Right now to open a vault you need to: press the button “Open another vault” (left inferior corner), then “Open folder as a vault”, navigate to the folder path and select the folder (4 steps).
It would be much easier navigate to your folder path with the file manager app or the terminal and open it:
just click right button and select open with Obsidian
open via terminal like Visual Studio Code
code . (open the current directory)

Did you find any solution?
This is kind of how I want to use Obsidian also… as a markdown focused view on top of my repositories. This would go hand in hand with needing to blacklist and/or whitelist directories from obsidian’s content graph & index.
Have another issue about it here:

Oh thanks, I’m on Linux with KDE and I can’t do that (right click on the Obsidian icon and see the vaults).
But I found a better way using a similar method.
Just create a bookmark in your browser with the protocol Obsidian (obsidian://) on the directory path like user V.
You can save the link as a bookmark by typing in the name and url or by Ctrl+D once it is open. In this case:
the name is: User V
the url: obsidian:///Knowledge/PKM/User-V/
Once done, just click on the link and it will open the Obsidian vault. This is not a way to use the terminal, but you can save it and use the (obsidian://) protocol.
From terminal you can open it with:
$ xdg-open obsidian:///0/Knowledge/PKM/User-V/
$ firefox obsidian:///0/Knowledge/PKM/User-V/
but I get some warnings with electron and gtk
