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.

#4 Updated by solnyshok 4 months ago

same problem here. let me cast my vote for smb:// nas iso access

#5 Updated by Billiard26 4 months ago

I vote "won't fix" on this. KDE can stop being stupid and use the Linux filesystem like it's supposed to.

This issue is now not so much about KDE and more about supporting SMB in the first place imo!

This is a duplicate of #7886

#8 Updated by JosJuice 10 days ago

The issues are for different OSes, and were also reported several years apart. Not necessarily a candidate for being marked as a duplicate.
