I use vifm as my file manager occasionally and was wondering how to create a new directory?!

Both vifm -h and man vifm are pretty short and don't really help..

EDIT: Just noticed that in the MINT repros there only seems to be vifm version 0.4... :-S

  • As Linux Mint is Ubuntu/Debian based, maybe you can just install Vifm 0.7.8 from Debian testing.

To create a directory:

:mkdir <dirname>

(sorry, not enough rep to add a comment on DavidPostill post)

I found for v.0.4 the command had to be

:!mkdir <dirname>
