#RaspberryPi – Double Commander on #RaspberryPi4, because files are important!

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi !

As a Windows User, I was never happy with the out-of-the-box File Explorer, that’s why I’m a big fan of Total Commander. The 2 panels mode to move or copy files between the panels, or the quick access keys, ftp connections and more, makes Total Commander a #MustHave tool in my Windows 10 Station.

I started to look for something similar for Raspberry Pi, and after a couple of tests my choose is: Double Commander (see references).

It’s easy to install, just this command

sudo apt-get install doublecmd-qt

And it will appear on the Accessories menu.

So far, Double Commander, is part of my setup list of tools to be installed on Raspbian for my Raspberry Pi 4 developer station!

Happy Coding!

  1. I’ll write in English but my mother tongue is Spanish. I saw your comment, looking for a problem,at least for me, in using doublecmd in my rpi environment. You showed main window as I have in mine installed version. I want to know how I can see all icons in menu, functions F3, F4, etc., as I see in Linux Mint or Ubuntu or any other distro. Discs are one over other. I only can see something like a stain. Can you help me to change this?


    1. Hi Rodolfo

      These days I’m mostly using RPi in bash mode. I’ll enable the GUI and give this a try to see if I can find that option. I’ll let you know.



  2. I installed the QT version on RPI4 (bullseye), but the menu item for Double Commander was missing. There was nothing in /usr/share/applications or /.local/share/applications.


  3. Please ignore prior comment; the install failed due to network connectivity. Now DC is working fine.
