i have no need for it these days and can be more productive just using nautilus.
i used to be in a job where i would have to use a similar unix file manager all the time, and i got really used to it and adept with it. but that was then. at the time, i found that once one gets used to it, one can accomplish lots of file-management tasks really easily, quickly, and convenently.

MC rules. But still a little bit sad that there's no *proper* alternative for Total Commander. CLI is good, but...

nice that it shows the script files. not sure if that makes up for the disadvantages of a terminal based file manager though.

There is. I use krusader, and it's great, and almost like tc. :D

I love Total Commander. I started using it at version 2. It is the best software purchase I ever made. Krusader isn't bad, Gnome-Commander isn't bad either.

MC is the one, the only, the sweetest file managing software.

MC RULES

I like MC too... but I need a shurtcuts reminder...
Do you have a good one??

Shortcuts reminder? You simply mean shortcut? Jusj click on the desktop, choose create shortcut, and in the command part, write mc, name it, and you're done. If I misunderstood you, it's because of my limited language knowledge, sorry for that.

I prefer MC for editing and navigating in text mode. Far better than Vi ect.

No, but since you've mentioned it, I'll try it.

I'm almost embarrassed to admit that, since I've been using FVWM-Crystal, I'm starting to enjoy ROX-Filer. So now is a good time to hit me with a new file manager. :)

I've tried mc, but I usually end up using vim as a CLI file manager if I need one. :???:

Oh !! Me too, starting with total commander since the very beginning... and after so many years still the same and still soooo fast apps in windows and soo sooo powerful... I use a lot the plugins too
Krusader is big piece of **** compared

I cannot work with krusader. Krusader is for me ugly and tooo slow
mc is for me the one since slackware 3.0, years !
even mc is old, krusader has nothg really much more than mc

mc & total comander rock indeed
I cannot understand programers, new generations of linux users, who never tried mc ... X is not everthg, there is command line lovers !

Forgive my ignorance. What is it that totalcommander can do, that e.g. mc or any of the other Linux applications cannot ?

It's seems to be a version for another OS: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Total_Commander

In my experience, the only rival to TC is Worker, but Worker takes a lot more work to configure.

Thank you, but I know that. I was just wondering if someone could very briefly explain to me what kind of features is has that every other app. is apparently missing.

The main version is shareware – the user should register or delete it within 30 days. The unregistered version unobtrusively nags for registration every time it starts, but it retains full functionality, even after the 30-day trial period.

Some may consider this an additional feature ;)

What TotalCommander has that others don't is the features of Krusader with the speed of GnomeCommander or Worker, plus it is a much more mature program. TC is a superior FTP client to most other dual-pane file managers, has better search capabilities, better packing/unpacking features. The differences are subtle, but if you use these managers enough, you'll notice the difference.

Well, for what I do with file managers, I'm very satisfied with krusader. I installed mc, but don't liked it because of the lack of mouse functions as I remember. Krusader much more resembles to total commander, except the ftp thing, but for that, I use gftp, and it's good enough for me.

How can I get midnight commander to display correctly? I already tried changing the locale and that didn't help.

I have used it, but I usually use the terminal for that sort of thing. Nice app, though
