To set Dolphin as default:
xdg-mime default kde4/dolphin.desktop inode/directory
To set Thunar as default:
xdg-mime default Thunar.desktop inode/directory
Run either on the terminal as regular user.
In the dolphin file manager just press the F4 function key and that will open a terminal inside dolphin, in the same directory.
To open a separate terminal window, press Shift+F4; or right-click in the directory contents pane and choose Actions > Open Terminal Here.
Note: As Dolphin is KDE-based the default terminal emulator it launches is Konsole, so if ...
A file manager is software which provides a user interface to assist in the organisation of files.
Every file manager provides basic operations such as to create, open, view, edit, search, rename, move copy, and delete files. However, file managers typically come supplied with sophisticated functionality including network connectivity, directory ...
This is my experience with Gnome 3.18, it would seem to vary based on desktop environment, i.e. Nautilus does on Gnome and Dolphin does on KDE but not the other way round, best bet is use the file manager that came with your desktop.
With Nautilus, it will warn you first, here is the exact message
For Dolphin, the answer was no, it tried to copy a file ...
Slower than other file browsers ?
What other ? Konqueror ? Krusader ?
The Dolphin is the default KDE file manager but you don't need to use it. System Settings > Default Applications > File Manager.

This is a known issue with Dolphin and ECDSA keys. OpenSSH in recent versions have moved to use ECDSA by default over RSA, and this works fine with most implementations that rely on OpenSSH's "known hosts" file.
Dolphin's kio_sftp module uses libssh instead of OpenSSH's own libraries, and that library appears to not support ECDSA keys. The workaround is ...
KDE Service Menus
In KDE-speak a "servicemenu" is a special entry that appears in a
context menu (or other context-based interface) for a file (or for
directory), depending on the type of files that are selected.

You should be able to add a custom host entry in your ~/.ssh/config file, specifying the port, key file, and domain to use. Something like this, modified to have the values you need:
You can make the specialport value in there be whatever you want. Once you ...
Seems like I found the solution to my own question:
Dolphin obviously ignores the [Default Applications] in ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list but uses [Added Associations] in the same file. So the quick way how to change multiple file associations in Dolphin would be to copy all the lines under [Default Applications] (set with xdg-mime) and paste ...
I am using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with unity 7.4.0 (default) . These are my results :
In Nautilus , It shows warning before copying :
Same with Thunar,
But no warning in pcmanfm,
No warning in In dolphin, even in the end!! it just stopps when it realized that there is not enough space.
To show thumbnails the Dolphin will need the thumbnail plug in.

Thank you Palantir! There was indeed a workaround. This is what I did :
sudo apt-get install git build-essential cmake extra-cmake-modules kio-dev pkg-config libavformat-dev libavcodec-dev libswscale-dev
git clone git://anongit.kde.org/ffmpegthumbs
git checkout origin/frameworks
mkdir -p builddir
ffmpegthumbs 4:15.12.3-0ubuntu1 is buggy and unpacks ffmpegthumbs.so to the wrong location. Until the package is fixed a workaround is to link the files to the correct location:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/plugins/* /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins/
This works on my installation of Kubuntu 16.04 LTS. By the way ffmpegthumbs needs kio-extras ...
I don't know why nobody ever answered to this but if you're using the SMB protocol I've got an easy solution to access your local and remote network shares.
Right click on the sidebar on Dolphin
Click on "add entry"
Give it a name (something like "SMB Share")
In the "location" input, type in your SMB server location (e.g.: smb://<ip_address>/folder)

There are several caveats in what you tried to do. I already mentioned the danger introduced by your approach:
Next time nautilus is going to be updated, your dolphin gets overwritten (as your link points there). Same goes for gnome-terminal.
So we figured, this was not a good idea :)
But there are some ways to try working around, so "x" gets run when "...
The Dolphin 17.04 or later has a check:
if uid == 0 then show the "Executing Dolphin as root is not possible." and exit.
You could edit the sources and disable the check. Then the Dolphin will work as before.

How to use dolphin to open folder in firefox
When I installed KDE and Firefox this feature actually worked – I downloaded a file, clicked on “open containing folder”, and Dolphin would happily pop with the respective folder open.
However, when I installed a few more apps, Firefox started ...
With root privileges, please change in the following file:
I figured this out in a long search for the right configuration file.
I also tried changing it in .local/share/... but it did not work that way for me.
The KDE is using the desktop files to add the "open with" options. To add or edit the desktop files use the KDE Menu Editor.
The default application and the order of the applications is set with the File Associations. System Settings > File Associations.
