Essential System Tools: Krusader – KDE file manager

Last Updated on May 28, 2022

Custom commands

Krusader can be extended with custom add-ons called User Actions.

User Actions are a way to call external programs with variable parameters.

There are a few example User Actions provided which will help you get started. And KDE’s store offers, at the time of writing, 45 community created add-ons, which help to illustrate the possibilities.

I have used Krusader in the past. The only reason that I have it installed now is because of the removal of root functions from Dolphin! I always have a separate data partition on my computers. When doing a fresh install, or a re-install, I create the data partition, but is is created as being owned by root, not my user. In the past, Dolphin had the ability to allow me to change the ownership of a directory or partition. However, the author of Dolphin made the stupid mistake of removing that functionality. Now I run Krusader as root to change properties when I need to.

GUI software should *not* be run as root. It’s simply not secure. Even if you are happy to run that security risk, it’s only right and proper that software developers make the right decisions for the majority.

Several years have passed since that article was written, situation is better, although (for example, for the keditbookmarks case) we still can see on (for example) packages.ubuntu.com/lunar/krusader some suggested and recommended packages that Krusader may need to use.
