Say hello to Marlin, a smart and lightweight file manager for linux

While there are file managers like Nautilus, Dolphin, Thunar, etc. Marlin is quite a good alternative for these. Marlin is one of the lightweight file manager and it is based on gtk3. It has some cool features which should be there in every file manager like tabbed browsing, networking support (SSH, FTP, Windows share, HTTP and HTTPS), multiple-views, configurable toolbars and interface, plugin framework and much more to be discovered.

I could not install it on Xubuntu 16, first two steps;sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/apps and sudo apt-get update, went fine, but when sudo apt-get install marlin, the following error happened and it showed, in spanish: E: No se ha podido localizar el paquete marlin, translated as could not find Marilyn

    1. Sadly Marlin development stopped at 14.04. You cannot install it on 16.xx or higher version of ubuntu until and unless you recompile it for your version.
