Websites uploading with dolphin, which is not on my computer!

When I upload a file, say to this forum, this pops up:

I have removed dolphin, it's not in synaptic

And I have my KDE default file manager not as dolphin but as files (I am using the Zorin desktop and have kde installed)

How do I make this open (in Vivaldi) with the default files app?


sudo apt-get purge dolphin 
sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove dolphin 

In the terminal, If this does not return anything. It means Dolphin is not Installed.

Yet when I go to add images,

How can I get the files app, default on Zorin, to open?
(This one:)

Wait... firefox is opening the correct app. It's vivaldi... Huh?

You got some Updates There, Run

sudo apt upgrade

Also Try,

rm ~/.config/dolphinrc
rm -rf ~/.local/share/dolphin

Thunar, File Manager

That's the name? I- wait isn't Thunar something else?

Wait, is Thunar the one that Vivaldi is opening?

Also, in some folders when I click, it says

This might be because it's a kden app? IDk

Did you installed baloo search with Dolphin?

Yes, That's It.

No, I just installed full KDE plasma and stuff with it (I was curious), removed it, reinstalled it to fix something that it broke, and left it there without touching


balooctl disable
sudo apt install -s dolphin
sudo apt remove --purge libkf5balooengine5
rm -rf .local/share/baloo/

sudo apt install -s dolphin - didn't work yet
sudo apt remove --purge libkf5balooengine5: didn't work yet

Ye thundar is still opening. Maybe it's a vivaldi problem?

Wait, I Found Something.

maybe I'll end up purging KDE? this... is annoying. 'Specially because Thundar is kind of broken. What would you recommend I do?

Uh- oh

Crtl Alt T just opened Konsole

If we are trying to go towards removing something, I would recommend to remove Vivaldi and switching it with brave. if the Problem Persists you can remove KDE :wink:

To Remove Vivaldi

sudo apt-get --purge remove vivaldi-stable
rm -i -rv ~/.cache/vivaldi ~/.local/lib/vivaldi ~/.config/vivaldi
sudo apt autoremove

To Install Brave

sudo apt install apt-transport-https curl

sudo curl -fsSLo /usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg

echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg arch=amd64] stable main"|sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list

sudo apt update

sudo apt install brave-browser

I have a very customized vivaldi setup no browser could ever come close to (vertical tabs, no new tab button, web panel, etc.)

I'm going to try purging KDE
