KDE device notifier and Konqueror/Dolphin file manager

This may seem a simple issue, but it took me a while to find why “Open with File Manager” on the device manager opened up the Konqueror file manager instead of Dolphin…

To change it’s easy. Just go to System Settings and Default Aplications. Choose File Manager, and there choose your File Manager of preference.

That’s it.

Firefox Open Download Directory Action on KDE/KUbuntu

I had a bit of a strange issue with FireFox and Kde 4.7 on Kubuntu 11.X.

After downloading a file with Firefox, on the Dowloads Firefox windows, right clicking the downloaded file for the Open Download Directory action, instead of opening the Dolphin File Manager, it opened the KdeSVN application… Very, very annoying.

To solve this you need to reconfigure KDE, probably due to the fact that KDESvn was installed:

1) Goto System Settings
2) Select Default Applications
3) Select FileManagers
4) Deselect and select Dolphin
5) Apply
6) Restart Firefox

It should work now.
