  I believe it will be fine. https://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable/GtkFileChooserDialog.html GtkFileChooserDialog has a `gtk_file_chooser_set_do_overwrite_confirmation` (since 2005's gtk 2.8) so I would expect QFileDialog to use this feature.
  So given GNOME, XFCE and MATE uses gtk >= 2.8, I don't foresee an issue on those DE.
  Also bug https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-11539 mentions it works under GNOME at least.
  On the QFileDialog side, I wish it would be better documented : https://doc.qt.io/archives/qt-4.8/qfiledialog.html#details mentioned GNOME and KDE but not anymore in qt5 stable documentation https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qfiledialog.html#details
