How To Install Dolphin File Manager On Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Dolphin is the file manager and is an integral part of KDE. Even Konqueror uses Dolphin in its file management. Unlike Konqueror, Dolphin specializes in file management and was specifically developed with ease of use in mind.

It incorporates a new concept to navigate faster and more precisely with the navigation bar. For this purpose, a so-called breadcrumb address bar is used. Instead of representing the full path, only each waypoint from one of the places is displayed as a button. By clicking on one of the buttons, you can directly access the folder. So you can go very quickly from a subfolder to a superfolder.
