GNU Midnight Commander (MC), Vifm and Last File Manager (Lfm) are 3 visual file manager applications for the Linux console. All of these 3 applications will remind you of Norton Commander, but each has something special.
1. Midnight Commander
Midnight Commander is probably the most well-known application of this kind and probably the most easy to use due to being the closest to Norton Commander and having the most common operations displayed at the bottom.
In Midnight Commander (MC), arrow keys control file selection, the insert key is used to select files and the Function Keys perform operations such as renaming, editing and copying files. It also supports mouse operations.
