    From the command line, Midnight Commander (mc) is handy. It's a
    two-pane Norton-Commander-like file manager.

    If I didn't use anything else in KDE, I would still install it for
    konqueror's webdav support.

    How do you copy the files in /home/gert/ for example to /home/ in mc ?

    one by one or is there a other way ?

    with F5 you can copy whole directories, or select all files with the *
    sign first and then F5

    (you can also use the + sign and then fill in *ogg to select only

    i think you can only select one directory and one file no matter how
    many * you use ?
    * is used as a mask on the file name only if i am not mistaken ?

    I dont think you can do cp /home/gert/desktop/* /home/gert/ in cm using f5 ?

    mc used to be my favorite file manager back when I was still using DOS
    in 1993-1994. Copying files is VERY easy:

    - Move to the destination directory in one of the panels.

    - Switch to the other panel and move into the source directory.

    - Hit <Insert> once to select a file or directory.

    - The focus should automatically move to the next file. Keep
    <Insert> down to select more files.

    - Move to a selected file and hit <Insert> again to deselect it.

    - After you're done selecting files in the source directory
    hit F5.

    Done.

    Coloring? Ah yes, you mean ... of course. I usually run my console
    based stuff with TERM=vt220, within misc/screen windows, within xterms.

    So I tend to forget there's anything else but bold, underline and
    reverse video :-)

    <ESC>+<TAB> pops up a list of command completions.

    Hello Giorgos,
    I just thought I'd pass this on to you, if I understand your question. If you are talking about having a graphical style look at your file system like MC ( midnight commander) in linux then maybe this is it. I read about it it here:

    http://www.unixguide.net/freebsd/fbsd_installguide/index.php

    and it is called "ytree". I hope I wasn't imagining things. I've been reading an awful lot lately.

    Not really. I'm most often working in 120-column xterms running screen,
    so anything that can work through a console is better for me.

    That's a nice page though. Lots of useful stuff. I'l keep it in my
    bookmarks for anyone who asks :)
