I went through the Dolphin settings and set everything up to my liking, then proceeded to to set the individual view settings for my folders. After setting a particulars folder individual view settings I would press F* to hide the .directory file, but in Dolphin in Garuda that is doing nothing. Any idea why this is the case in Garuda? Thanks
Make sure you don’t have any conflicting keybindings.
And where would I find it at?
System settings > shortcuts
With everything in there would it be easier to figure out what the function is actually called and search for it? I mean I’ll be searching all those all day to find one linked to F8.
OK get a reply from the KDE forums. Looks like one or more of the devs for Manjaro must of created and added F8 for hiding files on a perfolder basis, cause according to KDE it’s actually Ctrl+H. And yes works like a charm.
That is the standard key combo for all file browser I know.
How long you use Linux?
I never use F8.
You can also activate the button like that
To be honest I nevr thought about hiding the .directory file until I accidentally hit F8 in Msanjaro, so no clue about Crtl+H in the 2+ years I’ve been back on Linux. Thanks for the suggestion on the toolbar button but I already have enough on there as it is.
I JUST finished adding the last of my programs except for Emby(waiting for a link to a tut for copying my database from Manjaro to Garuda) and I’m still simply floored by the shear speed of the OS. Nothing lags what so ever. The few things I posted here about were minor issues compared to getting Manjaro this far. I noticed more than a few little things I always end adding or tweaking after the install you guys already took care of. That’s DAMN nice. Thank you and all involved again for what is simply a fantastic OS.
Please do not compare any settings or files with Manjaro,
Manjaro does to much blind leading the Blind changing conf folders standard key-binds etc., to make itself incompatible. Lol
