Install Double Commander in Ubuntu
Download .deb package from here now install this .deb package by double clicking or by using the following command
sudo dpkg -i doublecmd_0.4.5.1-1.gtk2_i386.deb
I gave this a try, and while it isn’t bad, I preferred Gnome Commander that you featured earlier as it could connect to a host of remote sites (all the stuff you can do with Nautilus), which Double Commander couldn’t (or at least I couldn’t figure out how).
The version of Nautilus in Lucid now supports two panels.
I can’t find the 64 bit .deb.
DC is to puny for me. I use krusader (2.2.0b1).
It’s an .rpm, not a .deb file. Archive mangler doesn’t know how to mangle it.
