Ubuntu other file managers

2012-05-07  Source: Original Site  Category:Ubuntu  Views:0 


ive used Nautilus, Thunar, and Dolphin, but none of those are as minimalistic as i want (visually), which is just the window to show the folders and the titlebar; i dont want to have to see the 'file view etc' bar, just an area where the actual files/folders are (and perhaps a toggle-able sidebar)

anyone know of one? :P
