      Me neither. I came from NC on DOS to FC/2 on OS/2 to MC on Linux initially, and
      later to FC/L also. I never had any interest in exploring ZTB or XTree.

      openSUSE has no currently supported "distribution" in 32bit, but does still
      have 32bit in the "rolling release" Tumbleweed.

      FC/L only runs in X (requires Pango & Cairo among others). Figuring out which
      FC/L to use can be frustrating, but because of

      # zypper --no-refresh se -s -i filecom
      i+ | filecommander | package | 2.50-svn_1899_centos7 | x86_64 | FCunst
      # grep RETT /etc/os-release
      PRETTY_NAME="openSUSE Leap 42.3"

      I would expect there likely to be a 32bit version compatible with TW, 13.1 &
      13.2. IIRC, the FC/ author's Linux personal preference is one of the Debians,
      and he doesn't update his web site very often. There is a mailing list for FC:
      "Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Whatever else you
      get, get wisdom." Proverbs 4:7 (New Living Translation)
