Dolphin does not show the OS partitions by default ....... it does show all other partitions attached to the system in the left panel.
Ok this is basically what I had found in my searching. Is their anyway to get dolphin to show these partitions? I just find it easier to find things when I know I am starting at the base of the partition. I did find a setting in Dolphin to show the remaining available space in the home folder. So that helps some. But I'd still like to see all drives in the places menu. Basically its just easier for me to navigate.
You can use df in a terminal to see the usage of all mounted partitions ....... or if you prefer a GUI you can use kdf in the terminal to launch KDiskFree.
I like guis. I come from the Windows world and use Windows 99% of the time due to proprietary software I need for work. But I got my wife converted over to PCLOS in 2007. She uses it 90% of the time. She only needs windows for printing some coupons that use propreitary print drivers in windows. Anyway, I did find kdiskfree and that helps to see what I have as well.
I just miss the ability to right click on the drive in the browser to see what I have available and being able to start at the root of each drive while searching for files.
If you think of anything else let me know. Thanks to everyone.
