GNOME Commander

GNOME Commander

GNOME Commander is a fast and powerful graphical file manager for the GNOME desktop environment.

The user interface is based on the orthodox file manager (OFM) principle, also known as Commander-like file managers, the family of file managers based on the venerable Norton Commander interface, such as Midnight Commander.

The software is built on the GTK-toolkit and GnomeVFS. GNOME Commander aims to fulfill the demands of more advanced users who like to focus on file management, their work through special applications and running smart commands.

This program is not aimed at users wanting the weather forecast in a sidebar in their file manager!

 GCMD 1.4.5
