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.
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.

Even when I enable the hidden files option, cannot see them. I close the file manager and reopen the folder again, no luck. The only way I see the files is move the files to another folder through terminal. Then I can see them.
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.
The Dolphin file manager crashes on me randomly. It does not seem to be connected to any particular operation, but just "goes away" with no warning & nothing in the system logs. Starting Dolphin in a terminal window gives nothing upon crashing, just the prompt comes back (so far, anyway.)
I tried Dolphin browser out because I can't seem to find a way to force the default browser not to go to the mobile versions of websites.
(I find the settings/request desktop site to mostly do nothing at all)
On dolphin I can set the suer agent to desktop, and do exactly as I want.
