Save my day and say that there is a good file manager for blackbox user who doesn't want to have GTK/QT installed and who also dislikes MC (midnight commander) look alike twin panel file managers.

something like finder would do the trick if it doesn't require gtk/qt/other big libraries...

at the moment I am using XFE.

Thanks.

You must try rox for that

Code:
emerge -av rox


I love it. If you want you can have it provide icons for your desktop by running (in whatever starts up your xfce)

Code:
rox -p=whatever


Rox provides a nice way of one-click to mount/unmount your usb/cdrom devices too if you use it in this way.

Rox Filer (rox-base/rox) requires a bare GTK2 installation, if it helps. :|
