What is this
new invention you speak of...
I'm using Ubuntu at work and was wondering if
anyone can recommend any decent file managers for GNOME. I really like
Nautilus but not being able to read or change permissions in FTP (and
constant niggles with timeouts etc - all of which are already reported)
can be annoying to say the least. I work with websites 90% of the time
so FTP is crucial and although I have FTP clients installed I really
want to find something integrated in a file manager.
There's also this new-fangled thing called the "command line". You run
it in a terminal and rather than point,click,drag and drop, you type
commands into it. They're short commands so you don't need to do much
in the way of typing - such as 'ls' to list your files, 'ftp' to access
the file transfer program, 'mv' to move or rename a file, and so on...
For multiple files I would generally use the terminal but as I have
about 50 websites bookmarked it's quicker for me to be able to get
connected with one click, especially as I'm really unorganised when it
comes to remembering usernames and passwords.
