I am looking for a stable and production ready file manager / file explorer for (Ubuntu) Linux, which has a similar approach on UI and directory browsing as the standard Finder application on Mac OSX computers. Any recommandations anybody?
It's the file explorer bundled in Elementary OS. The graphic interface is clearly inspired by the OSX Finder so I believe it's what you're looking for.
Add the elementary repo
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pantheon-files
sudo apt-get install pantheon-files-plugin-ubuntuone pantheon-files-plugin-dropbox
In my opinion, Pantheon looks very much like a prettier version of Thunar (from XFCE) which you might want to check out as a lightweight alternative.
sudo apt-get install thunar
There are a few different options but out of all of the ones I am telling you, I like Dolphin best.
Here is the list of alternatives to Finder for Ubuntu:
- Dolphin File Manager
- Double Commander
Dolphin File Manager is available in KDE Discover
Files is available in GNOME Software or KDE Discover
Double Commander is available in GNOME Software or KDE Discover
Hope this helps!
