Hi All

I work in a team (windows and linux) which develop programs using Qt for both 
systems. One of the windows team has created a functionality which opens the 
file browser (explorer) to browse through files. She uses

explorer c:\mydir

What is a linux equivalent for doing a similar thing that will work in both 
KDE and GNOME (and perhaps also XFCE or other window managers)?
