Changing the file manager for KDE?


I was wondering if its possible to use an alternative to Konqueror?

I liked the look (not functionality though) of Nautilus (when I was using Gnome) much more and I was wondering if there are any other file managers out there that will work with KDE?

Thanks.

Depending on what you got installed almost any file manager (ie. Nautilus) will work within KDE.
I use rox as a backup for the occasions koqueror craps out.

So does that mean any apps made specifically for KDE will work in Gnome if Qt is installed? Like KPPP dialer etc?

Or are there other dependencies?

What has me confused is I was looking in KDevelop and when creating a new project you can choose from a range of KDE applications or a Qt application, shouldn't they be one and the same?

Its just KDE seems to have alot more front ends to useful programs and if those could work in Gnome then id probably go with Gnome.

I only use gnome once in a while but as far as I can tell all the kde apps work in gnome as well when you got Qt and the apps installed.Of course it puts more load on the box because you basically run two desktops at the same time but I didn't have a problem with it.Where you can get in trouble is when you use only a window manager - some are not a 100% compatible with gnome and kde.
