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

Posted 04-08-2021 at 01:26 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...

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

Posted 10-19-2020 at 04:58 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...

[SOLVED?] Kdialog ("save file as") extremely slow to show up

Posted 10-08-2019 at 12:15 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

There are plenty of threads around the internet with this problem, not everyone is able to reproduce it, and probably "fixes" don't always work. In my case, I'm not even on KDE/plasma, even though I prefer KDE file managers and dialogs.

What I found that worked for me so far was from here: https://forum.manjaro.org/t/dolphin-...-load/69134/11

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...
