We do not have mate-disk-utility. It is gnome-disk-utility

I suggest to keep Nautilus (instead of anything like PCmanFM or Thunar) for the simple reason that it manages external HDDs (even with passwords) really simply. At least, not Thunar, it takes too much effort to make this work.

For managing wireless connections, I don't know the other options but I also like the simplicity and straightfordwardness of Wicd.

Nautilus is trash. MATE uses Caja by default and Trisquel 8 should stick to that.

According to this (https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=105714), Caja is a fork of Nautilus.
So I don't care about the name, as long as it does what I suggested earlier.

We all know its a fork, so there is no need to have Caja and Nautilus installed when only Caja is needed for desktop rendering and file management. It is the default file manager for MATE and the Ubuntu MATE distro after all. If you haven't been aware of the Nautilus project the past few years, people actually like Caja and Nemo better as newer Nautilus releases have removed features. Caja and Nemo have retained the previous features and added some of their own.

You can even install the newest Nemo (v3) from http://www.webupd8.org/2016/11/nemo-320-with-unity-patches-and-without.html for Ubuntu 16.04/Trisquel 8. I can see a point in using this if you are using Nautilus on Ubuntu, but MATE's Caja is more than enough.

EDIT:
At least it manages password input , but it seems it doesn't lock the drive up when unmounted/safely removed.
There's probably a way to do it with the CLI, but it's cumbersome.

EDIT2: I does, just make sure you choose the option for not remembering the password, and it won't be remembered. else, you'lle have to reboot the PC.

Anyway, this is just a side note, let's get back to the main topic.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNOME_Core_Applications

This can be used as inspiration. But Maybe Trisquel 7 already has all this kind of programs, I don't know.
At least it makes me think of Gnome Maps or Marble for offline map viewing (which should have an obvious name, like, uh, "Maps"?).

Unless it has changed since Trisquel, 'unrar-free' only supports old versions of RAR, whereas 'unar' supports later versions. Also, I see no need to substitute GNOME's archive manager, FileRoller. It is good. In particular, it is well integrated with the file manager.

Peazip is great and supports everything AFAIK, but AFAIK it is not in the Bunnunntu repo.

The only thing I've seen of Peazip is that it isn't able to open the ReTux archives because it forbids including "|" as part of an entered password. I have nothing against Peazip, but I don't see why you would exchange a more capable and integrated archive manager (which would be Engrampa, by the way, not File-Roller) for a less capable one.

I forgot about PeaZip - I had it in Ubuntu, but lost in when I moved in to Trisquel because it is not in the Trisquel repositories. I really like PeaZip. It may not open as many formats as File Roller (or Archive Manager) can, but I think that its cleanliness of interface make it better for beginners.

I don't see a graphical archive manager there. Perhaps you misunderstand what p7zip-full is? Archive managers such as File-Roller use this to open encrypted 7z archives.

I wasn't recommending it as the archive manager, I was just answering this part, as I like it for dem rars and for other few features. Peazip is great.

The option of opening a .rar without the CLI would be nice indeed. Some other options (didn't try any of these): https://superuser.com/questions/110681/is-there-a-free-ubuntu-unrar-gui

By the way, it's getting hard to read. Is there a way to make an online poll somehow?

I enjoy it nonetheless, I'm discovering tons of cool programs.

File-Roller supports using unar now and has for quite some time. I don't know about Engrampa, though.

I see that the functionality is listed in the specs, but even after installing unar (an extra step one has to be aware of?), I can't make it work :/

I'll look further into it.

And you are right: I wrongly thought that "p7zip-full" includes a graphical interface. My bad.

I would like to point out that a good printer setup application is very important. on T7 we had to put on the gnome-printer-settings as I remember to get a good gui to setup printers.

lolcat is essential......
