Too bad I don't have a middle click (two buttons, no scroller or so).

Anyway thanks for the advice, I'll give it a look!

And gmc? No clue about that... since gnome v2 is that one not included anymore. Used to be a really nice one, actually liked it best as well so far (browsed tgz, rpm, etc nicely - very convenient sometimes)

Even if enlightenment and gnome don't go together anymore (shame!) you can 
still run the gnome panel on Enlightenment. run "panel" or "gnome-panel" from 
a terminal. for a file manager: is the glory of gmc over allready? :-) 

Or else try endeavour mark 2.
