Getting Dolphin Flatpak to function as if it were installed in Plasma
I was just wondering if it was possible to be able to get the Dolphin Flatpak to function as if it were installed in Plasma itself.
I tried using the application “Flatseal” to allow permissions but have not really been successful, noticed couple things not working.
I basically tried turning on all permissions, not sure if anything else can be done, I can see there are some options to select specific paths for certain items but do not know enough about those parameters to test them out.
A few things I noticed were….
1.) Some context menu items missing
2.) No “open” / “open with” ability to set default programs (I am aware that if a program is opened three times then Dolphins applies this but would rather be able to set manually)
3.) Search tool does not generate any results
I am sure Flatpak has limitations, but was really hoping for a seamless, full integration feel to Dolphin Flatpak if possible.
I am really looking to be able to access new features that the new versions make available.
Also was hoping to share quite a few feature requests to be added to the program.
Unfortunately in Linux, even if developers actually decide to add features you request (which is rare as it is), by the time they are coded and then added to the program, still have to wait a couple years on top of that to actually be able to enjoy them.
So two options, wait three or four years for new features, or use a Flatpak and maybe get newer features slightly earlier (but they don’t seem to work well with file managers unfortunately, again unless I am overlooking something?)
If Flatpak versions do not work well, would be great to see Dolphin offered in a standalone / portable version as some Linux programs come in. Don’t imagine that would be a route that KDE / Dolphin would want to take, also don’t know how many users would want something like this.
Anyways, if anyone has any information please share
Also can someone tell me if there is a website that shows the changes made to each version of Dolphin.
I see there are lists of the Dolphin version numbers as well as the dates they come out but have been able to find an actual list of changes / fixes made in each new version.
