Re: A beginner

Hi Rakshit,
That's great! If there is a KDE product that you personally use a lot, that would be a good place to start, fixing small bugs and eventually moving up to writing new features. If you're short on ideas, the Dolphin file manager is a great place to start, since it's so commonly used. Here are some bugs and small feature requests to give you ideas:

Copying files to a Samba share resets their timestamp
- https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=356651

Dolphin can't open videos on Samba shares
- https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=355328

Drag-and-drop doesn't work with Samba shares accessed through Dolphin
- https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=373589

Dolphin's inline terminal blocks unmounting volumes
- https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=158264

Dolphin should be able to show file creation date, when available
- https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=286689
- https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=381367

Dolphin should be able to show the on-disk size of the folder in the "size" column
- https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=158090

Dolphin could use a built-in "Recently used files / folders" feature by default
- https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=357542
