File manager for IceWM like dfm
 
Hello!
I like the view of dfm but the project seems to be dead (last update in 2001) and it hangs up with my IceWM, so I can't use it at all. Is there anything else like dfm (it should look very oldschool) that I can use with IceMW on the desktop area?

I mostly use mc.

If it needs to be more graphical (GTK), I usually use either ROX (full DE) or xfe (win9*-like).

Thanks! Xfe looks very Win98. :)
ROX is not an option since it's full DE and I can't use it with IceWM. What I wanted is something that can intergrate in IceWM desktop to show its icons and be a file manager at the same time. Xfe looks cool but it's not quite for integration.

What about pcmanfm or emelfm2?

That's exactly what ROX does :)
With a full DE, I meant IceWM + ROX.

PS: I use it as an even more lightweight alternative for XFCE and LXDE.
ROX is one of the most used add-ons for IceWM users.

Once upon a time (circa 2003) I ran ROX with IceWM on my ancient Nec laptop (300MHz AMD K6, 64 MB RAM, 4GB HD). Lightest combination I found that did what I needed.

I currently have a laptop that uses the ROX+Icewm setup (although I don't use the rox desktop I have played with it and it seems to work just fine). See the AntiX distro as an example (I believe ROX+IceWM is the default on the latest Live version).
