But the dialog box provided by Krusader is part of the KDE libraries
or Krusader itself, it has nothing at all to do with Xfce. As you say,
if you use Thunar you will see the dialog box that Thunar provides, Xfce
is not involved in whether or not Krusader displays a dialog. The
problem lies either in Krusader or one of the many KDE libraries.

You are probably running an older version on the machine where you get
the dialog, you could try downgrading to the same version on the other
machine. There could also be a configuration setting, maybe a hidden
one, for whether a dialog is displayed or not.

Most people who use Xfce probably tries to stay with GTK applications,
to avoid dragging in the whole KDE stack. Sure, some of us use KDE
applications, but this is in general not the best place to ask for help
that is specific to them. I didn't mean to be rude by pointing this
out, I'm simply saying that there are other places where you are more
likely to find people who can actually help you :)

As an aside, I can recommend SpaceFM as a GTK file manager - I find it
very useful. Easy to customize and extend, it has extensive
capabilities for adding custom scripts etc. It isn't as pretty or
tightly integrated as some other file managers, but it's very powerful.
