Although I do not see a tree view, I find that dolphin as offered in
kubuntu to date is more useful than it first appeared, and I will not
go back to konquerer again unless for occasional use.
I have set my dolphin for details, and I can easily see the full
location, even though, like you, I have not got quite the same options.
My settings are
(optional click on the Browse/Edit Location button which is just to
the left of the Home icon, (just above the Name Heading)).
View>left sidebar (only)
If I am doing simple file transfers I use the split screen.
I was initially dismayed at being presented with dolphin, but I stayed
with it to try to find out why it had been introduced. I know now. It
is a simple, fairly lightweight app which can be used with minimum
I am happy with Dolphin an dI trust it will remain a simple lean app.
