Hello, I like(d)/like this file manager:

Where could I get a tar.gz of it to install it on our debian stable?
Happy Tux !

I was bored and tried to find the sources for you; apparently I was unable to. Out of curiosity, why would you use a 6 year old internet-explorer emulating piece of no longer maintained software?

AFAIK Corel never released the source code and it was bought by Xandros in 2001. If you look at Xandros website you will see their file manager looks almost identical to Corel's version. So I doubt it is available ... legally.

The Xandros File Manager

One of the strongest features, in my mind, is the Xandros File Manager. This is not an open-source program; it is only available with Xandros Linux. That’s a pity, because I’d love to have this on my Red Hat system! I surmise that this is derived from the old Corel File Manager, which Xandros acquired when they bought Corel Linux.

As you might expect by now, the aim of the Xandros File Manager is to resemble the Windows Explorer, and once again they’ve done a superb job. It actually follows Windows 98 (and Konqueror) in that it can also function as a web browser. In a file manager, I prefer the "Detailed List" view to cute icons, and the Xandros view is identical to Windows -- except that it also includes file permissions, owner, and group. Both the directory tree and the file list are displayed in the high density that I like.

To offer both Windows-friendliness and Linux power, the first two branches on the file tree are "My Home" and "All File Systems." The first, naturally, takes you to your home directory (/home/whoever) and the second to the root directory (/).

"All File Systems" also includes every mounted parition that was autodetected during the Xandros install. In my case, I have /disks/C and /disks/D for the two DOS/Windows partitions, plus /disks/redhat and /disks/redhat/boot for the two Red Hat 9 partitions. (Yes, Xandros deduced automatically that I had a separate boot partition for Red Hat.) This of course will be ideal for my wife, who will want to keep her old Windows hard drive installed and access it from Linux. The DOS/Windows drives also appear as C: and D: at the top level of the file tree.

Also in my file tree are "Floppy," "CD-ROM 1," and "CD-ROM 2." These are automounted when accessed.
This file manager looks indeed very cool : http://www.softwareinreview.com/imag...os_home_40.png

some search of it too but wont be easy / possible: http://justlinux.com/forum/showthread.php?t=113772

Can we create a such file manager for linux ?

I have a 3 CD set of Corel Linux from 1999. I think it is release 1.0. Serial number: CLSXR-11085432G8

Code:
Product Name:	Corel Linux 1
Platform:	Linux x86
Language:	North American English
Media:  	Source Code CD-ROM
Build Number:	1.00
MF Number:	100
RTM Date:	November 15, 1999

Product Name:	2.2.12 Kernel + Base Packages 

Product Name:	Corel selected Slink packages

Product Name:	Corel�s KDE 1.1.2 modified source
It includes source code for all open source software. The box said that it included Corel WordPerfect Light v8 but I cannot find either the source or the binary for WordPerfect on any of the three CDs. It uses deb packages.

The file manager frenchn00b links to could be a modified version of kfm. I found the kfm source and expanded it but I couldn't find any Corel modifications to kfm in a quick search of the code.

Anyhow, I had no idea that old Corel distributions were collector's items. I am willing to auction it off. What am I bid?

Just apttitude Konqueror, looks about the same except less like something from windows 3.1/95

Though it unfortunately has like 1,000 dependencies if your not running KDE :P (had to get most of them anyways for Amerock and k3b)


You might even be able to get a theme for it that makes it look almost identical to the older one your looking for also, if the older look is what your actually after since the icons and windows have the same functionality/placement, just looks newer.

Yet? Heh, perhaps you're under the impression that XFFM is apparently too new for debian stable. The thing is XFFM is pretty old, so old that XFCE no longer uses it as it's default FM. Since version 4, XFCE has replaced XFFM with Thunar.

P.S.: I guess I've never been able to understand the desire of some users to make the UI on their Linux system 'mimic' the UI of Windows or MAC OS.
