Filezilla on a Mac is crippled unless you use the pro version which costs
money. Pathfinder is also a paid app nowadays. I used it long ago when it
was still free. Not so bad. Though I plan to give Krusader a try.

Thanks on the unison tip. I'm going to try it out. I do most of my
recording and class work on the Mac and plan to mirror that on a couple
Linux boxes for back up and since I do most of my editing and final work on
recording on Linux. It'll be handy to have the mixdowns pushed over to a
Linux box automatically.

KDE4 was a good distribution. I ran it on this machine for years and it ran
great. Tried KDE 5 when my distro ceased being supported. With 4 gigs of
RAM the machine became unusable. Gnome just as bad. Switched to Tinity and
it's working well. So KDE 4 apps are just fine with me. In fact I've
switched all my machines to Trinity except 1. I only use it as a jukebox
and file storage. Even that is pushing it. Before I shut down Akondi I
could boot and that was it. The KDE 4 version of Krusader I really liked.
KDE 5 version isn't noticeably different.

I think the person who started this thread is using KDE 5. They didn't
state what version.
