filesystem using cifs. KDialog is kinda stupid for allowing that to be selected when we specifically requested a directory.

Thanks for the reply!
SMB & others (ftp, sftp, Nfs) could all be supported using KIO - Would you consider implementing it, or accepting a PR that adds support?

I ran into this too. I'd like support for this if possible.
