Buster:  Konqueror as File Manager

RLewis
I posted the following to the debian-kde list last week and didn't get an
answer to my question about the sidebar, so I thought I'd try here.  Please
keep any follow-ups to debian-usr, thank you.

Regards,
Robert

****************************************************************************

Hello -

I use Konqueror as a file manager in Debian Stretch, but I have noticed the
following changes to Konqueror in Buster that have affected the way it can
be used as a file manager:

.  I cannot open Konqueror with "kfmclient openProfile filemanagement"
.  the profiles section is missing from the Settings drop-down menu
    . Load View Profile
    . Save View Profile As ...
    . Configure View Profiles
.  also missing from the Settings drop-down menu is "Show Sidebar  F9"
    . F9 does not work, and I have not been able to find a way to display
        the Sidebar

Under Konqueror/Help/Konqueror Introduction/Introduction, it says:
Konqueror makes working with and managing your files easy. You can browse
both local and networked folders while enjoying advanced features such as
the powerful sidebar and file previews.

I would appreciate any suggestions how to make Konqueror as a file manager
work the way it has in previous versions, especially having the sidebar.

Thank you.

Regards,
Robert

Thanks for the reply.  I'm still on Stretch, too.  I'll post here if I come
up with a solution.

In the future, please reply to the list, and not directly to me, so others
may benefit from the discussion.

Thank you.

Regards,
Robert

Update about a sidebar for Konqueror

More searching on the web has lead me to this thread:

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=373824

and to comment no. 27.

Using David Faure's suggestion I did the following to create a sidebar:

. launch krunner (alt-F2)
. enter "/"
. click on "Locations Open /"
    . this will open konqueror as file manager
. put a check mark next to "View / Lock to current location"
. do "Window / Split view Left/Right"
. re-size the left pane to look like a sidebar
. from either pane, put a check mark next to "View / Link view"
. go to "File / Session / Save as ..." and save this session

When you click on a folder in the left pane, it will be show up in the right
pane.

Tips:

. Only these two panes are linked, so if you do "Split view Left/Right" from
the right pane, any selection you make in the far left pane will only affect
the pane to its immediate right.

. I suggest you display the bookmarks toolbar and use bookmarks, it's
especially helpful with a split view.

. To launch your file manager
    . go to Application Launcher / Edit Applications...
    . create a New Item in the folder of your choice, e.g. System or
Utilities
    . give it a Name and Description, and select an icon
    . in the Command field, put "konqueror --open-session
<your_saved_session_name>"
    . Save
    . add this new application to Favourites, the panel, or the desktop

. To make a global shortcut
    . go to System Settings / Workspace / Shortcuts / Edit / New / Global
Shortcut / Command/URL
    . give the New Action a name; e.g. KonquerorFM
    . enter a comment in the Comment tab, if you wish
    . enter your shortcut key in the Trigger tab
    . enter the same command in the Action tab that you entered to create
the application
    . click "Apply"


Although this method doesn't replace the full-functioning sidebar of
Konqueror that's in Stretch, it does help, a bit, in Buster.

Robert
