ive been looking for a file manager that has drag and drop capability with ark, but that isnt konqueror/dolphin. anyone have any suggestions? thunar and xfe dont have that feature, and i dont want to test a thousand file managers until i find one. does anyone use one currently that they know works this way?

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.
Thank you so much!
And i use thunar..

It's a long time since I tried Krusader and I don't have KDE libs installed to try it now. Have you tried it? It can be extended with compression-extraction plugins but I'm not sure how it fits with Ark. Either way it's an excellent file manager, in my opinion the best there is on BSD/GNU-Linux. Just a shame it is dependent on KDE libs.

Just a quick note to you ranger users: I submitted an update on slackbuilds.org and changed the name from python-ranger to just ranger, which seems more sensible to me.

i tested out xarchiver from slackbuilds, not only does that have drag/drop with thunar, but it has a plugin for the two that you can build as well! i now use thunar as my file manager, and am a few steps closer to moving entirely away from big applications
