Description Snehit Sah 2022-01-19 11:47:36 UTC
SUMMARY

KDF currently relies on having Dolphin installed to be able to
open a disk in file explorer. The choice seems to be hardcoded
in source code 

https://invent.kde.org/utilities/kdf/-/blob/master/src/stdoption.cpp#L16

A better way to open local paths might be to use
QUrl::fromLocalFile and pass it to QDesktopServices::openUrl
This will ensure that disk is opened in whichever file manager
is available on user's system, rather than assuming that
Dolphin is always available.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE

Install KDF on a system without Dolphin. In KDF, right click
on a disk and select "Open in File Manager".

OBSERVED RESULT

Nothing happens

EXPECTED RESULT

Disk should open in whichever file manager is available
on user's system.

You can set a file manager in the settings, but yes, it should just open the default one
Comment 2 Nicolas Fella 2022-01-19 23:19:08 UTC
Since you already know what needs to be done, would you like to submit a patch for it?
Comment 3 Snehit Sah 2022-01-20 15:11:09 UTC
Thanks for the acknowledgement about opening default file manager. I'll send a merge request soon.

Add feature to use system default file manager to open drive

Added an option in settings to use system default file manager to
open drives. If selected, KDF will use QDesktopServices to open
disk. If unchecked, KDF will use the previous behaviour of executing
supplied command in settings.
