How to cancle cutting-mode in Dolphin?

Hello,

does anyone know, how to do that?

If cut a file or folder in Dolphin in order to paste it somewhere else and suddenly realize that I don't want to do that any more, I don't see any way to stop the cutting-mode except copying/cutting something else or pasting it and renaming it.

Thanks in advance,

this command, a bit extreme, will clear the entire clipboard history and the "paste file" will be grayed out
Code: Select all
qdbus org.kde.klipper /klipper clearClipboardHistory


the following I'm guessing should work for just the current entry in the clipboard but it doesn't in my tests, no error is given but the nothing seems to happen
Code: Select all
qdbus org.kde.klipper /klipper clearClipboardContents


this command sets current to a space but doesn't clear the "paste file" from being enabled in right click just changes the selected file to a space
Code: Select all
 qdbus org.kde.klipper /klipper setClipboardContents  " "

I think, this is a very basic function and it should be made easier to access. Don't you agree?

I think it would be an appropriate option in configure klipper -> shortcuts

if you think this is needed you should open a brainstorm thread to demonstrate that there are others who also feel the same

did the clearClipboarContents not work for you also? if you works I would think you could create your own shortcut in systemsettings

I think, I'll do that, open a brainstorm thread.

However, the command google01103 mentioned, does not work for me. In fact, on applying the cmd, in Dolphin the file is unhighlighted for a second and then it's highlighted again and it stays in the clipboard.

you can also use xclip to set the current clipboard contents to null, it won't disable the "paste file" option but nothing will happen if you inadvertently click paste
Code: Select all
xclip -i /dev/null
