Thanks for your prompt answer Ben. I use MC and that's fine. 

But when I go Ctrl-O when in Kate or Lyx the order is reversed. Can't
get an answer from the Lyx list. It must be a file manager accessed by
these two.

Libreoffice and Okular don't reverse the order.

When the window opens there is no option other than list view - detail
view or new folder. Very sparse.

I might have to set the file-manager in my profile or .bashrc, but
don't know the way to do that.

Thank You,
