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

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.

ADVERTISEMENTS

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

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.

    Hi, I’m using gnome in linux mint.
    Regarding Dolphin,can you tell me how to enable “select” with single click, instead of “open”
    I’ve looked in control centre/hardware/mouse, but see nothing about changing from single click to double click.

    KDE: Open System Settings -> select “Keyboard & Mouse” -> click Mouse in the left pane -> select “Double-click to open files and folders (select icons on first click)” option.
