Filelight: how to ignore a file?

Mon Nov 16, 2020 6:43 pm
I'd like Filelight to ignore my swapfile ('/swapfile') when I scan the root directory (/); however, there is no visible option to exclude files from a scan.
There is one to exclude folders (and not individual files), but my swapfile is in the root directory so that won't work.
Does anyone know of a way I can force Filelight to ignore it, or possibly identify some patch for it that I could build and install?
Thanks in advance.

Did you actually try just adding /swapfile in the exclude list?


Currently running Kubuntu 20.10, Plasma 5.19.5, Frameworks 5.74.0, Qt 5.14.2, kernel 5.8.0-29, AMD RENOiR Graphics
FWIW: it is always useful to state the exact Plasma version and distribution when asking questions, makes it easier for us to help ...

Yes. It won't display files in the dialog, only folders, and manually typing /swapfile adds / as an exclusion.
BTW I'm running Plasma 5.20 on Arch if it helps.

can't really help here, I use a SWAP partition, not a swap file
