So I thought I'd try out Dolphin. Sounds cuddly. Default KDE filemanager. It must be good, right?

Wrong.

Someone actually sat down one day and thought it would be a good idea to create a filemanager which craps .directory files all over the filesystem you're trying to view.

Why Dolphin? Why?! Why do you hate people so much?

afaik these files (.directory) intended for saving current directory view properties.
You can turn off "Remember view properties for all folders" option and set common view properties for all the directories. It will prevent .directory files creation.

Yeah but you shouldn't have to. A sane FM wouldn't dump all over your filesystem just because you choose custom views. Would you want to use a database manager which altered the data it was supposed to manage?

If Dolphin worked in an art gallery it would gleefully sign all the Monets and Rembrandts with illiterate little crosses of its own to help "manage" their display.

Where's a tuna boat when you need one?
