    Ubuntu 18.04 (or later) file manager replacement for Nautilus

    I have just moved to Ubuntu 18.04 and hate the new Nautilus.
    I hate the way Ubuntu have removed the file transfer box from Nautilus (since 17.04??) and was looking at Nemo as a replacement.

    Basically I like to be able to see both what is happening during large data/directory transfers and have the option of cancel - this has been ripped out of Nautilus - so having googled looking at Nemo.

    Anyone have any experiences?

    I like Dolphin, but it comes with the KDE desktop !! If you fancied a nice switch, kubuntu or KDE Neon, ubuntu spin, built by the KDE developers I believe

    If sticking with gnome Nemo is good choice, comes on linux mint, never used outside of Mint myself

    No I hadn‘t - many thanks for the post.
    ..... but have now installed Nemo - which is OK - think I need to sort out default icon sizes etc.
    F3 is nice - dual windows.
    Have to get into all the addin plugins and see what they do for Nemo - at least its progressive.

    I like Ubuntu but so often on the next release they go for „fancy“ stuff rather than practicality - but just typical developers!

    I use Kubuntu (so KDE) and on the occasion when I use a GUI to transfer files (basically just when moving them to my 'phone) a transfer notification (with Cancel button) shows up in the System Tray.

    That seems to be the crazy thing with Ubuntu and Nautilus - with 18.04 once it starts you cannot cancel

    Living (and having worked) in Germany, I fully understand that response - there are some apps/products that are just “standards“ !

    Which for copying would be cp, scp and rsync.
