    GnomeVFS? Bonobo? This thing is built on obsolete technologies.

    @David Tombs:

    From user perspective – there is no difference if gcmd uses GnomeVFS or gio/gvfs – it just works ;o)

    BTW – there is NO dependency on Bonobo

    it still does not work in ubuntu 10.10! it cannot open (F4) files from ssh or smb mounts because they are “remote”!!! it ignores system wide mime-mappings!! it is broken!!! please fix it!!!

    Beta Krusader has problems rendering remote directories with more than 1M files. Tasked with moving them it continually crashed and not won’t display the filenames of those files. Uninstalled, running gnome-commander. (CentOS7.4, VMWare 6.5, 6T local NFS, 24T NAS)
