I find really annoying to use Midnight Commander under OS X when using the non-extended keyboard (laptop). I found no way of simulating an INSERT key press (select file) and I would like to find a solution that does not require me to reconfigure MC, specially because I cannot do this with each machine I'm connecting to from my MacBook. FileZilla is a powerful FTP-client. It has been designed for ease of use and with support for. MuCommander is an open source, dual-pane file manager available on all major operating systems. Copy, move, rename and batch rename, email files; Multiple tabs; Universal bookmarks; Credentials manager; Configurable keyboard shortcuts. I really like Midnight Commander.

Another short post just to remember the procedure for the next time I’ll be setting up a new mac. For those of my readers who do not know what Midnight Commander (aka mc) is, GNU Midnight Commander is a visual file manager, created under a heavy influence of Norton Commander file manager from dark DOS ages For more information, you can visit their web site. Now, get to the installation topic itself.
To install mc on a Mac OS X machine, you need macports installed and then first thing you’ll need to do is to install some prerequisite libraries:
| 1||$ sudo port install libiconv slang2|
Next thing, download the sources from their web site and unpack them. When the sources are ready, you can configure the build:
| $ ./configure |
Mac Os X Sierra Dmg
Then, normal GNU-style build and install procedure:
| $ make|
$ sudo make install
And the last thing would be to add
/opt/mc/bin to your PATH environment variable.
