|File manajer khusus dengan beberapa kemampuan tersembunyi|
Sekilas tampak seperti sebuah file manajer sederhana, tetapi sebenarnya Dolphin memiliki banyak kemampuan. Beberapa fitur yang dimiliki Dolphin adalah:
:: * Melihat atribut dapat disetel (dan diingat) secara independen untuk setiap jendela :: * Tabbed browsing :: * Dapat menggunakan panel informasi ekstra di sebelah kanan :: * Dapat juga mensetting agar informasi atribut penting ditampilkan di jendela :: * Navigasi dengan lebih cepat dengan menggunakan 'breadcrumb' :: * Tabel navigasi dapat diedit cukup dengan satu klik saja :: * Untuk menggunakan navigasi model lama tambahakan panel folder :: * Menampilkan jendela terminal pada direktori yang sedang Anda jelajah :: * Banyak fungsi yang dapat dikendalikan oleh jalan pintas di keyboard
Dolphin is a file manager focusing on usability. When reading the term Usability people often assume that the focus is on newbies and only basic features are offered. This assumption is wrong.
Focusing on usability means that features are discoverable and efficient to use. The feature set is defined indirectly by the target user group of Dolphin:
Not part of the target user group of Dolphin are Fred and Jeff:
This does not mean that Fred or Jeff cannot work with Dolphin. But there might be features and concepts of Dolphin that overburden Fred. Also Jeff might miss some features which are a must-have for his daily work.
Before a feature is added in Dolphin, it is checked whether the feature is mandatory for the target user group. If this is not the case, then this does not mean that the feature cannot be added; first it must be clarified whether the feature might be non-intrusive, so that it adds value for users outside the primary target user group of Dolphin. Non-intrusive is mainly related to the user interface. A feature that adds a lot of clutter to the main menu, context menus or toolbar might harm the target user group. In this case the feature will not be added.
A good example of a feature that is non-intrusive is the embedded terminal in Dolphin. It only requires one entry inside a sub menu, but adds great value for Jeff, who is not part of the target user group.
Options are mandatory as the user "average Joe" does not exist. Still it is not the goal of Dolphin offering options for all kind of things. Again the focus is on the possible needs of the target user group. Each additional option makes it harder finding other options, so the same rules for features are applied to options too.
Problem: Dolphin's menu entriesand/or don't have any options. Nepomuk is enabled in System Settings.
Problem: When I choose the application to open a specific filetype with, it seems to affect other filetypes too. It’s like Dolphin cannot tell the difference between the two different filetypes.
Problem: Dolphin's Find File service doesn't find files you know are on your computer.
