I am surprised there is not so much love for ROX filer? I had once embarked on a quest for the perfect file manager for openbox, and I had to settle on ROX, even though I must admit I hated its default look when I first saw it in Dyne:bolic. Once you change the icon theme to GTK though, and change a few key-bindings (like F2 for search Shift+Delete instead of the default Ctrl + X (I have NO idea why) for delete), ROX just rocks!

I think maybe it might have to do with the fact that ROX seems to be ideal in the Stacking WM situation, while not so much for a Tiling one.... But then again, when I am in a Tiling WM, coreutils does the job fine for me!

I love Dolphin. I've yet to find a file manager as versitle to it, though SpaceFM does have some of the features that I like. I use Dolpin while in KDE (majority of the time) and SpaceFM in other environments. Space FM's multi-pane approach is very nice indeed.

I used to love konqueror as a file manager, and still think that old konqueror3 has dolphin beat. But konqueror4 uses dolphin as its kpart for file management, so no vote there for me.

When doing command line stuff, nothing beats the core utils.

BTW- I have tried to love qtfm. Didn't happen. Just not what I am looking for I guess.

Wow I'm surprised by all the responses to this thread. And also surprised about all the different filemanagers people love that I'd never heard of.!

Thunar only because I started with xfce4 and it worked (and that's all you need to ask for).

coreutils because everyone uses them (impossible to use linux and now), and they work.

I recently installed ranger and it's very good so far.

no surprise here. dolphin works, and has every feature that i need, and that can’t be achieved by a service menu built in. especially the git and svn support is well-though out and works without quirks and/or surprise. then there is a big repo of those service menus i mentioned. in comparison to nautilus, the builtin console is saner than the nautilus plugin console, and neither two panel mode nor the breadcrumb/lineedit switch won’t go away. in comparison to pcmanfm, it has just more features i need (e.g. symlink creation), and i like the breadcrumb bar. a combination of that applies to thunar, but i love its rename capabilities: afaik the only field where dolphin has serious shortcomings in comparison.

i rarely use the console for more than basic file-managing tasks, with one exception: perl-rename. start using it, it’s insanely useful. this tool, together with oh-my-zsh’s autocompletion (which also w{orks,ith} curly braces) does everything i need in file manipulation.

I have been using Xfe for a long time, its not pretty but gives me the same features as dolphin without the eyecandy/bloat.

I have tried almost every GUI file manager and Dolphin is just awesome - nice look and of course endless configurability. I don't use CLI file managers but i like MC since Windows 3.1 times smile

Tried Thunar, Dolphin and others but did not feel a destinct advantage over Nautilus. At least nothing that you
notice immediately without taking some time to learn the in and outs. Maybe my requirements for a File Manager
are very low.

PCManFM crashes too often for my liking, and most of what Thunar won't do well, like change permissions on multiple files, I generally do in a terminal anyway. Using xfwm's default behavior that rips off W7's Snap, I don't need a dual-pane FM.
