Not sure if this is what you are after but Midnight Commander has a progress/speed bar when copying/moving files.

i was thinking of a small app. not a filemanager Smile anyways MC looks to mutch like the NC i used back in the day. I think of puppy 5.2 as a modern system and i dont want mixed feelings. thats what i get from MC Smile PCmanFM looks good. if this has a copy option and we can make it default filemanager i would have chosen that option.

can anyone look at these two programs ?

they are called ultracopier and minicopier

That second one is simple enough to run. so long as you have the Java Runtime Environment (5.0 minimum) installed.

All you need to do is download MiniCopier-0.5.tar
and unpack it somewhere, you will get a directory called MiniCopier-0.5

Inside of that directory is a file called: MiniCopier.sh, simply click on that and the application will start.

A java GUI is gonna really slow down the rate of copying -even the progressbar in modern ROX-filer adds loads of CPU cycles. When I'm gonna copy something big, I oen a terminal and use cp to makes things faster. Being able to pause and resume a copy is nice -you could probably achieve the same result with wget. I've coded gauges and progress bars using Xdialog before, but even there you really waste a lot cycles checking the sizes of files, converting that to percentages, etc. The lighteste alternative is to not calculate sizes at all and just show a back-and-forth cursor or changing icons which indicate activity. Sorry, I just hate java more than nearly anything else...

Hi mr Amigo

what do you mean with "even the progressbar in modern ROX-filer adds loads of CPU cycles." is there a progress bar in rox filer ? and what do you mean by modern. Im using Lucid 5.2. does that have a old rox filer ?

thanks for help

regards Einar

I haven't tried this myself or compiled it either, but have you looked at 'Ultracopier' ?
