Thunar and Rox Filer: Mighty File Managers With a Difference

,----[ Quote ]
| Thunar and Rox Filer are different from the 
| average file manager, and different from 
| each other too. Both are powerful and 
| flexible, offering features unavailable in 
| other Linux file managers. Thunar has an 
| XP-like interface but it's Linux to the 
| core. Rox has a unique look and feel -- and 
| a rhyme and reason all its own. It grows on 
| you.
| [...]
| Describing any Linux app as a counterpart 
| for a Windows program can be a kiss of 
| death, but that is what first attracted me 
| to Thunar. When I migrated to Linux, 
| Windows XP was my comfort zone. So Linux 
| apps that gave me the look and feel of 
| Windows made the transition easier. All 
| file managers do not work the same way. 
| Thunar worked like what I knew.

Better Linux Package Management with Checkinstall

,----[ Quote ]
| If you use Linux in any depth, youâre
| eventually have to install a program from
| source code. Normally the process is pretty
| quick and painless, but it still has some
| drawbacks, especially when it comes to
| upgrading or uninstalling that program. To
| help resolve this, weâve got checkinstall,
| a useful tool that adds some cleverness to
| the process by keeping track of file
| changes and generating binary packages from
| your tarballs. With checkinstall, you can
| generate a RPM, deb, or Slackware package
| that can be ported between systems for easy
| install and removal.


3 Linux Console File Managers You Should Try: Midnight Commander (MC), Last File Manager (LFM) And VIFM

,----[ Quote ]
| GNU Midnight Commander (MC), Vifm and Last
| File Manager (Lfm) are 3 visual file
| manager applications for the Linux console.
| All of these 3 applications will remind you
| of Norton Commander - with the main
| interface consisting of two panels which
| display the file system -, but each has
| something special. Read about these 3 great
| console file managers for Linux and let us
| know your favourite in the comments!


Dolphin File Manager

,----[ Quote ]
| Getting to know KDE shows me nifty things
| about Dolphin as a file manager. I mean,
| Iâve read about the features but itâs not
| the same as really getting around to using
| it on a more regular basis.
