Ubuntu – How to undo “Do not ask again” for running executable files in Dolphin (Kubuntu)


I am using Kubuntu 20.04, but the question probably also applies to older versions.

When clicking on a .sh file in Dolphin (File Manager), I got a pop-up screen with the following text:

What do you wish to do with this executable file?
☐ Do not ask again
Open Execute Cancel

I choose "Execute" and checked "Do not ask again".
How do I undo this, so I get the pop-up screen again?

Best Answer

  • Settings > Configure Dolphin > General > Confirmations > When opening an executable file

    It may not show the state correctly but on applying changes it should set the state to the selected value.
