I'm trying to use
dired instead of a
graphical file manager like Dolphin. With TRAMP, properly
configured, and using fast TRAMP transports, dired can copy files and
wdired make it possible to
make bulk file metadata edits.
When you have two dired buffers side by side, if you rename (
R) or copy (
a dired buffer, with another dired buffer next to it, settings
dired-dwim-target to non-nil will auto-fill the
adjacent buffer in those operations.
setq dired-dwim-target t)(
^ to use
find-alternate-file to go up a directory, again
to prevent dired buffer bloat.
