Hi.

I just upgraded to KDE 18.12 in the stable branch, and the first thing I noticed is that the Information panel Dolphin had on the right side is now missing. There is no menu entry to turn it back on either. Here's a random image from the web just to show you what I'm talking about. The panel on the right side with the image and additional info is the one I'm talking about.

Does somebody know what happened to it? Is there an equal functionality somewhere? I found an 'Addition Information' menu item, but I have no idea how can I display those.

Thanks.

EDIT: asturm's answer provides an explanation and possible solution (I had USE=semantic-desktop disabled).

Check mark in Information,

Should be under View -> Panels -> Information

Or press F11 key when viewing any folder.

Then right click on Information Panel to configure.

I'm on 18.12.3 and It's been working for many versions now.

YMMV

Good luck;

George

The Information panel in >=18.12 is only available with USE=semantic-desktop enabled. Previous versions had a (broken) fallback based on kdelibs4support that depended on unavailable nepomuk.

Commit that ported away from kdelibs4support: https://cgit.kde.org/dolphin.git/commit/?id=6674c9c387d0986e99698332727bf797257bf07d

Won't that return me to the nightmare of Baloo?

I see there is actually a trick to disabling it by adding /home to some config file somewhere, but then won't that also break the previews panel?

Maybe I need to put all my network-mapped drives onto the ignore list ...

Thanks, Ian
