gentoo 0.19.x, for GTK+ 2
This is the home page for gentoo, the GTK+ file manager. The current release series of gentoo is called 0.19.x. It is based on the 2.x series of the GTK+ toolkit, which is the current stable version.
This page was written by Emil Brink, original author, and still sole maintainer, of gentoo.
Some of gentoo's main features include:
- Reasonably small and fast (written in C).
- Support for most typical file operations (copy, move, rename, makedir etc).
- Uses GIO, which means file system access is virtualized.
- Direct graphical configuration of most main features.
- A powerful file recognition system that allows you to configure how files of different types are listed (what colors and icons), and what happens when you doubleclick them (start image viewers, music players, etc).
- Includes more than 120 original pixmap icons.
- Free Software, licensed under the GNU General Public License.
- As of version 0.19.1, gentoo is "GTK+ 2.x clean", using no deprecated widgets from the 1.x series of GTK+.
