XFile - File manager for Unix/X11

XFile is a compact file manager for Unix and alike systems running X11. It presents the file system as is, without imaginary locations, trashcans etc. XFile uses its own file type/association database in typical Unix/RC like syntax, which is easily editable. Mounting support for file systems defined in fstab, and integration with mount daemons that manage a dedicated media directory is also included.

XFile is easily configurable and customizable with X resources. The application has no dependencies, save for X and Motif, and is built using simple Makefiles. It's written in C, and the source code is freely available under the terms of the X/MIT license.


Latest source code: xfile-src-1.0-beta.tar.xz (Updated on Mar 22 2023).

WARNING: The application is in beta development stage and hasn't been thoroughly tested yet.

See the included README file for build instructions. The application is usually tested on FreeBSD and some sort of GNU/Linux. If you have a question that isn't answered in the manpage, feel free to contact me (Alex): mail(at)fastestcode.org
