Thanks. I have no problem opening the app, but the terrible GTK
dialogs for open/save (which I use a lot) are out of place in KDE, and
much less functional that the KDE dialogs. More importantly, they do
not respond to single click, only double click, and my broken hand is
incapable of performing that action.
