Since Linux has no UI, there's also no filesystem bowser in Linux ;)

AFAIK Qt has no way to do this, since it requires special code for each
filesystem browser you can find on the desktop-app market for Linux. I
guess for KDE's dolphin you could do this with DBus, no idea about nautilus
(or whatever GNOME uses these days) or other filesystem browsers.
