ROX-Filer uses the Gtk+-2.0 scroll events, so it should work
just like any other Gtk+-2.0 program. If not, please report it
on one of the ROX mailing lists.

Rox with imwheel
I can't get Rox to work with imwheel. Does anyone know why Rox ignores keyboard inputs from this program? It would be great if it could support this feature.

ROX filer is FAST
This file manager is just incredible. It is exactly what the CLI-lover would want in a GUI file manager -- it is incredibly fast, even on slow systems. Loading a directory with 10,000 files only takes a second or two.... All the functionality is very similar to the command-line tools (rm, mv, etc...) ---- customizing your icons, file associations, etc. is all very simple. This is just an all around great piece of software. No X desktop should be without it.
