  • Using Ubuntu 17.04 with GNOME 3.24.2 shell. NO bugs at all, unlike I had with Dolphin, Nautilus and Midnight Commander. Was able to connect with my home net and manage all my files without problems. I am not so sure I agree with the “no root” complaint. If I want to use PCManFM as root all I need do is start it using the CLI, cannot even figure out why I would want to do that. If I was still coding PCManFM would not be my choice of file managers anyway. Great software, lightweight and functional, highly recommended. Thank you Hon Jen Yee.

  • use it with (k)ubuntu 16.10 perfect for root access :) dolphin doesn't work with root access... one minor: PCMan does not support USB harddrive (or any other device) i have usb package installed, so should work...

  • I use Liuxmint 17.2 Mate on an old Samsung x20 notebook, I switched to PCManFM 1.2.0 and now I have a fast and *stable* system. Nautilus/Caja sucks to much RAM and frizzed often the whole system. PCManFM had the most what I need, the design is nice, I can configure nearly all - thumbnail view, icons size, desktop; way better then Thunar and other I tested (a lot). PCManFM is fast, opens windows fast, show desktop fast, Drag and Drop, tabs - a lot! I missing the 'Open as Root' but its possible under |Tools| > Executing a command with > gksu pcmanfm or you use *Actions* Here some examples: <forum.slitaz.org/topic/custom-actions-in-the-pcmanfm> German site explain it: <wiki.ubuntuusers.de/PCMan_File_Manager/Benutzerdefinierte_Aktionen#Ordner-mit-Root-Rechten-oeffnen>

  • I use PCManFM along with vifm. Light and useful when I have to do some intensive file-management.
