I can find it in the software center but its version is pretty old(still 2016). How can I get the latest version on Ubuntu 18.04.
Also want to know is there any possibility to apply gtk theme on dolphin?

  • What do you see with apt policy dolphin? Keep in mind installing dolphin will pull in a lot of dependencies. Also, qt-based apps may not look "native" in GNOME-based systems as you seem to know.

  • That is the version I have in Kubuntu 18.04. So that's what you'll get now.

    Yes, but then you'll need to switch to Arch Linux or Manjaro or other rolling releases or KDE Neon Bionic when that's ready ;)

Newer Dolphin may be obtained from KDE FlatPak repository:

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists kdeapps --from https://distribute.kde.org/kdeapps.flatpakrepo
flatpak install kdeapps org.kde.dolphin

The command above will download org.kde.Platform/x86_64/5.11 (about 332 Mb), org.kde.dolphin/x86_64/master and org.kde.dolphin.Locale/x86_64/master. Logout from your account and login back. Then search in dash for Dolphin and launch it:

Dolphin 18.11.70 on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS GNOME

(you got Dolphin 18.11.70 running on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS).

Theoretically speaking you can get all KDE applications as FlatPak with help of KDE Plasma Discover or with flatpak install kdeapps org.kde. TabTaby.
