@uoou I've been using ranger sometimes, but for moving things around I'm not very efficient with it (at all).
@olivia tui file management takes some getting used to but I find that I'm quicker with it now (after.. a year or two).
@uoou it's a lot quicker to find and open things, i think. but for me it gets complicated when moving and copying a bunch of files around.
@olivia for copying/moving stuff around, tabs are key.
Like open a tab at source and destination and then paste away.
@uoou oh you mean in ranger? or nnn? I've seen ranger has this feature but never used it.
@olivia Yeah, both.
@uoou someone suggested pcmanfm. might check that one out 🧐
@olivia I think I used that one very very briefly. My vague memory was that it was a bit *too* spartan for a GUI file manager.
@uoou from someome that uses nnn that must mean something... 🤔
@uoou also: you think nnn is better than ranger? can you make it have at least two columns? are keybindings less vim-maniacal?
@olivia No. I switched from ranger to nnn because it always bugged me (for no practical reason whatsoever) that ranger runs the whole of python to do simple stuff. nnn is just a tiny little c binary.
Plus I never found more than one column useful and, no, nnn can only have the one.
@uoou well in that case I'll stick with ranger 😋 and continue on trying to master the evil keybindings.
@uoou what makes caja a good one you think?
@olivia honestly I think all file managers are at least a bit shit and caja's just the one that irritates me least. It's got a clean interface and doesn't do anything that annoys me.
It's sole use for me is for dragging images into Discord so my opinion here is probably not worth a lot...
