Woof servicemenu for KDE starts a web server that serves the selected file or folder. The served files are easily downloaded with a web browser. After the transfer the program exits. This is a very convenient way to share files with friends. The backend is the excellent program Woof.


Right click on file or folder and select "Actions" --> "Send with Woof"

This will result in the file or folder being served on your computers Ip-address and port number 8080. for example Just point a browser to this address. After the file has been served woof exits. If you are behind a router or firewall the port 8080 have to be forwarded to your computer. Folders will be served in the .tar.gz format.


· Copy "woof" and "send_with_woof.desktop" to ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/
· Make the files executable. ex. "chmod +x woof"
· Restart Konqueror

(If you put woof in any other directory you need to edit the path to the executable in the "send_with_woof.desktop" file)

Developer comments

Woof is written by Simon Budig. With this service menu comes a modified version of Woof. I have only made some very, very limited modifications to allow it to work with Kdialog. The original can be found at:


If you want to use Woof from the command line I recommend that you download the original and put it in your $PATH. The bundled version of Woof will work from the command line but will throw up notifications through kdialog. This is because IANAP (I'm not a programmer), hopefully I learn some python so that future versions of this service menu will interact with the original Woof and not a "hacked" one.
