gentoo 0.20.x, for GTK+ 3
This is the home page for gentoo, the GTK+ file manager. The current release series of gentoo is called 0.20.x. It requires the 3.x series of the GTK+ toolkit, which is the current stable version as of mid-2013.
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 double-click 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 0.20.1, gentoo is "GTK+ 3.x clean", using no deprecated widgets from the earlier (1.x and 2.x) series of GTK+.
