    You probably want KIO::highlightInFileManager(), which was made for
    exactly this purpose.

        I have a KService that I've found using
        KMimeTypeTrader::self()->preferredService and let's say I know
        it's Dolphin. I'd like to run Dolphin telling it to open a
        folder and select a file in particular. I know that from the
        command line I could do

        dolphin --select /home/silencer/lines.svg

        So I thought passing --select /home/silencer/lines.svg as
        parameter when executing Dolphin using KRun::runApplication
        would work, like this:

        QList<QUrl> list;
        list.append(QUrl("--select /home/silencer/lines.svg"));
        KRun::runApplication(*fileBrowserApp, list, Q_NULLPTR);

        but if I do that I receive the error:

        Unknown option 'select /home/silencer/lines.svg'.

          From the command line I can generate this error calling
        Dolphin with:

        dolphin --"select /home/silencer/lines.svg"

        What would be the correct way of passing this kind of parameter
        to the app using KRun::runApplication?

        Thank you in advance, and please let me know if I can provide
        any other information,
