I don't want to sidetrack the topic but of those mentioned which gui ones do have options for removable media and network mounts besides dolphin?

I'd like to try and alternative to dolphin but so far haven't found anything suitable.

most of the time, I just use zsh for any file managing, but for graphical file managing I use Thunar.

dive - pcmanfm does, though you might need ponce's slackbuild. There was a thread on LQ about it.

Thunar does this.

I'd highly recommend Rob Workman's Xfce 4.8 packages. Especially on a -current machine (so, I guess 13.37), it's quite nice. All of the features we are discussing seem a little more "crisp" than in 4.6.

Thunar's hardware automounting stuff in 4.8 uses udev instead of hal ... I'm guessing that this is the direction that -current will take with other things, post-release.

What does 'options for removable media' mean? I just edit fstab and then, when I click on a directory icon that is a mountpoint in rox, it mounts. When I leave it, it unmounts. Otherwise, I just type '(u)mount device'. But I guess that isn't what you mean?

That would be ok for me. I'll have a look at rox. Some sort of network scanning would be good too: http://www.dawoodfall.net/sshots/shot-7732956943.gif for example.

Okay, I won't say rox can't do that, but I doubt it. It could mount shares or whatever, but it pretty much follows the 'real' (or usual abstraction layer of the) filesystem.

However, there's stuff that can go with rox(-filer) like rox-samba. It or something like it may be useful. (I don't use the rest of the rox 'desktop' or appdirs or zeroinstall or any of the other weirdness about rox, so I dunno, but good luck.)

Usually, I just use terminal commands (ls, cp, mv, rm, chmod, etc.) and that works perfectly fine. It's the method I would recommend.

If you are dead set on using a graphical file manager, then Thunar is very nice. It has a clean interface, is fast, and works extremely well.
