    Default Dolphin - option to run executable text files in terminal

    Running openSUSE 12.3
    Switching back to KDE after using Gnome since SuSE 10.1

    I do a lot of video/audio processing using shell scripts that I constantly edit and then run.

    In Nautilus there is an option to have it ask me whether I want to Display, Run in Terminal or Run an executable text file.
    I cannot find an option like that in Dolphin.

    Does that option exist in Dolphin?
    If so, where can I find it?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    i don't know how to do what you ask in Dolphin....but, if installed
    along with the 'basic' gnome packages, it is very possible to run
    Nautilus in KDE, so . . .

    try it:
    -hold down left Alt
    -momentarily press F2
    -in the resulting blank (top center) type nautilus
    -press enter

    if you do not have it installed, just ask how...

    The latest Nautilus may not run well in KDE as one of the menus dangles from the *top* panel.
    Yes it is weird.

    Default Re: Dolphin - option to run executable text files in terminal

    I have both KDE and Gnome installed.
    I have been switching back and forth trying to find a setup that I like and fits my needs.

    I just tried Nautilus under KDE. Yes it's weird, but it behaves more the way I prefer under KDE than under Gnome.
    However, I'm strongly leaning towards KDE. I really find Nautilus under Gnome to be a frustrating and cumbersome file manager.

    I have figured out how to get the Jacksum scripts integrated into Dolphin under KDE4.
    If I can create a service menu to mimic this "Run in Terminal" Nautilus feature in Dolphin, then I would be happy.

    I used KDE with SuSE 9.2 and 9.3.
    I switched to Gnome for 10.1 and really liked its looks and features.
    I think that Gnome under 11.4 was really my favourite, by far.
    Gnome under 12.1 was a bit frustrating until I customized it.
    The new Nautilus just kills Gnome for me.
    Too bad, because I generally prefer the appearance of Gnome over KDE.


    dd - I like your caveat!
