Looking at Dolphin with Baloo specifically, it seems to look up the metadata of every file in its search domain, even if you're doing a simple file name search. When I trace the file.so process, I see calls to lstat, getxattr and getxattr again for every file, and even for .. entries. These system calls retrieve metadata about the file which is stored in a ...

This is done by udisks. There are two versions of udisks, "udisks" and "udisks2". You have probably installed at least one of them. Both ship with commandline utilities. Both should work when Dolphin works. udisks mounts the filesystems into /media/<label>. $ udisks --mount /dev/sdc1 Mounted /org/freedesktop/UDisks/devices/sdc1 at /media/<label>...

You can add this entry manually: right click on the Places, choose Add Entry, enter this in Location field: recentdocuments:/// and save it. It should be available now in all KDE/Qt file dialogs.

Inspired by this post on the Ubuntu forums, I found out the culprit was the Hardware Abstraction Layer. I ignored the device in question by creating the following file: /usr/local/share/hal/fdi/preprobe/20thirdparty/10-ignore-swap.fdi with the following contents: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <deviceinfo version="0.2"> <device&...

This is unfortunately impossible without hacking on dolphin. The maximum thumbnail size seems to be hard-coded. If you e.g. want to rename files quickly based on the preview of the cover pages of the documents you might find the "Information" toolbar useful. It also displays a thumbnail preview whose maximum size is less restricted and you can enhance it by ...

I think it's not possible. This behavior is hardcoded. When you are opening your Desktop in the way that you showed on first screenshot you are opening location desktop:/ (you can type that address in URI bar in Konqueror or Dolphin to check it). Handler for this pseudoprotcol is KDE component (kioslave) named kio_desktop. When you open normal location ...

Dolphin makes use of the Solid namespace to detect devices. As long as you have the correct drivers installed for your disks, they should still be discovered even after an upgrade to a new version of Fedora. You can use lscpi to check the drivers or have a look at this StackExchange answer for some other tips. Though as far as I know, drivers aren't ...

The best answer to your problem is to add contextual menus for Mount/Unmount in Dolphin, or service menus as they are called in KDE. To do this, you need to: create the folder where the ISO will be mounted. (for this example I will use /mnt/iso) navigate to /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus create a new file with .desktop extension (I used iso.desktop) ...

While this doesn't completely solve the problem raised here, there is an option called -dynroot-sparse in the OpenAFS client these days, which tries to reduce the number of directories that are visible under /afs. That can help avoid processes from trying to traverse all AFS cells in the world just by reading the directories in /afs (but it doesn't prevent ...

Creation time is new to Gnu/Linux (Unix does not traditionally support it: it is hard to come up with a useful use-case). I have just done some research ( https://www.anmolsarma.in/post/linux-file-creation-time/ ). The time line seems to be: support added to some file-systems: 2010 or earlier (I am not sure). support added to the virtual-file-system: ...

Do you have previews enabled? I know that my system reads the current directory, and one level deeper to be able to show the cute mini-icons on the folders indicating the contents. Turning this off should help. Does this happen on EVERY start of dolphin? or just the first one? The system may be building the file-system cache by reading things. ...

Just enter command-name %F into the "Open with" dialogue. The %F parameter is substituted with the list of all selected files.

I recently switched from Debian to Manjaro and from Cinnamon to Mate, but this solution should hopefully apply to all distributions and desktop environments: Firstly, the program "qt5ct" can be used to edit the theme of programs using Qt themes instead of whatever Cinnamon, Mate, etc. use. On Manjaro I installed it with yay qt5ct, on Debian it's probably ...

Edit added on 20200322 relevant to a future version of Dolphin: Dolphin has a new “Duplicate” feature that can be used to quickly create copies of selected items (me: Nate Graham, Dolphin 20.04.0) Source I too feel the need to sometimes copy/paste the same file in its current location. Obviously, the filename has to be modified somewhat. Dolphin does not ...

(Tested on dolphin 18.08.0) To change the icon size: right click on icon bar -> select icon size -> choose a size There is also a global setting, in: kde system settings -> icons -> configure icon size -> Main Toolbar

The shell itself can perform this substitution, avoiding the more expensive fork and exec of an external program. See "parameter expansion" in zshexpn(1) for details. % x=file:///etc/passswd; print ${x#file://} /etc/passswd So in your case perhaps something like % alias -g v='${$(xclip -selection c -o)#file://}' % print -l v /etc/passswd Note that v is a ...

According to the error message cannot create subfolder-name//path/to/md-file/md-file.md the placeholder %u is replaced with an absolute path and a directory subfolder-name/path/to/md-file does not exist. If you want to create a file subfolder-name/md-file.md you can use basename cat %U >> subfolder-name/$(basename "%u")

Dolphin does not seem to be able to use the disconnection methods of the various protocol it uses.

First, this is a prerequesite (at least for me): Remote desktop over SSH reverse tunnel to replace TeamViewer The reverse SSH tunnel looks like this: laptop(SFTP client)--->nat--->middleman<--nat<--desktop(SFTP server) On laptop edit ~/.ssh/config and add this: Host SftpToDesktop HostName localhost Port %p User admin ...

I got it working with these steps: Must use sftp:// not fish:// Must type out the full URI such as sftp://myuser@192.168.1.1:2222/sdcard/path/ Must have a ~/.ssh/config file with the proper values to use a private key file (passwordless login). The config file I posted in my question worked for me. Must have a valid known host key, and there turns out to be ...

You are missing the main default location for user-specific mimetype associations: ~/.config/mimeapps.list or, more generally: $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/mimeapps.list where $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is ~/.config/ by default. But don't feel bad: you are in good company. This location has been the standard for many years, but unfortunately many applications still use the old ...

Actually, I found the fault in the above USERSHARE tdb entry: it was in the ACL. I had set it nullify the user rights by setting: usershare_acl=Everyone:D DOMAIN\user:F 'Everyone' was set to 'Deny'. 'Everyone' includes, in this case, 'User', as well. So, setting 'User' to 'Full' access - or anything else, for that matter - was overruled by 'Everyone's ...

On a typical KDE setup: kcontrol (or your KDE configuration tool of choice) > Default Applications > Workspace Appearance and Behaviour > from there you can change your file associations to be opened by a specific application. This won't necessarily be exact instructions for your OS specifically, it depends on your setup - however generally ...

In Dolphin, just right-click the script and choose "Open With > Other..." and hit the checkbox that says "Run in terminal". You'll need to choose your terminal emulator from the list of software as well. Unfortunately, I think you'll have to tell it to always open .py files the same way if you want it to stick.

I found an other solution for this issue here: QNativeImage: Unable to attach to shared memory segment on KDE QT application Finally I can fix this issue by disabling MITSHM lib. This can be done by adding following line to ~/.profile file. (ie: system env var) QT_X11_NO_MITSHM=1
