Linux File Management (PCman versus Nautilus)

The PCman File Manager (like Thunar) is another fast alternative to Nautilus. I have updated the PCman version 0.5 source code with a similar set of "Traditional Preferences";
  • Location Bar on Separate Line
  • Show Full Path on Title Bar
  • Remove Low Priority Toolbar icons (Refresh - F5, New Tab - Ctrl-T, Open Side Pane) - disabled by default
  • Remove Low Priority Columns (Permissions, owner etc)
I have uploaded the source code and the PCmanfm 0.5 patch.
