I sometimes use Dolphin and I think it's pretty good, except that it clutters up your directories with it's files.

It uses that file to remember your last view setting for that file. But why would you want that any way - it's so aggravating the way you have to change view every time you go into a new dir, but on top if that it still clutters up your files to do it.

It's as if they complicated the program intentionally to reduce usability and clutter your drive!

Even when you turn that remembering-view thing off, it still clutters your drive with these files! How do I stop it from doing that?

Where do I look for this clutter?

But yes, I'm sure the features have some overhead.....That's why the higher powers invented really big hard drives.


Cancel all my suggestions---get Midnight Commander (GUI??---who needs a stinkin' GUI???)
