Shift + F4 does not open folder on fish terminal

I have been used to open any folder, e.g., /home/usr/my_folder, and press shit+F4, fish terminal would appear immediately as if I had pressed ctrl+alt+t and typed cd /home/usr/my_folder and this used to save me a lot of time.

Since I used pacman -Syu the command shift+F4 seems to be triggered, it seems like the OS is trying to open fish terminal, but it does not open.

At this screenshot you can see what happens. This icon close to the pointer appears when I press shift+F4, but fish does not open.

But if I right click on the folder, click on administrative actions and then click on open this folder on terminal, it works!

Very strange, I reinstalled dolphin and fish, but the issue persists.

ctrl+alt+t still works as expected, but shift+F4 on dolphin does not and "opening folder on terminal as admin" works

What is output of

pacman -Ss kinit

Are you sure this is happening since the last update? What was updated?
Maybe you could try restoring the latest working snapshot...

Not completely sure, I would say 85% certainty
Hundreds of things were updated and it already had caused me a lot of trouble, I would not like to mess up with it again >.<
Some time passed since I've done it so I would not like to restore to that old state again, but yes, since that day shift+F4 is not working as expected

It's bug in dolphin itself. See

I would suggest asking the question on KDE forums instead.

Kinit is installed for me. I tried reinstalling it, but nothing changed.
Following the suggestion from the other guy on this topic, I

I created a file called open_konsole_here.desktop at ~/.local/share/kservices5/ServiceMenus with this content

Actions=konsole;
Icon=utilities-terminal
MimeType=inode/directory;
Type=Service
Version=1.0
X-KDE-Priority=TopLevel
X-KDE-ServiceTypes=KonqPopupMenu/Plugin
X-KDE-AuthorizeAction=shell_access

[Desktop Action konsole]
TryExec=konsole
Exec=konsole --workdir %f
Icon=utilities-terminal
Name=Open Konsole here

Rebooted computer but the problem persists.

Thanks for your help I will keep searching for a solution for a while and I will ask a question there if I do not find any.

kinit has never been removed from my system, do you really think kinit that is causing the issue here?

  • Ctrl+alt+t
  • Type dolphin
  • From dolphin, right click + “open Konsole here” works
  • There is no error in the konsole I used to open dolphin

If I press shift+F4 nothing happens lol, but right click + open terminal works

Maybe not. But I am sure that it is something with KDE. And I am not KDE expert tbh.

Iirc we did in fact add kinit to our package list because of this bug, it has been known for quite some time now :eyes:

Shift+F4, WOW thanks for the shortcut :slight_smile: It works and will come in handy.

I'm starting to like Linux shortcuts.
