If there's one thing that is going to drive me away from Gnome, it's the crappy GTK file managers.

Thunar has some odd drag and drop bugs that bug me, and the way it focuses on the panes is very odd, so often I will think one pane is in focus when it's not.

Double commander is just a mess

Nautilus is broken on my install.

Nemo doesn't remember position. Same with pcmanfm.

I tried Krusader and it doesn't work great in Gnome. Neither does Dolphin.

I wish Spacefm wasn't abandoned.

@dschier takes over a minute to load or change directories

@dschier I haven't looked into it,tbh. I don't care for nautilus even when it is working. But having it as a backup may be nice. So I may troubleshoot it.

@dschier I get this over and over:

While adding page: duplicate child name in GtkStack: Downloads

But for different directories and files. And Nautilus just freezes.

@angrylinus I like terminal file managers. Yazi is great. But I do a lot of drag and dropping and that means I have to go GUI

@dschier I saw that thread/bug report too. But I don't even have a Template directory.

thelinuxcast,

@dschier Creating one did speed Nautilus up. I do use an alternative home structure, so maybe because it doesn't see things where XDG Dirs thinks they should be. I have that file defined for the new locations, though, so IDK.

@angrylinus I've used it before, it is janky af. And afaik, it doesn't work at all in wayland.

@thelinuxcast lots of weather around Michigan but clear for now lol. Kind of surprised tbh.

@ryankage I don’t think we’re supposed to get anything until Tuesday. But even that’s gone from the Weather app. But channel 8, still says storms on Tuesday.

@ryankage Half the time mine doesn't load the precipitation on the map at all.

thelinuxcast,
@thelinuxcast@fosstodon.org avatar

@ryankage Yeah, I just installed Accuweather and use that. The ads are annoying but it works better

thelinuxcast,
@thelinuxcast@fosstodon.org avatar

@ryankage Seems like it

thelinuxcast,
@thelinuxcast@fosstodon.org avatar

@ryankage Yeah they get pretty obnoxious. I may just end up paying for it. IDK

Might right shoulder has been pretty fucked for the past 2 days. I wish I knew what I did to cause this; is this what aging feels like?

thelinuxcast,
@thelinuxcast@fosstodon.org avatar

@JLW_the_Jobber yes. Get used to it, buddy

There's a big part of me that wants to ditch Gnome and go back to KDE Plasma. It's the part that sees something shiny and wants to touch it.

@frassmith LMDE, isn't that abandoned for LXQT?

thelinuxcast,
@thelinuxcast@fosstodon.org avatar

@frassmith lol, I thought you meant the DE. They really didn't do themselves any favors with that name

@zstg Yes, but reading is hard, lol

The comments on my videos have been way more negative lately. Not sure what I'm doing differently.

Or maybe just the internet is getting more troll-y

@thelinuxcast@fosstodon.org avatar

@Ric I won't switch, since I do actually have a good audience for the most part on YT. But I am over there. https://tilvids.com/c/thelinuxcast_channel/videos

I know that my camera position is off in the video I just posted. I think it was still using the wrong webcam. Something is funky with my Brio
