When you say, 'open the menu'...?I wasn't impressed with lxqt. No major problems, but it didn't feel particularly light to me. I preferred the older lxde. Plasma's a nice desktop, but it's a bit like flying a plane. Lots and lots of options, and not always where I expect them. Your description of showing hidden files doesn't sound right though. Should just be open the menu, and check the [Show Hidden Files] checkbox. Similar to Thunar at least.
Bear in mind I customised the toolbar only by adding 'show hidden files' and 'configure dolphin'.
Beneath the menu I opened is the back/forward buttons, then icon/compact/details view/'sort by' options.
- edit - hold the bloody phone.... see that space to the right of 'configure dolphin'... that apparently is a general purpose dolphin menu with no icon or text to identify it!
- edit 2 - I've just played with kubuntu in a VM, which had the same problem to begin with, but I think the button is blank because the icon theme pack I picked (one that kubuntu comes with be aware, 'ubuntu mono light'), has no icon for that button, so it's blank. <facepalm> The only icon packs which appear to work correctly in this respect are Breeze and Breeze Dark, but their icon packs suck
