Better than Nautilus?


I need to find a file manager that does a better job than Nautilus for GNOME. For one thing, it crashes constantly, sometimes with an error message related to "nautilus-throbber," and sometimes with no error message whatsoever.

Does anyone know of a better one - one that will work with my GNOME desktop?

RH used to use sawfish. I don't know about better or if it is still around but it might be worth a look. Incidentally I have never had nautilus crash. So you may have something corrupted.

As it happens, I already have several of those file managers installed.

Now... how do I switch over to them? :-)

I like XFFM, its part of XFCE4 (xfce.org)


How do you switch to them? Just run them, usually you can justy type the command in a Console.
