X File Explorer is a Microsoft Windows like file manager for Linux. Why I should use this application when many excellent file managers already exist? Because it's small, easy-to-use, very fast, lightweight, and only requires the FOX library to be fully functional.
Below are some features of X File Manager (XFE):
- Very fast graphic user interface
- Small memory footprint
- UTF-8 support (through the FOX 1.6 library)
- Integrated text editor (X File Write, xfw)
- Integrated text viewer (X File View, xfv)
- Integrated image viewer (X File Image, xfi)
- Integrated RPM or DEB packages viewer / installer / uninstaller (X File Package, xfp)
- Copy/cut/paste files from and to your favorite desktop (GNOME/KDE/XFCE/ROX)
