File manager for FluxBox


Hi,

I am using Fluxbox in an debian distrubution, id like to have a file manager that works, if I start Nautilus every other app dissapears and it ads icons to the desktop, then I have to kill its process so I can se the other apps again. Is there any other good filmanager that works ?

Thanx.

/Peter

loads, just find the one you like. there's probably a command cline switch that will stop nautilus showing icons and basically loading half of gnome.. but i hate it anyway. i'd recommend the old gnome standard, gmc, with the --nodesktop switch. you might want to set it as an official alias to make it perment, or if you're ging from the fluxbox menu, just edit the menu entry
