Marlin is a lightweight file browser built from the ground-up to be responsive, simply designed and easy to use. It will be the default file browser in the next release of the elementary project’s OS.
Marlin is based on gtk3 and uses Gnome 3 technologies extensively and is built in C and uses vala for interface. Some key features of XFCE file-browser Thunar too are included to give it a certain slickness despite it being a File browser.



Marlin Features:
  • Tabbed browsing
  • Multiple-views
  • Single-click to open (default)
  • Configurable toolbars and interface
  • Plugin framework
  • networking support (SSH, FTP, Windows share, HTTP and HTTPS)
  • single click/double click to open file
  • And Many More

To install Marlin File Browser in Ubuntu/Linux Mint open Terminal (Press Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy the following commands in the terminal:
  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:marlin-devs/marlin-daily
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install marlin
Also Install UbuntuOne and DropBox Extensions for Marlin:
  • sudo apt-get install marlin-plugin-*
That's it, Enjoy
