It is a fast file manager, but a bit spartan, and it sometimes does not allow me to empty the trash (Lubuntu 17.10 under gnome 3.28). Not sure why it is inconsistent in its behavior. Opening a folder as root was very useful- why is it gone?
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.
