    Angry One-click double-clicking in Dolphin

    Heya,

    Is there a way to tame the clicking speed in Dolphin? Every time I click on an icon to select it (yes, it's set to 'One click selects, Double click opens/runs') it gets opened or its default application gets launched. Only way I seem to be able to select items without activating them is by dragging a lasso around them, which is mighty unproductive.

    Thunar and PCManFM do not shew this behaviour: the single click selects in those programs, as it should be.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Assuming single click you can select multiples by clicking the top left corner of the icon/name this puts a + on the icon and it joins any other icons you may have selected. Don't know how it works with double click selected.

    Only for information: the Mouse Settings in the KDE System Settings:
    <https://docs.kde.org/stable5/en/kde-...use/index.html>
    Double-click to open files and folders (select icons on first click)
    If this option is not checked, icons/files will be opened with a single click of the left mouse-button. This default behavior is consistent with what you would expect when you click links in most web browsers. If checked however, icons/files will be opened with a double click, while a single click will only select the icon or file. This is the behavior you may know from other desktops or operating systems.

    Single-click to open files and folders
    This is the default setting. Clicking once on an icon will open it. To select you can drag around the icon(s) or Ctrl+Right click, or simply click and hold to drag it.

    Also, the KDE documentation for Dolphin:

    Is this a Mouse or Touchpad issue?

    On this Leap 42.2 system (Desktop, Mouse, no Touchpad) I can't reproduce the reported issue -- "Double-click to open" and "Single-click to open" both behave as documented by the KDE folks.

    This behaviour is valid for both hardware (mouse) settings -- regardless of "single-click" or "double-click" to open . . .

    This did it, thanks! Yes, it was set to open with single click, which was overriding the settings in Dolphin.

    Thanks again to all.
