Favourite Filemanager


Krusader would be my choice. Has many more features than Nautilus, although in general I prefer GNOME to KDE. If I want a GUI I want a real GUI, that's why I do not like Midknight Commander - appears to me to be kind of a GUIfied command line, but does not convince me.

I can't vote, Vim happens to be my filemanager.
Check out Netrw plugin (any modern Vim has this plug already installed)
VimCommander, or vc for short, as I like to call it, will blow your mind:

Code:
# .bashrc
vc() {
    local TARGET=''

    if test -z "$@"
    then
        TARGET=.
    else
        TARGET="$@"
    fi

    vim \
    -c vsplit \
    -c "set cursorline" \
    -c "normal gh" \
    -c "let &titlestring=\"netrw\"" \
    -c "set acd" \
    "$TARGET"
    return 0
}

Midnight Commander for sure!

Dolphin is great. However, I've been using XFE of late, and its very good also. Its just not on the list.

Nautilus has served me well ever since i first switched to Linux, used Thunar for a while but never felt at home with it.

Midnight Commander for remote access and FTP file system. The DOS/NC look&feel is also not bad.
