    Question prefer to use nautlius features instead of dolphin features (kwin/kde)

    how can i get kwin/kde to use the features in nautilus instead of dolphin? i actually like the fact that nautilus doesn't use plasma applets.

    open YaST > Software Manager, in the search box type nautilus, click
    "Enter"...soon, on the right will be a window with lots of stuff in it,
    just left click only once in the box next to "nautilus", when you do
    YaST will pick all the stuff needed to make it work...then click the
    "Accept" button at the bottom..

    well, YaST may throw up a new window asking you if it is ok to install
    _all_ the stuff needed for nautilus to work, agree with that and off you
    go..

    note: you can run all kinds of Gnome apps in KDE...and, once you have
    all the basics of Gnome, then following apps won't reinstall that..

    Unfortunately, Nautilus will try to do things in KDE that it should not do,
    like painting icons. It is not a plain file browser.

    Can be avoided with "nautilus --no-desktop"
