"Open File Manager Here" from QDirStat doesn't work
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When I open QDirStat, and right-click a file in the file list, or right-click a file's box in the visualization below, there is an option to open a file manager at the location of the file. However, it doesn't work, at least not in Solus. Not sure if this is a bug specific to Solus or it's an issue with QDirStat, but I don't have another Linux distro to test this with. Could someone else test?

It's not a bug, just read the manual

Which desktop is used is determined by the $XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP environment variable. Users can override this with the $QDIRSTAT_DESKTOP environment variable, > so you can get, say, the Xfce terminal or file manager despite currently running KDE if you set

export QDIRSTAT_DESKTOP="Xfce"

Of course, you can still simply use your favourite file manager if you simply change %filemanager in the default "Open File Manager Here" cleanup action to the command to start it.

%filemanager : File manager application of the current desktop; one of "konqueror", "nautilus", "thunar", "pcmanfm". The fallback is "xdg-open".

Perhaps we can patch in the budgie XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP to provide a default

Also, probably fix kde to be dolphin and not konqueror

"Open File manager Here" option or "Ctrl + F" is working fine in Budgie Desktop.
"Open Terminal Here" option or "Ctrl + T" is also working fine. I think this task should be closed.
Tested with qdirstat 1.6.1 and 1.7.
