Know any good file managers?


Hi

For all of you Linux veterans: do you know any file manager, where i can easily set the program to automatically open certain file types with the program i choose? I use Gentoo (OS and file manager too) btw.

All contemporary GUI filemanagers I know do that.

Doesn't matter which one you use.

(Isn't that a basic feature of those things? )

Rox is really really nice. Its fast, & has interesting config options that made it a pleasure to use.
Konqueror supports your requirement of opening file-types with specific apps too, go ahead with that if you intend to use the rest of the KDE suite as well.

Try Krusader if you use KDE.
