A: Double Commander is a cross-platform, twin-panel file manager. Details see here.
A: No, this is another program from other developers. It now supports Windows®, GNU/Linux operating systems with toolkits GTK2 and Qt and Mac OS.
A: The goal of the project is to create a program close to TC in operation and with maximum compatibility via the plugins and configuration files. However, Double Commander has some important advantages: it's free to use, works with different operating systems, and is open source.
A: Yes, builds for x64 exist under all supported platforms.
A: Just write to the project's official forum and the developers will (possibly) pay attention to your suggestions.
A: If you have KDE - download a Qt-build; in other cases (Gnome, Xfce, LXDE) a build for GTK toolkit.
A: Repositories for GNU/Linux (CentOS, Debian, Fedora, openSUSE, Ubuntu):
alpha ("nightly") build:
And you can download installation packages deb, rpm or "portable" (binaries packed with bz2) from the official site. Also you can download the source code and compile DC for yourself.
A: They work, but not all of them. Plugins from TC compiled for Windows® can only be used with Windows® version of Double Commander. But if the plugins have open source code, you can try to build them for GNU/Linux (or maybe ask the plugin developer to do it :)).
A: To change the color, you must do the following:
Configurations → Options → Colors (but first you must create your own columns style)
Configurations → Options → Columns, set default style, click "Edit" and configure :)
A: They are as follows:
R — restore color to the default.
All — apply selected color to all columns.
A: Configurations → Options → Columns, set checkbox "Cut text to column width".
A: You must do the following: Configurations → Options → File associations.
A: Add a button from the category separator.
A: You must do the following: Configurations → Options → File views → When selecting file with spacebar, move down to next file (as with insert).
A: A file operations queue was implemented in version 0.4.6 alpha, and will be added to the next stable release.
A: You must do the following: Configurations → Options → Keys → Hot keys → In the category "Main", scroll to see command "cm_MarkMarkAll" and set Ctrl+A shortcut key for it.
A: Add button to the toolbar of the category "menu". See this section for an example.
A: This can been incorporated into Double Commander; however, it's easy to add a command to the Actions item of the context menu. Here is an example of how to open any directory with root privileges:
A: Edit Compiz settings: place windows → windows with fixed positions and window rules → fixed size windows.
Code: (class=Doublecmd) & (title=/)
A: You must use monospace fonts in the viewer and editor.
A: A component used to view the images did not support some JPG files.
A: Yes this is true, but it will be implemented soon.
A: Use "Show as Wrap text" option in Viewer.
