Links in PCManFM-Qt [SOLVED]

I created a symlink with PCManFM-Qt and when I click on it the path at the top of the window is the path to the link.
Is there a way to show/open where the link points to?

I’m using Lubuntu 23.04, and have a couple of linked directories in $HOME that point to shares on a file-server.

guiverc@hpprodesk400g1sff:~$   stat de2900
  File: de2900 -> /de2900
  Size: 7               Blocks: 0          IO Block: 4096   symbolic link

On opening pcmanfm-qt and looking at that directory, it’s shown as a link


If I move into that directory, it’ll show as /home/guiverc/de2900 which is I suspect where you are now.


If I ask pcmanfm-qt for Folder Properties on my current folder though I do see

which shows that my current location is /de2900.

This required interaction on my behalf though, where I do suspect you’d like that detail shown all the time. Sorry I’ve never wanted/explored that.

I copied the link from the properties and then pasted it in the edit path in a pcmanfm-qt window.
All is good now.
