Change default Nautilus to dolphin kde4

Postby evkefalas on Thu Jan 17, 2008 11:14 am

Hi
I am one happy linux mint user, having tried many distros
i think this is by far the most, stable fun and complete to work with

There is a new version of dolphin kde4 out , also in the synaptics package manager of linux mint
(note not the normal dolphin, the second package dolphin kde4)

i have to say is a fantastic file manager, light nice and tidy but also flexible
for those who haven't tried it i do really recommend it!

My problem is that i want to set it as a default file manager in mint
there are instructions on the web how to change default to other file managers, like thunar
http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/nonautilusplease
but not for dolphin kde4

Can anyone please help?
Many Thanks

gksudo "gedit /etc/apt/sources.list"
(but i think normal repositories should include it too)
gives:
