It have been removed because this function is KDE only, do not work under
MacOS and Windows, and cannot be bundled in AppImage.

If Qt5 addd this kind of function in QDesktopService API, why not. This
will be portable everywhere.

A possible work around : Open album in filemanager. Dolphin for ex, can
embed a konsole which will follow current selected directory.

And with 5.5.0, Mario Frank, a new developer work to 100% on this tool (and
