4Pane – A multi-pane, detailed-list file manager for Linux

4Pane is a multi-pane, detailed-list file manager for Linux. It is designed to be fully-featured without bloat, and aims for speed rather than visual effects. In addition to standard file manager things, it offers multiple undo and redo of most operations (including deletions), archive management including ‘virtual browsing' inside archives, multiple renaming/duplication of files, a terminal emulator and user-defined tools.

    Great file manager.

    For some reason all file managers in linux sux in one way or another.

    One gripe with this one too. How do I navigate panes etc. with the keyboard?

    Huh, Konqueror, Dolphin & Krusader in KDE already have this feature. They even go beyond that to furnish multiple tabs. Konqueror and Krusader even offer vertical and horizontal window splits. This manager still has a lot to catch.

    4Pane has those features too: see the fourth and fifth screenshots at http://www.4pane.co.uk/Screenshots.htm

    You can’t atm. Why not? Because I’m a mouse, not a keyboard, person (I’d even forgotten to provide mnemonics until this release).

    However I don’t think it would be difficult to implement, if you want it. Where would you want to navigate *to*, though: the partner pane? the opposite pane? both? And what would you want to do when you got there? Just already-available things like ctrl-C, ctrl-V, or something else I’ve not thought of?

    I took a look at it and quickly decided to remove it from my system. My current go-to is Krusader.
