Using the GNOME gmc Client

The GNOME Desktop Environment, which runs with the X Window System, is packaged with a file management application known as the GNOME Midnight Commander, or gmc. gmc is based on an older application called The Midnight Commander. The GNOME version includes an easy-to-use graphical interface which wasn't included in the original.

To launch gmc, select File Manager from the GNOME panel menu, or run the gmc command as follows:

$ gmc &

This will bring up a window like the one shown in Figure 3.1.
