File Managers and FTP Clients for Linux
|Description:||File manager. No FTP support. FTP in the next version?|
|Licensing||Free for personal use. Shareware otherwise.|
|Other comments:||Quite pretty (IMO) . Doesn't look ugly and grey. Interface is a lot like that on an ftp client. Quite nice. Very configurable, seemingly infinitely so. Support for tear-off menus. It basically works by means of a button panel which performs various operations. For example, the move button moves the file from left directory to right, 'XV' button launches XV. DOuble clicking on a file will launch an app. For example, double click on a ".C" file and it will launch a text viewer. Operations like tar, gzip , etc can all be performed from button panel.|

|Licensing||GPL. It is suggested that you send a cool postcard to the author, but you are not obligated.|
|Other comments:|| Quite pretty (IMO) . Doesn't look as cute as X-Files. Still, the
ftp thing is a plus. interface feels very "ftp-ish".
Here is their feature list.
Simple and powerful interface.
|Licensing||Free (but uses motif)|
|Other comments:||Uses afterstep icons. Colour can be configured. Default is ugly grey. Opened in a huge window. Need to change default geometry. I think this can probably be done post-compile. Looks quite nice. Most importantly, supports reget function. Worst thing about it is that it's too darn big (770k tar.gz format) since it's static motif. Still in developemental phases. I didn't test it heavily, but installed it and pressed some buttons without it crashing.|
|Other comments:||Not really a file manager in the same sense as the others. Definitely a utility though. The LSM entry calls it a "Desktop manager". I found it kind of confusing, but then, I am very tired right now.|
|Licensing||GPL, but "binary only release due to code restrictions". ???|
|Other comments:||Big (larger than 1 MB). Primary ftp site at Sunsite. Annoying that only the static binary is available.|
|Other comments:||Motif. Static binaries not available on Sunsite.|
|Other comments:||Static Motif. Ugghh. Haven't had the time to download yet. 1MB in tar.gz form.|
