in reply to Re^3: Open a folder
in thread Open a folder

I'm using kde on opensuse and xdg-open works even in kde. So it might just suffice to check for availability of any of the mentioned programs and call it irrespective of the window manager actually running. It would probably be a 99% solution

    Thanks for the info. I guess it depends on the system in question, perhaps they're lucky and only have to target a specific setup. Failing that I updated my reply with an example of pulling the running window manager from the environment variable, then it's simply a case of catering for each valid response.
