I do most my stuff on the command line, however I find thunar useful for two things,
1) quickly mounting usb-sticks/removable media from it's side bar
2) Navigating directories full of pictures/photos where the filename isn't always that useful and the thumbnails really come in handy.

Occasionally I also use mc.

Thumbs up mc is so Slackware a like

Yep,
thumbs up for mc:
no way better to copy a plentitude of files (aka backup) there and forth (locally or lan/wan) with possible hick-ups (dialogs with "no, no to all , yes, yes to all, cancel")
where there a XFCE vesion for mc, i would strongly promote it, for KDE/Qt there seems to be krusader, I would love to see it on OEM slackware though (room in extra?).

I agree with SCerovec. MC is absolutely necessary. Krusader is a great file manager under X, but you can always install it from SlackBuilds.

the latest slackbuild pushed this morning builds fine on 64-current here.

if you still have that linking problem, try expliciting LDFLAGS="-ldl" (sometimes gcc-4.7.x needs it, but here seems not).

Thanks ponce. (& Chess)

That new one builds just fine here too.


Oh, FYI. the emelfm2.slackbuild script is missing executable permissions in the slackbuilds tar file.

Right, now to check it out.

GazL, SCerovec: Thank you :-) that does make sense, especially the thumbnails proving handy for looking through masses of images.

FWIW there seems to be the gentoo filemanager for GTK based X DE, but i haven't used it much (yet)...
