Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

"Show original directory" on Dolphin5, as a Service Menu

Posted 09-11-2016 at 05:29 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

It used to be a native function of Konqueror/Dolphin4, but apparently it's rubbish and should be a service menu, so here's my attempt at it.

Code:
# This is free, open-source, and all that kind of stuff 
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Service
X-KDE-ServiceTypes=KonqPopupMenu/Plugin
MimeType=all/all
Actions=goToRealPath;
ServiceTypes=KonqPopupMenu/Plugin

[solved?] New GTK2 bug? Maybe it's a QtCurve bug. Theme changes randomly

UPDATE: whatever happened before, it seems that now it can be partly solved by simply commenting out the font-related lines in /usr/share/themes/QtCurve/gtk-2.0/kdeglobals (not to be confused with KDE's own file with the same name!).

After a while (after a massive upgrade) the randomness of the thing stopped, the correct theming consistently fails. More evidently fonts, icon theme, and colors (including tooltips' colors). I'm not sure the widget's "design" is also affected,...

"Legacy scrolling". Back then clicking on the scroll bar meant to go about a page up or down, not that you magically know the exact content that is at that absolute point. Also "remove overlay scroll indicators", so the scroll bar is always visible and occupies a definite space, instead of sometimes overlapping content and making it harder to click, as the overlay pops up.
