@olivia I mainly use nnn but when I *have* to use a graphical manager I use caja and it seems ... fine.
@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.
