How To Install X File Explorer (XFE) On Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, Debian, Crunchbang And Other Ubuntu And Debian Derivatives

Hello Linux Geeksters, As you may know, XFE (X File Explorer) is a file manager similar to Double Commander. Due to the fact that it is desktop environment independent, it can be installed on the most popular DEs, including: Unity, GNOME, KDE, XFCE, Cinnamon, MATE, Pantheon, etc. The latest version available is XFE 1.37, which has been recently released.

In this article I will show you how to install XFE 1.37 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, Elementary OS, LXLE, Debian, Crunchbang and other Ubuntu and Debian derivative systems.

Because it is not available via any repository or PPA, we have to download the xfe deb package and install it via command-line. I prefer gdebi over dpkg due to the fact that it also handles dependencies.

How to install XFE 1.37 on 32 bit Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, Elementary OS, LXLE, Debian and Crunchbang systems:

$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ wget sourceforge.net/projects/xfe/files/xfe/1.37/xfe_1.37_i386.deb
$ sudo gdebi xfe_1.37_i386.deb

How to install XFE 1.37 on 64 bit Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, Elementary OS, LXLE, Debian and Crunchbang systems:

$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ wget sourceforge.net/projects/xfe/files/xfe/1.37/xfe_1.37_amd64.deb
$ sudo gdebi xfe_1.37_amd64.deb
