Looking for a good file manager as File Browser in Solaris is not really that good or accurate on some things, and typing terminal instructions for all mundane tasks gets boring fast...

Anyone know of a good freeware Solaris x86 file manager?

"and typing terminal instructions for all mundane tasks gets boring fast"
Agreed. I got tired of all the pointing and clicking myself but hey-ho, each to their own. The beauty of the command line is that you can also script your commands to automate repetitive tasks. A good (some might say lazy) sysadmin, might employ a number of these "shell scripts"

ls, rm, mkdir, df, du, touch, find, chmod, chown, chgrp, setfacl and other such tools are pretty darn good.

What repetitive tasks are giving you callous?

all those comments help, I prefer the command line and scripts, but file manager does come in handy for some things
