Wondering what window manager and file manager you guys are using...

Currently I'm using fluxbox for my window manager (absolutely love it), but haven't found anything that I really care for yet as far as file managers go (not that I've been looking real hard either). So looking for suggestions on that one.

I also have KDE setup as well, but that's for occasional use only. Typically, I'm preferring fluxbox.

So, what are ya using?

I use fluxbox as well, 0.9.9. for a filemanager, I just use a terminal. Simple enough, and works fine for me.

Using TWM here. Dual head.


and who needs a file manager?

If you do, this guy ( http://www.softpanorama.org/OFM/index.shtml ) has some opinions... Actually, he's got interesting opinions that go counter to a lot of the Free Software/Open Source community's on a lot of things.

when i was using linux, i usually used gnome, and XFCE4 on occaision. hell, i think XFCE4 is great for how good it looks without having to go through days of setting it up, a la TWM.

I use WindowMaker for a window manager and basic Unix file manipulation utilities for file management. I'm a find(1) whore. It's one of the most under-used and unappreciated file tools out there, but it comes in very handy from time to time.

I use Fluxbox 0.9.9, and when I absolutely need a file manager I just use nautilus --no-desktop.

Well being a diehard command line junkie, I mostly just use a terminal window for whatever I need to do as well. It's very easy to piece together a quick bash script for some of the things I'm doing. :) The only thing I miss about file managing is looking at a window with all the files, being able to click on it, and the associated program opening it. That's really about it.

But, I'm loving fluxbox. Thinking of giving xfce4 a try again though. Haven't really decided yet.

Thanks for all the feedback guys! Keep it coming!
