Filemanager is working now with CKEditor on my PC and my website.

Free file browsers I know include Filemanager, KCFinder, and elFinder. 
Filemanager is mature and is being developed now, while the other two seem
to stop developing.  If you know other options, please tell us.

I don't think it necessary to make Filemanager a Geeklog plugin, but it is
easy to enable/disable and/or do access control over it.

I am not sure.  If it is necessary to do so, Filemanager can be made to
work with FCKeditor and/or tinyMCE, though.

As Dirk said, it is compatible with GLPv2.

Filemanager is originally implemented as an HTML file and I changed it
into a PHP file to add access control and dynamic configuration.  So I
don't use Geeklog template engine or COM_createHTMLDocument().  Thus, I
use jQuery-1.8.3 shipped with Filemanager.
