I do not want a start a file manager flame war, so I am not posting this in the lounge, as I am interested in what GUI file manager you prefer in the Gnome 42 environment. My Gnome 42 has been a pleasant experience mostly since its release. But I am not at all happy with the minimalist Gnome Files. What were they thinking
Gnome Files is a little too cut down for my needs, so I presently use the Nautilus fork, Nemo which is pretty good, but I am open to suggestions.
My main gripe is not about Nemo, it’s that my present cloud storage provider Mega no longer supports integration in Nautilus, so I cannot sync files from inside Nemo, and that would save me a lot of time.
So what GUI file manager are you using on Gnome 42?
My requirements for a fle manager are pretty minimalistic: copy&paste and open and delete files. Thats basically it. What are you missing from Nautilus that Nemo has? It would help to know your requirements if you want recommendations for alternative file managers.
As put by Emmanuele Bassi, a GNOME developer: "there are no real, substantiated, technological reasons why anybody should run a GUI application as root. By running GUI applications as an admin user you are literally running millions of lines of code that have not been audited properly to run under elevated privileges; you are also running code that will touch files inside your $HOME and may change their ownership on the file system; connect, via IPC, to even more running code, etc.
