Someone who had tip? I have used Gnome Commander, and it's good. Is there a way to set it for standard?

Are you just asking for suggestions?
If so, my favorite is Thunar.
To make it the default file manager:

You could try to adapt the instructions in this guide to your specific case:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DefaultFileManager

However, if you are aiming for something more light-weight than Nautilus, I'd rather suggest Thunar. I, too, use Gnome Commander for some few tasks, but I wouldn't use it as the default file browser.

Regards.

EDIT: Hehe, IWantFroyo beat me in the last second! :P

I use pcmanfm , which stands for "PC man file manager".
It allows for for opening terminal from the directory that is in use, and is extremely light weight.

You can press Alt+F2 and enter
gedit .local/share/applications/mimeapps.list
Inside it, under the section named [Default Applications] you can enter
inode/directory=gnome-commander.desktopI don't have Gnome Commander installed myself so I'm not sure if the .desktop file is really called gnome-commander.desktop. To find that out you can enter this command in a terminal:

ls /usr/share/applications/ | grep -i commander
