Re: [kde] using remote URL instead of cache

I have created a wrapper script around an application so that it can

The .desktop file contains this line:
Exec=my-application %U
indicating that this application can handle remote URLs. Nevertheless,
when I open a remote file in dolphin with my application, the remote
file is first downloaded to /var/tmp/kdecache-barna/... and this local
file is given to my application, instead of the original remote URL. Can
I change this behaviour somehow?

Hmm, you are right that %U should have the desired effect.
Can you try %u as well, i.e. indicating support for one URL?
