Why not have two copies of Thunar running? One for the source and one for the destination.

Of course, to get the icons on it use need to create the file $HOME/.gtkrc-2.0 and add the line:
Code:
gtk-icon-theme-name = "Tango"
to the file.
Will that work also with VLC?

I noticed that VLC uses gnome icon set when in XFCE although I have set tango on XFCE preferences. Other programs such as Google Chrome and Firefox honors my settings so I will try this out for VLC.

Dolphin in KDE4 seems about useless, missing most of the features of konq in kde3 and takes forever to display folders with a lot of files, is there anything better?
I have no problems with Dolphin in KDE 4.5.5 in -current. I like the thumbnail previews and it works for accessing network shares.
For local file administration as root in a GUI, I usually 'kdesu thunar'.
For CLI ssh sessions, I use Midnight Commander.

I use xfe - its available at slackbuilds.org or through sbopkg. It will open /usr/bin in a second and be ready for navigation. Its pretty useful in any WM or DE.

CLI: bash & friends
NCurses: mc
GUI: rox (easy to have multiple windows of thumbnails and drag and drop between them)

Gwenview or digiKam, one or the other, would be the best way (imho) to sort through pictures.

I use the tools that come with Slackware. I use Dolphin for general file management while using KDE. For images I like to use Gwenview, it handles my camera downloads just fine. For the heavy duty stuff I fall back to my favorite Midnight Commander.

Just wish Krusader didn't need KDE libraries to run. An excellent file manager for keyboard users. For non-KDE users a similar FM can be found in EmelFM2.
