I am using Ubuntu 11.10 and I want to know if there is any other copy/move manager rather than default.

Some features which I would in the copy manager are:

  1. auto start as my session start

  2. copy and resume options

  3. small and lightweight

  4. must be a GUI

  5. having some features for copy management such as duplicate finder, transfer speed control, priority

Use Ultracopie


sudo apt-get install ultracopier


Install Ultracopier Install soundconverter

Ones installed run from the launcher and you will see the icon like this

enter image description here

Click on the icon and add copy/moving -> add copy

enter image description here

You will see the dialogbox like this:

Click the plus button and add your copy file or folder (it will asking you the source folder you wish to copy and the destination folder you wish to transfer)

enter image description here

Ones you did that you will see the copy progress like this:

enter image description here

You can pause, skip or cancel the progress. and also you will see the copy errors under the error and log tab.
