[Novalug] Problems with nautilus being slow to load (Bonnie Dalzell)

I don't mean to cross anyone, but firing up a Qt/KDE file manager under
GTK+/GNOME isn't idea. If you're considering Dolphin, just consider
switching to Qt/KDE altogether first, if you think Dolphin works well.
Otherwise, try the more native GTK+/XFCE file manager, Thunar. Another
option that is very light (base Xt with GTK+ bindings) is ROX-Filer, which
a great number of Workplace Shell (OS/2) fanboys seem to crave.
P.S. A great majority of file managers do archive operations in their sleep.
This technology was around on Linux in the '90s as well as for Windows. ;)

Thanks for the suggestion. I will try it out. Certainly loads my /home/bdz
file list faster
One of the things nautilis has is that you can high light a group of
files or a folder and then choose to make an tar.gz archive of them. Is
there a plug in for dolphin that allows you to do that?
