Well, I am already spoiled by xfce's thunar. It is lean and fast but still

Yes! This is gedit like it should be :-)

I use gthumb for screening of photos and images. It can to rename the
image. There is even an utility to mass rename according to user specified
rules. This is out of scope for eog and consequently not provided by eom,
either. Unfortunately, current gthumb also suffers from the no-frame-no-
menu syndrome. Any recommendation for a lean alternative?

For some reason, I never felt the need to use file roller in the first

Thank you for the tip. Back in the days when I got seriously annoyed by
gnome3, I felt that the approach of mate is somewhat retrogressive. For
the whole desktop I still prefer the more forward looking xfce way. But
for individual applications and tools that hit a sweet spot in usability,
a decent amount of conservatism may be the way to go.
