Linux equivalent to Windows Explorer


I always use Windows Explorer to navigate, copy, move, etc. etc. in Windows because of its split screen capabilities. What program is a Linux equivalent to Windows Explorer.

I was not asking for Internet Explorer. I was asking for the equivalent to Windows Explorer. There is a difference.

If you're looking for a Windows Explorer-like file manager and by 'split-screen' you're focusing on the tree pane as important, you can get the FOX library which includes a demo 'PathFinder' and 'mfm' is another fm based on it but they aren't paricularly good. xfe is another file manager based on the FOX toolkit and the best of them.

There are two file managers called 'simple file manager' or 'sfm' and one of them is a tree, but it probably sucks. Xplore is another, also lame, I think.

Endeavour Mark II is another one and probably the best of the tree fm's. So either xfe or endeavour, probably.

Then there are single, dual, and multi-pane file managers, but those are the only GUI trees I know of. There are several console trees, though.

If you mean IE, yeah, no Linux browser sucks that bad. *g*

I just posted a reply that I am looking for W. Explorer not IE. And yes, I would like it to have double pain windows so I can quickly copy files from one directory to another.

before windows explorer there was... midnight commander! type "mc" in a terminal.

i've never tried it, but the gentoo file manager (not to be confused with the gentoo distro) also looks pretty good and provides split screen capability.

>edit: okay, i just tried it. nice!

No problem Shane. I know what that files like. I worked a solid 8 hours to-day (temp employee through temp service) and the company I am trying to get a job with made us write a 4 hour test after our shift.

Talk about boggle your mind with these math and mech questions.

Hello

Of course we all use the midnight commander.

Look at http://www.ibiblio.org/mc/ for details.

Hi,

I user the X File Explorer (http://sourceforge.net/projects/xfe) because it's pretty fast.
