Krusader and Konqueror

Krusader and Konqueror


By Codeknight
Published: Jan 30 2006
Linuxtoday.com published an article that explains the differences between Krusader, a member of twin-panel file managers, and Konqueror, a one-panel multi-purpose file manager.

Krusader and Konqueror

Both applications are file managers, but they differ in the way the user accomplishes different tasks. The difference is not obvious to users that have never tried a twin-panel file manager. One-panel file managers are wide spread since Windows Explorer created the default one-panel file management concept in 1995 and many Linux filemanagers adopted this concept, though in 1986 Norton Commander created an easy to use environment that is extremely powerful, so it became almost instantaneously the default file manager for DOS. Later this concept would become better know as OFM (Orthodox File Managers).



Krusader and Konqueror

Matej Urbancic is a Gnome user who tested numerous file mangers available for Linux. After finding the best OFM available, he joined the Krew to support the Krusader project and help in spreading the usage of twin-panel file managers. This year he started a blog in which he focuses on understanding the OFM paradigm.



Read more about Krusader and Konqueror in the Complete Story.



The upcoming new, stable version Krusader-1.70.0 is planned to be ready for download about mid Februrary. It has many new features to enhance your computing experience. Some of which are the following: improved zipping, improved filters, jump-back feature, color-coded syncronizer, more tabs at startup, Brazilian/ Serbian/ Lithuanian/ Greek languages added, preserve dates on local copy/move, supports Javascript in UserActions, enhanced right-click, octal permission numbers, column types individually selectable, checksum creation/verification files, improved application search, QuickNavigation (hold Ctrl and move mouse over the URL bar), improved text search, improved RPM unpacking, new icons & splash screen artwork by contest winner Andrew Neupokoev (nwmod), as well as some 75 bug fixes, and updates of all language interfaces.

Seems like a good app. But there is much to learn from xplorer2 (http://zabkat.com/x2facts.htm)

xplorer2 is just divine!

Personally i use OFM's for filemanagment since i learned Norton Commander 20 years ago (yea, i'm an old guy ;-) ) , i was never able to adapt to one-panel filemanagers afterwards.
Krusader uses many great idea's that came originally from other filemangers, other ideas where added by the Krusader Krew, and some more ideas where added after user requests. So thanks for the url. Suggestions for new Krusader features are always welcome in our Krusader forum btw. http://krusader.sourceforge.net/phpBB/viewforum.php?f=6 Matej Urbancic used almost every available filemanager that's availble to see what it does ;)
The backdraw regarding xplorer² is that it's not free/libre (opensource) and does not work on Linux.
True, every application can be made better, gazillion ideas are on the krusader todo list, waiting for implementation. http://krusader.sourceforge.net/phpBB/viewforum.php?f=10

Pretty easy to make it very similar but setting different views, etc.
Save it as a profile and can be recalled super fast.

"Krusader" and "Konqueror". How nice does it sounds. And the origin, from words crusade and conquer. Kudos open source. Somethig from microsoft what just explore, it can't beat them :-)


peacefull debian gnu/linux user

What's about Krusader. But here are yet some problems with big directories management in Konqueror. The same for Nautilus. But Nautilus in Gnome 2.14 is very responsive and much more fast and adaptable:

I don't have yet the knowledge to guess Why graphical File Managers are so scaring. But I switched again to Gnome after a KDE ride an a very large "Window" Managers route.

In my opinion OFM is better and a very robust standard. Thats why I never will abandon the better: a well configured * MC *


¿What will happen when you speak too loud and too soon? Ask Linus what is thinking about Gnome 2.14 release.

Then, you could stick to the great Thunar. A very light app and a fresh look into the "graphic" file-managers.

I have made some simple Lua scripts for it, adding some file manipulation capabilities and other tricks. It is very easy on the eyes, practical and responsive.

I know: Thunar can't do many freak things that Nautilus and Konqueror do, but I'm very happy to contribute his name here. We all have our own binary-open-mainstream: "Konqueror vs. Nautilus".
WTF...


Open file-managers can't recognise simple human errors yet: Think about that simple copy, move, erase, "UNDO" thing.

Yes it is too late to be giving opinions here but, you must see gnome 2.4, there is an option to show text bar in preferences.


ION3+GTK2+Rxvt+Lua+Dash and a beautiful Wallpaper. That is what I call: GNU/Linux !! You ever may call it [...] whatever.

I use nautilus for the fact its a little more faster than Konqueror. I don't use Gnome or KDE, fluxbox ftw. Nautilus does that I need for a filemanager. Not as a hog like Konqueror. I wish KDE never intergrated Konqueror the web browers into its filemanager.

Only down side with Nautilus is the lack of nice features.

You are right in your own.

What you think about Thunar like a good matching complement for light desktops?

I just insist, in a more traditional aproach, that I will prefer my warm console to the graphical aproach whistles.

MC for example is thin, but has an outstanding power. I know, it is more complicated. I.E. mime types. But you have more control and bare bone resources too.

I'm just married with ION, it is the definitive desktop. Sorry, a definitive anti-desktop.


What is the more powerful "desktop" for average users? ION3 + MC + Rxvt (What a combo).

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
