I like gnome a lot (except nautilus) but decided not using it because it's dog slow at rendering the desktop and consume too much memory for what it does and the machine becomes sluggish after 24h or so...KDE is a lot better in those area + konqueror is a better file manager IMHO for large directories.
Konqueror is an infinitely better file manager.... Sometimes I sort of with gnome would give up on this silly file manager notion (but that's cause I stopped using file managers after starting to use Gnome)...
What irritates me most is the new file selector though (from 2.6). Please oh please see in your finite wisdom (sic) to give me a way to TYPE INTO THE BLOODY THING! Gtk went from the best file selector to the worst inside one release...
You can press ctrl-l in the file selector to type.
well, personally I can't stand konqueror and all its icons, bar, menus an widgets all over the window, and I hated the old gtk+ file-selector while I consider very satisfying the "new" one... 1-1
please, remember that you're personal opinions are not an universal measure of things
> give me a way to TYPE INTO THE BLOODY THING!
It exists. You just have to try it.
Type the name of the file to jump to the file. Keep typing to select the exact file.
Or press / to type the full path into the location dialog, seeing a drop down list of possible completions along the way.
I don't see how the sequence of key presses is much different to typing into a terminal, or the old file manager.
By the way, Nautilus has great keyboard navigation too.
