Our email delivery system is powered by feedburner and they had some problem as a result there were no email update sent in last 2-3 days. However, feedburner restarted the polling process; starting now, any feed changes not yet delivered via email should be detected and delivered, albeit up to three days late, and from this point forward on your regularly scheduled window.

Also, thanks to readers' feedback print functionality on our site is restored. You can now get print view instantly. This was due to incomparability wordpress plugin issue. We regret this error!

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any more problems.

Dolphin is a file manager for KDE focusing on usability. The KDE 3 version of Dolphin is in beta stage, but provides already most features for daily usage. Currently Dolphin gets ported for KDE 4.0. I really liked its simplicity.

The main features of Dolphin are:

* Navigation bar for URLs, which allows to navigate quickly through the file hierarchy.

* View properties are remembered for each folder.

* Split of views is supported.

* Network transparency.

* Undo/redo functionality.

* Renaming of a variable number of selected items in one step and much more

Download of the day: Dolphin File Manager for KDE Linux Desktop Picture

Install dolphin

Debian / Ubuntu Linux user, type:
$ sudo apt-get install dolphin

To start dolphin start KDE or type:
$ dolphin &

From the man page:

dolphin is not intended to be a competitor to Konqueror, the default KDE file manager: Konqueror acts as universal viewer being able to show HTML pages, text documents, directories and a lot more, whereas dolphin focuses on being only a file manager. This approach allows to optimize the user interface for the task of file management.
