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.

Krusader file manager has a search functionality with a "locate" backend, rather than Baloo or other stuff

Posted 04-08-2021 at 02:26 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Krusader is a midnight-commander-like QT file manager, more fully-featured/Swiss-army-knife than Dolphin, sort of like the KDE3 Konqueror, but with only a single layout profile, I think, unlike Konqueror, which could be toggled from a Krusader-like GUI to something like Dolphin or simpler, besides a PDF reader or a image viewer like Geeqie. How I miss it.

Anyway, if you want to search something with locate and create dozens of symlinks in a single folder for more careful inspection...

After quite a long time and many failed attempts, I've managed to get Dolphin to "see" the trash bin on a partition it missed

For some reason, and I can't fathom what, Dolphin only saw the home's trash and two additional partitions, but missed another one. Even PCManFM-QT was able to see and use that trash partition, while files deleted there wouldn't show up on Dolphin/Konqueror (which wouldn't delete them when emptying), and files over there deleted from D/K would be dumbly moved to the home partition.

I'm sure that besides trying to create brand new Trash folders, I've even tried to copy (preserving...

Opera Presto had the best GUI ever. Ever.

Posted 02-21-2016 at 11:27 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I can't speak anything about the web-rendering part, which seemed at very least okay, in pair with firefox and chrome, if not somewhat better, sometimes. Even there the GUI alone could give it an edge sometimes as it had a button where you could choose to display/download no image at all, only display already cached images, or operate normally. Other browsers may even have that function, but it's hidden deeper in a less customizable GUI.

And customization was so easy and powerfull....
