Krusader - The Ultimate KDE File Manager

Filed under
KDE

Years ago when I switched to using Freebsd and KDE full time, I found myself in a quandary. I was in need of a file manager. I found that Konqueror was the primary file manager for KDE. So I tried it. However, I found that Konqueror did not do as good a job as a file manager as I had hoped, even in explorer mode. So I began searching around for a better file manager to allow me to manage my files in KDE. During my testing I tried several different programs, none of which really gave me what I wanted, especially the ones with explorer type interfaces. Then I stumbled onto Krusader, a file manager that really does things right. But don't take my word for it. Let's go look at all the great things it offers.

The first thing you'll notice when you open up Krusader is its dual pane design. These side by side windows provide you with easy file copying and quick file management. The tabbed design also allows you to have more than just two panes open at one time. If I'm doing any kind of site development, updating, file handling or more, I'm usually using anywhere between five and ten tabbed windows at any one time in Krusader. Believe it or not, the "explorer" method of file browsing and management actually isn't the better way to go. In my experience I've used both kinds of interfaces and the Krusader interface is much easier to work with. Sure, it's got a few quirks I wish it didn't have, but aside from those few quirks, it's very solid and does what it needs to do very well.

NVIDIA vs. AMD OpenGL & Vulkan Benchmarks With Valve's Dota 2

Yesterday marked the public availability of Dota 2 with a Vulkan renderer after Valve had been showing it off for months. This is the second commercial Linux game (after The Talos Principle) to sport a Vulkan renderer and thus we were quite excited to see how this Dota 2 Vulkan DLC is performing for both NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics cards. Here are our initial Dota 2 benchmarks with Vulkan as well as OpenGL for reference when using the latest Linux graphics drivers on Ubuntu. Read more

Why Hyperledger wants to be the ‘Linux of blockchain’

Blockchain technology offers many different benefits to enterprise developers — but there’s no cross-industry open standard for how to develop it. That makes it difficult for vendors and CIO customers to place their bets and begin building it into their technology architecture. Hyperledger, a Linux Foundation project to produce a standard open-source blockchain, wants to solve that problem, and it just got an executive director, Brian Behlendorf, to help it on its way. He founded the Apache Software Foundation, was previously on the board of the Mozilla Foundation and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and managed tech VC firm Mithril Capital Management. Read more
