Bug Description

Bionic: 1.2.2-0ubuntu1
Cosmic: 1.2.3-1

Trying to open a file a google drive file in Dolphin with name containing a # results in an error saying the file (name truncated to whatever proceeds the #) does not exist.

Upstream bug: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=395590
Fixing commit: https://cgit.kde.org/kio-gdrive.git/commit/?h=1.2&id=98eac3003a07a7b785c916950076d7b0d56d6d61
New bugfix release announcement for 1.2.4: https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/kde-announce-apps/2018-July/005457.html

Note: 1.2.3 release simply added a copy of the GPL3 license to the relase tarball, plus some translations.

*** SRU ***

[Impact]

 * Users cannot open gdrive files in Dolphin file manager that contain a #

 * Additionally 1.2.3 and later 1.2.4 contains some correction to appstream data and updated translations.

[Test Case]

 * In Dolphin > Network > Google Drive > Your account, try to open a file created with # in the name.
 * In < 1.2.4 this fails. With 1.2.4 the file opens as normal.
 * Test that Dolphin behaves as normal in other respects.

[Regression Potential]

 * Minimal, but as with any code change other regressions and/or crashes could result. As kio-drive is very targeted in it's functionality, testing its function in Doplhin and checking Dolphin other functions as a file manager should be straight forward.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed.Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-bionic to verification-done-bionic. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-bionic. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Fix works as advertised here

Fix works as advertised as well. I created a file called LongNameUsing#inMIDDLEtoTest with some text in it, and copied it back and forth from ~/Documents to Gdrive with no issue. I could easily open in it Gdrive from Dolphin.

Valorie seems to have tested the PPA build there. For the record, both fix the issue for me and my validation was with the -proposed version.

Thanks for the testing! For the future please remember to always test the packages from -proposed for verification, as we want to know that the exact ones we release to the -updates pocket have been checked by testers.
