Can you figure out a way to get a listing of a directory (folder in

What's wrong with the command line? Is "ls -l" too geeky
looking for PHBs, or are you nervous/unsure at the command line?
Or, heaven forbid, will Untrained Users have to do it, and
Linux is too difficult?
I have to agree, a simple 'export listing' on the right click or tools menu
would be nice, check boxes for what attributes to include, sort order,
recurse y/n, humanise units y/n, include totals y/n.
one could also set up a web server (e.g. apache), root document
directory would be root of file system, indexes auto-generated in all
directories... (NO default index like index.html etc.) then just browse
and print from browser:-)
it's kinda funny that while e.g. konqueror makes it possible to
browse file:// it doesn't allow printing (at least the version I just
tried it in)
