I reloaded one of my systems yesterday and decided to give XFCE4 a look. I actually ended up liking it more than I thought considering how I typically use KDE.

However, the file manager is driving me crazy. Can anyone suggest a nice, full-featured graphical file manager like Krusader for KDE?

Most people seem to hate it, and I think most people use rox.

Yeah I took a look at Gentoo, haven't had a lot of time to mess around with it.

And why the heck did they pick the same name as the distro?

I like Rox-Filer. I'm also wanting to try Xfce's Thunar when it becomes usable. I think it will be a great asset to Xfce instead of its current file manager, which isn't all that great.

I took a look a Rox's homepage --- wow, visually it looks cool as hell. But it's a desktop environment like XFCE -- are you suggesting I use that INSTEAD of XFCE? Or just the Rox-filer part? I'll give Rox a look as a desktop if it's just as good as XFCE.

I just use the file manager component with the rest of Xfce.

Nautilus ownz all.

Make sure you use --no-desktop option when you run it in XFCE.

Rox-Filer as many people suggested. It feels (or actually is) a hell lot of faster than others.

i used xfe for a while it was easy to use allows you to mount and change permissions easily might go along with the xfce4 look :)

I'm on Enlightenment 0.17 now and using evidence as a filemanager, however i'm thinking of emerging xfe again for its features :D

If only xfe didn't continually remind me of Explorer.exe :wink:


(Yes I know. That's the worst excuse to dislike a file manager, but I really do like Rox better...)

Xfe, I personally dont like Rox, Xfe is like Explorer on windows and it runs faster than Konqueror and Nautilus. I also think that nautilus is weak. I would like to see a Gtk version of Konqueror for Gnome to replace nautilus. Xffm is not to horrible, it is just not what most people are used to, that is why I suggest Xfe. Rox is another weird File Manager.

Try Krusader. It's a classic 2 pane file manager but implemented with slick Qt based GUI. Or you could install just the Gnome's Nautilus and use it...

For some reason, I don't think that was what he was looking for.

Thunar looks awesome. I started using Xfce recently but the filemanager is unusable.
