Marlin, another File Browser for Gnome

We have Gnome and Unity for Desktop Browser, for file browser the Gnome default is Nautilus. But if you want to try a sleek and fast GTK3 file manager then Marlin is the answer.  According to Wikipedia, marlin fish are incredibly fast swimmers, reaching speeds of about 110 kilometres per hour (68 mph). So I believe the developer are focusing on Marlin file browser’s speed and simplicity.

Among the main features:

  • tab support
  • Nautilus-like location bar
  • three file view modes: Icon View, List View and Column View
  • networking support (SSH, FTP, Windows share, HTTP and HTTPS)
  • customizable toolbar, including toolbar icon size
  • single click/double click to open file
  • show hidden files
  • zoom in/out (more…)

Linux Mint 12 “Lisa” , A new hot chick in Linux Town

Why You Should fall in LOVE with Lisa

I like Lisa not just because she offers you different desktop environment but Clem and Co knows really well what end user want. Mint new environment MATE is a great transition to Gnome 3. MGSE in the other hand want to make sure user are familiar with Gnome 3 . Their hardwork had been paid off, now Mint is the most popular Linux Distro base on DistroWatch.

One thing, about Linux is you have the freedom to choose for  what is best for you. That is the idea, so to PC user maybe you can try Lisa for free of charge. Just download her at Linux Mint. (more…)

My Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot with Gnome 3.2

Just upgrade to latest Ubuntu release Oneiric Ocelot 11.10. My first  impression was WOW! no more bugs. Actually I am a bit disappointed with Natty Narwhal Ubuntu 11.04. Lot of bugs and crash with unity and even gnome. Canonical team has worked hard to improve Ubuntu 11.10. Kudos to them.

Unity works smoothly and Gnome will not let you down. If you would like to try them just visit Ubuntu.com to download.
