Midnight Commander 4.8.0 OSX

GNU Midnight Commander (also referred to as MC) is a user shell with text-mode full-screen interface. It can be run on the OS console, in xterm and other terminal emulators.

GNU Midnight Commander allows you to manage files while making most of you screen and giving you a clear representation of the filesystem, yet it’s simple enough to be run over a telnet or ssh session.

  1. Hi, thank you very much for this port.
    I was trying to configure a new skin/colors, but without success. It seems it doesn’t read my ~/.mc/ini file. Do you know if there is another way? Thank you very much

  2. Sergio: MC will read configuration files from folder ~/.config/mc, see:

    $ls -al ~/.config/mc
