Binary package “xfm” in ubuntu maverick
X file and application manager
Xfm is an file and application manager program for the X Window System, based
on the Xaw3d widget set. It provides virtually all of the features that you
would expect in a file manager; move around your directory tree in multiple
windows, move, copy or delete files, and launch programs with simple mouse
operations. Directory displays are updated automatically in regular
intervals when the contents of the directory change. The integrated
application manager provides a kind of "shelf" onto which you can place your
favorite applications, as well as the files and directories you are currently
working with. It also allows you to access different groups of applications
and files. User-definable file types let you specify a command to be
executed when double-clicking on a file or dropping other files onto it.
Last not least, xfm can automatically mount and unmount special devices like
floppies as you open and close the corresponding directories (mount points).
