Since nautilus doesn't have a column view option I want to install marlin file manager which provides column view.

I use Ubuntu 16.04 installed machine. I tried several ways proposed on the web to install marlin. But none of these methods work for me.

I really want to install Marlin, not any similar application. How can I achieve this?

  • @karel Nope. I know the marlin can solve the column view. But the problem is it can't install in the Ubuntu 16.04. – Lasith Niroshan Dec 5 '18 at 17:03
  • That's exactly why it's a duplicate, because Marlin has been renamed to Pantheon file manager and is currently being maintained under that name. – karel Dec 5 '18 at 17:07

As explained by karel, Marlin has been renamed to Pantheon file manager.

This is how I solved the problem:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install pantheon-files

To launch Pantheon Files, type Files in the Ubuntu Launcher.
