    PCMan works well with GNOME and has options to "Open Current Folder as root" and also "Open Terminal" .
    Its fast, uncluttered and has tabs!
    Nautilus has "Open Current Folder as root"
    Nautilus has "Open Terminal"
    Nautilus has tabs

    just look for plugins in synaptic for the first 2(I don't remember the names :/)

    EDIT: oops it's an old thread. anyway I'm gonna keep this post just in case

    As others have mentioned, with Intrepid, default.session does not exist anywhere in the file system!

    The main reason I like PCManFM over nautilus is that it allows you to 'lassoo' files to select them. Konqueror does, but it's well heavy.

    I did everything as instructed here to replace nautilus, but I don't like it anymore...

    How do you revert to nautilus?

    I have tried PCMan for a few days manually and I love the speed...

    However I tried this guide and the location for the nautilus file is there,but nautilus is not...

    I really want to make PCMan the default,but it seems the guide is a bit outdated or something...

    Hi guys nice to see that this was useful to some people

    Things have moved on a lot from when I first posted this tip so here is a note.

    Nautilus now comes with tabs, Nautilus extensions allow root and open-terminal use.
    _____________________

    nautilus-gksu - privilege granting extension for nautilus using gksu - Open as Administrator

    nautilus-open-terminal - nautilus plugin for opening terminals in arbitrary local paths

    "gconf-editor" /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_advanced_permissions
    (Show advanced permissions in the file property dialogue).

    gTweakUI - dialogs with settings for Nautilus, the Session and Menus

    _____________________

    I still install PCMan after Ubuntu as a backup file manager but I find now that Nautilus is fine 99% of the time. Permissions is one area that I sometimes find easier in PCMan.

    [UPDATE] But you can tweak the setting via "gconf-editor" /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_advanced_permissions

    You may want to have a look at xfe as well.

    I have no reason to now wish to replace Nautilus with PCMan.

    Cheers!

    Hi,

    To replace nautilus by pcmanfm, i just do that:

    Install the pcmanfm package
    After press Alt + F2 and type gconf-editor
    Go to Desktop -> Gnome -> Session -> required_components and next to "filemanager', replace nautilus by pcmanfm.

    Nautilus does this as well, but not in detailed list view if there is no white space at the bottom of the list... so if your list of files extends all the way to the bottom then you cant "lasso" a file selection...

    You can however do this in the other two views and have been able to for as long as i can remember.

    The one thing pcmanfm has over nautilus is speed. pure and utter speed.
    Fear is the mindkiller....
    The little death that obliterates...

    Hello everyone,

    Is there any nautilus plugin to filter a right hand side pane on file names (I'm not talking about CTRL-s here which only highlights entries and is a many clicks operation). Many OS have this but I can't seem to find it on Linux. The closest I could come up with is dolphin but it's really weird to use.

    For winwoes you can use custom toolbars like StExBar (google it). For Nautilus: nothing !
    It can't be that hard ! can it ?
