Hello Linux Geeksters. Some third party developer has created Filetug, a file manager for Jolla’s Sailfish OS. Among others, it enables the users to easily rename, delete or copy files, create directories, view and play audio, image and text files, install both RPM and APK packages and browse files displayed as grid or list.
The latest version available is Filetug 0.1.2, which has been recently released, coming with support for hidden files.
Because it is available via OpenRepos.net, installing Filetug can be done via either Warehouse or by downloading the Filetug rpm package and installing it directly from the file manager, by double-clicking the package. Download Filetug 1.1.0.
For those who don’t know yet, Jolla is a project developed by former Nokia employees. The first Jolla smartphone is running on Sailfish OS, a modified Megoo Linux system, which is Android compatible, uses Wayland as the default display server , uses Nokia N9′s Maliit touchscreen keyboard and comes with interchangeable covers, allowing the users to easily switch them, in order to change the color/model of the phone and comes with impressive hardware specifications.
While apps with native Sailfish OS support can be installed via the Jolla Store and OpenRepos.net, Android apps can be installed via the same Jolla Store, or via F-Droid, Yandex Store, Amazon App Store, Aptoide and 1Mobile Android Market.
