Re: Could you recommend file manager that are not based on KDE and GNOME?



Thanks for your advice!
I have tried and been disappointed by gentoo.
I have used File Runner before. It's not as intuitive as Explorer of
Windows.

To me, any interface that's different from Explorer will make me
uncomfortable.

I've been looking at FileManagers, and it seems there's some tendency
to rely on two applications, a text-based file manager for daily use
and a GUI application for special purposes. While a purist will
insist
on managing files from a terminal, I've never found that to be
practical.

For a GUI file manager, the one named thumar is often
praised. Midnight Commander (mc) works both text-based and GUI
interface, and I've used FileRunner for years. In none of these cases
do you need a desktop environment.

As for text-based applications, there is clex and MC, but I've been
looking at putting emacs into a file manager mode. Here there seem to
be three choices: a) Norton Commander (nc.el, which uses MC
commands),
Evening Commander (ec.el, which is less complete), and Sunrise
Commander (sunrise-commander.el, which is based on dired
commands). You can even run these emacs modes from a console, as far
as I know, which for me is a big advantage (independent of the X
windows system).
