Dolphin File Name Copy Tool

For what it's worth: this tool gives you the path like so:

'/the/path/to/file'

while copy/paste in Dolphin will just give you the path like so:

file:///the/path/to/file

and with spaces if any - Dec 13 2018

Sorry for the bad phrasing above (please ignore the word "becomes"). It is odd, but it seems comments here cannot be corrected/edited, nor can they be deleted. - Oct 08 2018
It would be nice if you could post at least the most common/popular tools as separate services. (Outside KDE Dolphin becomes even crashed when accessing services settings when many services are installed). Mainly for my own confort I have posted a Mount/Unmount tool based on yours: https://www.opendesktop.org/p/1214091/
I hope you are fine with it. If not, please tell me, even by mail (cipricus@gmail.com). - Oct 05 2018
Indeed it works. Sorry for the very late reply. - Oct 05 2018
As I only needed the Mount/unmount option, I have created a service menu based on that, and I have posted it here: https://www.opendesktop.org/p/1214091/. I hope that is fine with you. Thanks for the incredible product!

(I dare suggesting that posting the different services bundled here also as separately-installable services would greatly improve usability and visibility.) - Jun 25 2018
+This is the best Service Menu not just because it is a large collection of different services, but because they really work, unlike many services posted here. - The fact that they have to be installed together is a setback for many users, as many of the services are rather advanced and possibly hard to understand. Even the fact they are so many bloats the experience to a point. Posting also the different services separately and making them installable separately would be very useful I think and would greatly improve usability and visibility. - Jun 25 2018
In case iso files are not properly handled (the service menu does not appear for iso files, as I have noticed in Kubuntu 18.04 with Plasma 5.12.5): `model/x.stl-binary` needs to be added to the Mimetype line in the desktop file. I'm not yet sure whether this is a bug or a new feature. - Jun 25 2018

I have noticed that in Ubuntu 18.04, in order for a Dolphin context service menu to work for iso files, the desktop file needs `model/x.stl-binary` for the `Mimetype` line. I will edit the desktop file and re-upload it. - Jun 25 2018
Refresh Dolphin if needed (F5). In Plasma 5.12 - Kubuntu 18.04, Dolphin is still affected by a bug (https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=387663) where it would not always refresh to show instantly the changes made by another program, and refresh is needed. - After mounting an iso with this script it happened that when selecting again the iso in order to unmount, the option was absent until refreshing with F5. - May 15 2018
For example, if the script is in ~/bin, the Exec line for the action "mount" in this desktop file can be modified as `Exec=iso_manager-mount-image.sh %f` - as the path is not needed in such a case. (And the rest of the command is just to tell you if you lack fuseiso.)
- Feb 13 2018
I think the purpose of a ~/bin folder is that it operates somewhat like usr/local/bin, only is not root. If you put an executable there, it can be run from a desktop file just by name, without the full path. This is not he case with ~/.bin I think. - Feb 13 2018
I have edited the installation instructions, namely:

Copy the file "iso_manager-mount-image.sh" to `~/bin` (if you prefer other location you should edit accordingly the `Exec=` line under ` [Desktop Action mount]` from the file "iso_mounter_unmounter.desktop").
- Feb 13 2018
Glad it works. But no change is needed from my part: my installation instructions say `~/bin` in accordance with the command in `iso_mounter_unmounter.desktop` file that I have uploaded. If you prefer `~/.bin` (or any other path really) instead of `~/bin`, the `.desktop` file needs to be change accordingly. - Feb 13 2018
I have tested by simplifying the mount command: it works with just `whatever/path/to/iso_manager-mount-image.sh %f` - Feb 13 2018
The mount command in the `.desktop` file is exactly the one from KDE-Services except for the path to the `iso_manager-mount-image.sh` script, which I have place in `~bin`. And that script is exactly the same. You could backup your `usr/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus`, install KDE-Services, then remove all desktop files that it installs there excepting `ISO-Image-Tools_servicemenu.desktop`. You could look up the `.sh` script for the way it sets the mounting point. The mounted iso folder appears in the same directory as the iso. - Feb 13 2018
Have you tested KDE-Services? It can be downloaded from downloaded as tar.bz2 archive from https://store.kde.org/p/998464/, unpacked and, by opening a terminal in the resulting folder, it can be installed by running the command `sudo make install`. But it adds a lot of menu entries. - Feb 13 2018
Many details on how I came to this: https://askubuntu.com/a/1005285/47206 - Feb 13 2018
I have tested in Mint 18.3 which is Plasma 5.8 and Ubuntu 16.04. Do you have fuser, fusermount, fuseiso and kdialog ? If yes, possibly other packages are needed that I'm not aware of. - What I could mention is that I have installed (`sudo make install` in the package folder) and then uninstalled (`sudo make uninstall`) KDE-Services. - Feb 13 2018

Indeed. But all you need is to have a 2.x VLC somewhere, and save all programs as a playlist, which then can be opened in VLC 3.x. Here is such a playlist: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1AXgemNjjwenG6Uz7VdKj3JVOr1muFvy2?usp=sharing - May 11 2018

I was able to install in Plasma 5.8 using the install script from the master package, but the dock plasmoid is integrated completely into the panel, not above it like a dock. To make it look like a dock, as in your images, I have to use just the plasmoid on the desktop without the panel. Is there some settings that I am missing? - Oct 20 2016

It is possible.
After the video has started in VLC, start VLSub, put the proper name of the film, and download (see that 'Load and save' is selected in Configs).

An error message may appear saying that the subtitles cannot be saved. Then: 'Click here to open the file'. That will download the subtitles (maybe archived).

This may vary between VLSub versions. A VLC error window may open instead of the error message in the VLSub window. Then, click 'Show config', then 'VLsub working directory' which opens a folder where the subtitle file should be.

of course i might assume your abuse to be the inarticulate expression of a consumer's opinion, but on the other hand i hate to see such distasteful words thrown at a script that i had very much appreciated and waited for. what do you think this is? a fun club? when somebody says here that it works, then it really works, so... - Jun 07 2013
i can confirm it works in my case in both ubuntu and windows 7 with latest VLC - so the problem is with other stuff that comes with your system.

try testing on other computers if you may and try to think twice before making harsh and really stupid allegations. people are here to help each-other, your problem and its solving might be useful to many, try to bring a contribution too - Jun 07 2013
In fact this is provided - the file specifies that

[-- You can set here your default language by replacing nil with your language code (see below)
-- Example:
--~ language = "fre",
--~ language = "ger",
--~ language = "eng",
--~ ...]

So,

[local options = {
language = "all",] - May 17 2013
Great tool. This new version finds even more subtitles (some, which were not found by the older version were found by "Subtitle Finder" addon, but now this sums it all up to the best level)

What about having 'All' instead of 'English' as default search language? - May 17 2013
in fact opensubtitles.org is the only source for both. but they search it differently i guess. usually is subtitle finder that provides more findings. but not always, as i was able to see after a while - Mar 24 2013
thanks - Mar 20 2013
Would it be possible to have 'All' languages as default insted of 'English'? - Mar 19 2013
so, some lua files are opened as text in certain browser: in this case, to save the file, just 'save page as'
