I've been using Debian Stretch with KDE Plasma for years. Now I upgraded to Buster, with KDE Plasma 5.14.5.
When I want to save a file, e.g. a download, the kdialog window no longer shows previous save locations, except the very last one and other fixed locations (root, home and Desktop paths).
I can see in several config files, like $HOME/.kde/share/config/okularrc:
[KFileDialog Settings] Recent URLs[$e]=/incredible/,$HOME/cit/tesis/,/tmp/,$HOME/Documentos/,/hulk/coro
And also in kdialogrc and kdeglobals.
However for some reason, when I open the dialog in Okular, the recent URLs listed in those configuration files are not present.
In addition, in okularrc for instance, there is another section:
[Recent Dirs] okular[$e]=file:///tmp/,file://$HOME/Documentos/,$HOME/
which neither seems to be used. It doesn't have any effect on the dialog.
This was very useful, any idea where can I configure, or what should I do to have this feature back?
