I friend of mine just turned me onto MIDNIGHT COMMANDER. It looks pretty cool but I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this Program ?

It is cool and powerfull. You can do everything with files from it. It contains the built in text editor which is easier in understanding than vi.

I say more: I want the Midnight Commander in the miniEdition. After that I (and many others) can forget about Knoppix :!: .

I LOVE IT as a Command Line file manager that is so easy to use. I also think that it should be included in the Mini edition.

MC is literally the first thing I install in Sabayon. First edit is to make an entry into grub.conf for a nox boot - given these, you can get out of most scrapes.

Why do you make all your post in Capital Letters


It's kinda rude to type in all CAPITALS

I'm not being rude in my eyes. I am just highlighting what I am talking about. Sorry if I offend you!!

Anway, In the Gentoo forums I posted the same question because I wanted to see if there were any other file managers out there. I was shown 3

http://gentoo-portage.com/kde-misc/krusader
http://gentoo-portage.com/app-vim/vimcommander

Some of the Gentoo users say that midnight commaner is old school yet but I see alot of people saying good things about it. I think I am going to try each one and see which will be best for me.
I thought I would share the info in case someone is shopping around for a file manager.

It's just proper etiquette not type in all caps

Don't shout all the time.
Use the proper case when typing your messages, capitalizing the first letter of each sentence. In an attempt to save time or effort, some folks may leave their Caps Lock on, typing in all caps all the time, while others never use the shift key, typing with no capital letters. Messages written without proper case are hard to read, and you may be perceived as lazy by the reader. In addition, typing in all caps indicates shouting in the on-line world. For this reason, using all caps SELECTIVELY to emphasize a point or indicate anger can be an effective way to get emotion across to the reader. For example, if you compare the following two statements, you will probably feel as if there is more emotion tied to the first statement, even though the words are identical.

PLEASE DO NOT TYPE IN ALL CAPS ALL THE TIME.

Please do not type in all caps all the time.

As far as file manager I just use the KDE File Manager - it works great
