After one of the recent upgrades of my Debian Testing the default file manager in KDE switched from Dolphin to Konqueror for some reason. How can I switch it back?
Spare a thought for old time stalwarts like Konqueror. Many great features have been stripped out but it's still a a great file manager (and a decent browser) even if Dolphin has been promoted as the default file manager of the KDE desktop. Back in the day, Konqueror was able to handle lots of media without having to open a separate application.
When it comes to file managers, the choices can be made from a very wide range, from simple, minimalist ones like Thunar up more feature-rich ones like Konqueror and GNOME Commander, or the console ones like Midnight Commander.
If you are looking for a somewhat different approach then how Dolphin or Konqueror behave, then give Krusader a try.

The concept of the right-click context menu has been around since forever but you don't have to be content with the defaults that come with your software, especially file managers. KDE's Dolphin and Konqueror are no exceptions.
I'm trying to find a way of looking at my list of mp3, flac, ogg music files for the bitrate on each one. I was hoping that my default file manager of Nautilus would allow me to add a separate column to display it for each file. It does not.
I have since tried - Thunar, Pcmanfm, Dolphin, Krusdaer, Konqueror looking for the above capability - I can't seem to find it.
