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.

QDirstat can have Dolphin as file manager, but not with the "&" after the command line

Posted 10-19-2020 at 05:58 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

QDirstat's "open file manager here" fails from the user perspective if you just replace "pcmanfm-qt" to "dolphin" in the command line, even though it says it was "successful." The default line for that setting on the settings GUI has an "&" in the end, and for some reason, it makes Dolphin automatically exit under that circumstance, for some reason, I assume. While it does work on a terminal, on QDirstat it doesn't.

If whatever...
