GTK3 media players do not show folders before files in KDE

For a few days I've been looking for an alternative to Audacious because it mixes folders and files instead of listing folders first in KDE.

Now trying DeadBeef I just noticed that the problem is not Audacious but GTK3. Do you know what is the reason and whether it has a fix?

if this is Kali then what version ?
1.0.7 is current

also Kali is a VERY "special purpose" distro and NOT repeat NOT!!!!! a good everyday operating system
you can NOT!!!!!!!!! mix the kali and Ubuntu repos
you MUST!!!!!! use the kali repos or you will break the system

to REPEAT!!!!
Kali is NOT a good everyday OS

install it to a encrypted usb with persistence and use it LIKE it is intended to be used

I'm wondering what are you talking about Kali LOL.

Btw, it's fixed. Need to use dconf to change the gtk property of sorting folders first

My guess is that he mentioned Kali because your mini-profile shows Distribution: Jessie / Kali
