Any non-spatial, non-MC, GTK file manager out there?

Hi,

I'm looking for something between ROX and XFM, it seems.
Something like a GTK version of XFM to use with XFCE4.

I don't like spatial, that's the only reason why I ditched ROX.
I've been using XFM lately, but it's not GTK.


Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Bruno

Re: Any non-spatial, non-MC, GTK file manager out there?

enligthenment 0.17 is a DE, and they have developed a filemanager in GTK2.
I've used it, and I found it pretty ok, although I could't figure out a way to configure it haha
can't remember it's name though, but it was either...

nevermind! here is a link:
http://evidence.sourceforge.net/

otherwise - nautilus is pretty nice smile

Nautilus depends too much on GNOME.

This is the best one I've found so far, would rock in GTK2:

How about emelfm or emelfm2.  The first is in Extra.

or gentoo, which is in current.

GTK 1.X isn't that bad, but it's not that funny either.
I wouldn't be suprised if someone is actually porting that app to gtk2 right now smile

My misunderstanding - I thought spatial was where a new window opened every time you enter a new subdirectory?

The applications above don't do that.

Anyway, another more Endeavour-like app is xwc at:

Re: Any non-spatial, non-MC, GTK file manager out there?

just use Nautilus and if you dont' like the spatial mode {I LIKEEEEEEE it}, then just get gtweakui [al package]
then re gtweakui-nautilus there you enable the
ALWAYS USE BROWSER VIEW

google next time

Re: Any non-spatial, non-MC, GTK file manager out there?

See how difficult it is? wink

Filer: page is so slow that not even Google's cache shows the complete page.

Nautilus: depends on GNOME, not just GTK but a lot of dependencies. Plus it doesn't work very nicely under other DEs like XFCE.

XWC: same as XFE. I like it and have been using it, but it's not GTK. Endeavour has the same kind of interface but it's GTK1.

EmelFM and Gentoo: I'm looking for non MidnightCommander-like file managers. One pane should be for the directory tree, the other for files.

Spatial is a completely different thing, means opening a new window everytime you click on a folder (which pollutes the screen) or going into that directory (forcing you to open a new window if you want to drag a file between directories). Browser or navigational mode is a two-pane mode, one pane for the tree, other for the files. Much more logical to my way of working.

I'd love to see a GTK2 version of Endeavour2. Or a two-pane (tree and files) version of ROX-Filer.

About XFFM (XFCE File Manager), looks a bit better for the next version 4.2 :

http://www.xfce.org/images/screenshots/xfce42.png

But I've tried it on a CVS build and didn't liked it as much as XFE.
And it's not quite a tree pane + file pane design, it's a "triangle tree" in every pane tongue

alternative is a brilliant filemanager: konqueror

see here, what it can do:

http://daperi.freelinuxhost.com/flow/konquerorFM.jpg

EDIT: i know, you need something in gtk2, but if something like this would exist that uses gtk2 and has all features konqueror has, i would use it --- konqueror you need a little hdd-space for installation and have to wait once that kdeinit starts, but then, it's great :-)

Have a look at Endeavour2. It's GTK1, but since you're not working in KDE (or so it seems) it might be a lighter alternative. I have to google if it's possible to use AA fonts in GTK1 somehow.

Of course Konqueror has the advantage of being a web browser has well wink

i run kdeinit from x-startup, because i use some kde apps quite often (kmail, korganizer, amarok ...), so once a day i'm waiting to kdeinit to start anyway

endeavour2 is gtk1 (what makes it look strange on a 15" screen in UXGA - everything small) and it's front remembers too much on windows (and this makes me a little bit nervous - out of custom ;-) ; it's almost an instinct to save files every 2 min under windows or want to if the gui looks similar)

it is of course a lighter alternative (konqueror has momentum starting), and if it would be gtk2 it would be a really great tool

gdkxft looks promising, but is in the beginning - and i don't give gtk1 a really great future - let's hope someone ports the rest of gtk1-apps to gtk2 ;-)

Re: Any non-spatial, non-MC, GTK file manager out there?

did a little search for gtk2 fm's

http://freshmeat.net/projects/egofm/
looks very promising

some docs for ideas, if someone of you starts a new fm-project:

btw - thank you, everyone!

I fell in love with emelFM2 - it's a bit buggy, but we can probably work it out :]

Asked the same question at FreeBSDForums and Velocity was suggested:

http://www.freebsdforums.org/forums/sho … adid=25164

Velocity is the new GTK2 version of GFileRunner:

http://gfilerunner.sourceforge.net/index.php?menu=1

Anyone tried it? Looks interesting.

Not sure velocity FM is even maintained anymore as the homepage no longer exists. Only thing velocity I can even find is the velocity template engine.

Re: Any non-spatial, non-MC, GTK file manager out there?

Yeah I know. Although if you read that FreeBSDForums post there is a FreeBSD port already... strange tongue

But GFileRunner is up and running, although it's GTK1. Have a look.

EDIT: It's not a "no longer exists" thing, but a "doesn't exist yet" one...
