I have never liked the file size view of Konqueror. To me it is a cluttered mess.
Would not jdiskreport work for you? A slackbuild is available here

'ncdu' might be helpful, it can delete the folders (or files) too if needed. I like it.

Xfce Screensaver 0.1.0

https://bluesabre.org/2018/10/15/xfc...-1-0-released/

Quote:
....Xfce Screensaver is a screen saver and locker that aims to have simple, sane, secure defaults and be well integrated with the Xfce desktop.

It is a port of MATE Screensaver, itself a port of GNOME Screensaver. It has been tightly integrated with the Xfce desktop, utilizing Xfce libraries and the Xfconf configuration backend.....
You can read all about it at the link above the quote box.

This is alpha quality, so be cautious.

Recoll is by far the most powerful desktop search application out there. Plays nicely with Xfce too.

in my experience it does not play nice with Xfce's PowerManager. They have redundant functions, like turning of the screen, etc. I just don't use a screensaver on my laptop, relying only on the power manager to turn off my screen.

Maybe they should've made the power manager integrate better with Xscreensaver, though...

Choice is good. XScreenSaver's lock screen is dang ugly in my opinion, and you can't change it.

Is there an SBo? I thought XScreensaver was an official package, meaning it wouldn't get upgraded till 15.0
