Finally the File Manager of your dreams - Sunflower

Filed under
Software

The dream was for a Gnome integrated File Manger. Yes, surprisingly file managers are making to dreams of geeks and this file manager is the result of one such dream. Named Sunflower, this file manager is a true hands-on code, which most will like to explore and want to contribute.

The intention was to take it beyond the capabilities of the much loved Midnight Commander. The dream was to overcome the limitations of speed and lack of options using the Gnome Commander, Tux and others. Developed in Python, it is a twin-panel file manager for Linux.

Sunflower Licensing Policy

The sunflower developer has chosen the all-encompassing license structure GNU GPLv3 and presently offers weekly releases. Some users liken it to Dolphin, a rich-feature browser and some to Nautilus (without the ton of dependencies required for gnome) file manager. Sunflower is a neatly packaged file manager for those on the lookout for feature rich file managers as well as speed in an OFM.

Calamares 3.0 is a major milestone, ending the support for the 2.4 series, which recently received its last maintenance update, versioned 2.4.6, bringing numerous improvements, countless bug fixes, and some long-anticipated features, including a brand-new PythonQt-based module interface.
  • Due to Popular Request, KDE Neon Is Adopting the Calamares Graphical Installer
    KDE Neon maintainer Jonathan Riddell is announcing today the immediate availability of the popular Calamares distribution-independent Linux installer framework on the Developer Unstable Edition of KDE Neon. It would appear that many KDE Neon users have voted for Calamares to become the default graphical installer system used for installing the Linux-based operating system on their personal computers. Indeed, Calamares is a popular installer framework that's being successfully used by many distros, including Chakra, Netrunner, and KaOS.
