File manager in X-windows


Hi,
I am using windowmaker and running Linux. I am avoiding desktops like KDE on the server. Is there a nice file manager which i can use to copy/paste and move files around?

Something like the old windows fiel manager will be fine

Thanks for all suggestions

you know that's not an easy one to answer... I've been searching long and hard with little success... of course there's midnight commander but it looks awful DOS'y ... I'm assuming you want to stay away from anything like Nautilus or even Gnome's old file manager... gfilerunner is an manager that is pretty good however its still a little choppy as its only being developed by one person.

here's a link with a pretty good list:

good luck,

Well Midnight Commander is really excellent. Another fine one if you want some fancy graphics to is Krusader, but then you need to have the kde libs installed.

Emelfm is great too.

There's also Rox Filer, and Gentoo (not the distro).
Evidence is the new file manager for Enlightenment 0.17.

Smile worker

I like worker from:

I could even compile it easily.

I've tried nautilus, konqueror, mc, vfu, gentoo, worker, emelfm, filerunner, sfm, fm, xfm, fox-commander, krusader, rox-filer, xnc, xplore, and endeavourII and probably others I've forgotten. None of them matches DOS Navigator (DOS) or 2xExplorer (Windows//NT) - both dual-pane - and several outright suck. It's quite frustrating. However, my favorites of those are mc on the console (though vfu's nifty), gentoo or worker for the dual-pane gui, and endeavourII for the Exploder-like tree+pane gui.
