hi there

while using kde i use konqueror as filemanager. now i'm running enlightenment as wm and i'm kinda missing a filemanager. i guess i could still use konqueror (didn't try that tho) but that's not what i want. is there a good filemanager out there? it doesn't need to have any special abilities, no eye candy, just basic file manager features. even better if it's in portage. any suggestions?

thanks

Try mc - GNU Midnight Commander cli-based file manager

Code:
# emerge mc

You can try Rox, too. It's very light and fast.

Just to make you curious because now 2 people suggest it: rox is great! Its just a matter of replacing the current iconset and writing some scripts for not-default actions (like watching movies/photos on my tv, unrarring). You can bind loads of commands to the mime-types (which are also configurable).
What I also like is when you return from a directory, it flashes the directory you were in for a second. Great for orientation.

I third the suggestion for ROX-Filer. It's very very nice.

Tried out rox today, very powerful and can look really nice too. Its a little different, but not too hard to get used to.

i second emelfm2. I´ve never got used to those "windoze-style-filemanagers" like rox - but i like the style of the old norton-commander on dos, so emelfm is the way to go (at least for me).

Well, you just moved *away* from KDE so it's probably not what you want, but Krusader is teh awesome.

My favorit is also rox. It is fast, skinable, supports drag&drop, light to configure and you can implement lot's of plugins like an archiver or so on 8)

I really have to ask why you find rox so fantastic? Tried it once, but I newer got comfortable. If you want icons, whats wrong with gnome? If you don't, there is nothing like bash and mc :)

Yes I find Evidence quite impressive, but its so unstable, and feels really 'unfinished'.

What makes rox cooler than nautilus (gnome filemanager) for me, is the responsiveness, and it's less bloated. Also its very easy to configure. I like terminal-here (` key), auto-completion (/ key plus TAB).

But indeed you got a point: nautilus is more beautiful overall, and I like the borders around the thumbnails :) I never was able to disable the strange win95 spacial behaviour :( (so if anybody knows...?) If I can easily start theming this one, I might keep it... but its so sloww... (try rox if you want to feel the difference ;) )

rox is so many orders of magnitude faster than nautilus which lumbers through tasks like thumbnail loading, etc. your point about icons needs clarification -- you don't need to use the rox "pinboard" for desktop icons, or the rox panel, etc. personally i am not a big fan of desktop icons, so i will be using the rox-filer alone within xfce. (no desktop "pinboard" for icons on the desktop, i want xfce to control the desktop). the rox-filer is FAST, light and functional.
