Remove only Caja, asking you before proceed

Code: Select all

# equo rm -av --nodeps mate-base/mate-file-manager
Install Nautilus, asking you before proceed

Code: Select all

# equo i -av nautilus

..... but a real alternative may be thunar (xfce file manager), because nautilus = caja. :)

Weell, thanks for your answers, but, i dont like Caja and nautilus and that Caja is a fork of nautilus, nautilus is more better that contains many feautres that not have Caja.

Im on the Carribean and i read a lot many blogs about free software and open source and this is that says around this sites.

Anyone know how i can do that the pictures inside my personal directory show a thumbails or preview see?

Thanks!
