http://packages.ubuntu.com/breezy/x11/gentoo:
Package: gentoo (0.11.46-1) [universe]
a fully GUI-configurable, two-pane X file manager

gentoo is a two-pane file manager for the X Window System. gentoo lets the user
do (almost) all of the configuration and customizing from within the program
itself. If you still prefer to hand-edit configuration files, they're fairly
easy to work with since they are written in an XML format.

gentoo features a fairly complex and powerful file identification system,
coupled to a object-oriented style system, which together give you a lot
of control over how files of different types are displayed and acted
upon. Additionally, over a hundred pixmap images are available for use in
file type descriptions.

gentoo was written from scratch in ANSI C, and it utilises the GTK+
toolkit for its interface. For more information and screenshots, please
