[Bug 69166] hiding most files without informing user or option to disable
kubuntu at uhn-noc.net.ru

Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: kubuntu-default-settings
For reasons unknown, kubuntu-default-settings is set to hide pretty much
the entire system except home dir and /media from the user by default.
There appears to be no option to disable this unwanted behaviour
anywhere, nor is any information given to the user about this "feature"
at all. This setting is highly annoying, and serves no real world
purpose since a normal user cannot destroy the system in linux (unlike
in windoze from where this seems to be copied).
The only way I've found so far to get a clean view of my system is to
(re)move /etc/kubuntu-default-settings/hidden-root, requiring the user
to make changes to the system with root access (which, in contrast,
could result in serious damage!).
