Bug Description

Binary package hint: kdebase

Ok..I like what has been done with the little info area; where informative messages pop-up from, keeping you in the know. Much better than before when the messages would pop up and then instantly disappear, never to be seen again.That said, I think it may have gone a little bit too far (or not far enough, depending on how you look at it).

I was uploading a large file to an FTP site today using dolphin. It used to be that there was a dialog box that appeared showing progress and, more relevant to this discussion, a cancel button. When I dragged my large file from my computer pane to the FTP pane it dutifully added an entry to the info area letting me know I had 5 more hours to wait for it to finish uploading and even showed me a progress bar. Cool so far, except that I had dragged the wrong file over. Try as I might, I could not find any way to tell it to stop, short of logging off and back on.

I am thinking that a little red X on that info/progress-meter would go a long way towards making me happier than I already am with Karmic.

Well it turns out that there is a way to cancel. I did not recognize that the little arrow pointing to the line was clickable or that if clicked it would open a dialog with more information, including the stop button. This can be closed as "befuddled user error".
