    Anyone recommend a good but simple file manager?

    Something is wrong at my system, until now i was able to run shell script starter for the cryptominer, but now its just freeze for a littlebit, then does nothing. When i try to start it from nautilus, doubleclick, i had set it to ask me what to do with them files, but now nothing comes up, and when i use the run as program, does the same. When i start the script from terminal, its running fine.
    thunar is pretty good. there's also nemo.

      You know, when Gnome Shell was first released, the vertical layout was something it was criticised for, because it was "gratuitously different" to pretty much every other desktop that used a horizontal layout.

I don't know if there are any statistics of how many users use external monitors or prefer mouse over touchpads, so I won't judge whether Gnome's decision is right or wrong. Personally, while I absolutely prefer the vertical layout, I don't think I'll switch away from Gnome, simply because I'm not aware of an alternative that is good enough and does it vertically; everyone seems to focus on that same market of laptop exclusive users. KDE offers vertical workspace layout, but then KDE's workspaces view was useless the last time I tried it.
          As far as I understand, workspace switching is not only done with gestures, but also keyboard shortcuts and keyboard+mouse via the scroll wheel. Actually there seems to be a HUGE improvement with multi monitors. Now you can switch workspaces easily on all monitors, no only the primary as in Gnome 3, so I understand you won' t need to pile up all applications on a monitor and leave the secondary one static.

Apparently when they decided to make the preferences window adaptive they also decided to simplify it. The only features they actually removed are deciding what to do with executable text files (need to always right click and then click "Run as a program" now) and disabling the confirmation for emptying the trash, everything else is either present elsewhere or just condensed.

            MR for reference: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/nauti...e_requests/613
            Thanks for the information.
            It's not much lost indeed. Although I've read someone lately who wanted the confirmation for the trash.

            Indeed, I just tested in Nautilus and can't start them anymore with double click either. Probably something to do with (what they think is) security.
            These shell scripts work in nemo.

              Is the app grid also horizontal now? I thought it was only the workspaces...
              I've always had them vertical on Android, so for me it'll feel unnatural.

                  Well, if it would be only just the double click, but they wont start either with the Run as program in the right click menu... Dunno whats goin on... Have no mood today to actually troubleshoot, just wanna play Satisfactory with the new Update 4.

                    To me my main worry is GTK4: I don't really use Gnome all that much, but I am using GTK3 to get the look and feel I want on my main computer. I actually am using the CDE theme from nsCDE (don't ask), which relies on GTK3... Now I am at the mercy of the nsCDE project for it to update, or learn how to do it myself... I know it'll be years (GTK2 is still a thing), but I like future proofing.

                      No idea, I've never really used it, since keyboard support has always been so convenient.
