The best file manager

Personally I find Nautilus to be the most powerful file manager, second with Thunar, especially when it comes to browse network. Dolphin is very handy, with the split panel button shown on the toolbar, but it seems to be the slowest when accessing network resources.

The only thing Nautilus annoying is the default icon display at the location. To permanently change it to location bar without clicking Ctrl+L everytime, simply:

  • install yum dconf-editor.x86_64
  • fire up dconf-editor
  • under org > gnome > nautilus > preference > "always use location entry"
  • be sure to have your existing Nautilus instance close, else you will find the check box cannot be ticked.
