You have been subscribed to a public bug:

When I add a service file to my /etc/avahi/services/ folder dolphin does not display them with the zeroconf:/ kio.
I automatically thought that I had done something wrong even though the service files worked in the last release fine so I tested them against the avahi-browse application and they worked fine there so this must be a fault in Dolphin and not the Avahi Zeroconf implementation. This gets a little bit more distorted when I add the ssh service file (a duplicate of the example file from the docs folder) and it displays as a fish service and connects as a fish service but shows up fine in the avahi-browse app mentioned earlier.

Example ssh.service file (That shows as a fish service in Dolphin):

   <name replace-wildcards="yes">Remote Terminal on %h</name>


Example smb.service file (That does bugger all in Dolphin):

  <name replace-wildcards="yes">%h</name>


Please can this be investigated please as it appears to have been borked
