It would be nice if this could be merged with some other applet. It is kind of a weird stand-alone entry under Appearance, but it does offer control that I can't find elsewhere. > > Not present in my 3.5.10, nor does my 3.5.13 have any controls related to samba. > I seem to recall that smb4k, which I no longer use, installs a samba applet rather > than it being part of the stock kcontrol. > I think you are probably right on this.

There was a bug against Digikam regarding only downloading with the ALL CAPS extensions. This seems to provide the same extension naming control as was added to Digikam to resolve that bug. I don't know if this is even needed any more or what it applies to. If anyone knows, please chime in. > My point in saying all this is not that these things shouldn't be added to kcontrol, it's > that they can't be said to be "missing" from 3.5.13 because they weren't actually part > of 3.5.10 in the first place (and that we have to be careful, in the first two cases, that > we don't accidentally duplicate something). > Agreed, That was the point of the review and screenshots. I am no kconrol historian or expert, but if we are going though kcontrol to see if naming and layout can be improved, I want to make sure we don't have applets slip through the cracks. -- David C.
