[This is a Feature Request]
[Kubuntu Jaunty/KDE 4.2.2 - repository installs]

The 'KDE Dæmon' "Running out of diskspace" warning dialog presently has
three options available:

* Open Konqueror (presumably so I can delete some stuff and free up disk space)
* Ignore this warning
* Disable this warning

I would like a fourth capability here, possibly as a sub-option within
the 'Ignore this Warning' option:

* Ignore/Suppress this warning for [insert time period]

Use case:
I am seeing that warning message repeatedly during the course of today.  This evening when I would shut down/reboot the machine anyway I will extend the partition that contains my home directory.  During the day though I would like it if my laptop stopped continually bugging me for something I already know about and plan to fix.

I do not want to 'Disable this Warning' since that would mean that
(after today, after I have extended the partition and solved the
problem) I won't see the warning should I begin running out of space
again (say a few months down the line).  I just want to suppress the
warning for 24 hours.

Current workaround:
I found on this thread:

that this warning is configured in:


I will hit the 'disable this warning' option for now and then (this
evening) remove the line in that config file that recorded that I
disabled the warning.  It would be nice if there was a GUI for this
though - I certainly can't find one.
