The standard error of kdialog is not redirected because the flag in

    if (child.start (args, ChildProcess::wantStdOut))

is ignored (juce_gui_basics/native/juce_linux_FileChooser.cpp).

It means that the filename is all the kdialog output (stdout + stderr).
Probably you are using old JUCE's code with a bug in


You can update JUCE or change the lines (the second `if' is your problem):

    if ((streamFlags | wantStdOut) != 0)
    if ((streamFlags | wantStdErr) != 0)


    if ((streamFlags & wantStdOut) != 0)
    if ((streamFlags & wantStdErr) != 0)
