ranger is a file manager with VI key bindings. It provides a minimalistic and nice curses interface with a view on the directory hierarchy. The secondary task of ranger is to psychically guess which program you want to use for opening particular files.

Compiled in racy 5.5, so against python 2.6
The dependencies:
python from devx_racy_xx.sfs
ranger-1.6.1-i486.pet
Description  filemanager

Subject description: ..hard work to get it working...
 

I compiled the latest version on puppy Tahr and Akita, but cannot get any file previews to work on either one...

I already compiled and installed atool, caca-utils, mediainfo .. still no previews at all...

But highlight, w3m refused to compile on Akita and on Tahr .. didn't have enough time to work out why .. imlib and imlib2 (inc DEV pkgs) were installed etc...

1. Does anyone have ranger working proplerly in puppy yet??

2. And does anyone have chardet (and pip?) working on puppy?

I have ranger working pefectly on elementary OS (ubuntu 14.04)..

To fix previews:

You need to go into /usr/local/bin/ranger and turn the False to True where it disables previews just for root... Then it can all be hooked up nicely..

Pdftotext didnt work for me, so i had to edit ~/.config/ranger/scope.sh ... I made the pdftotext bit read like so:

pdftotext $path > /tmp/file; cat /tmp/filw

.. then it worked..

I'm using w3m to preview the images, the only terminal where this works perfect is mlterm... just in case anyone else cares...

I recommend 'green' for a super lightweight terminal pdf reader that looks great - you can add it in ~/.config/ranger/rifle

I got feh working in X very nicely, and also fbi in non X for actually opening images fullscreen (not just previews inside ranger)..

.. Also links2, using framebuffer so it works in both X and non X environments can be used like so:

links2 -driver directfb http://blah.com

.. You might need to edit some directfb files in /etc to add the screen resolution you need...

Also for whatever dumb reason, puppy is missing lots of environment variables ... To make vim work fully, you will need to edit (in a rranger wrapper, or in /etc/profile, or ~/.bashrc) this:

export VIM=/usr/share/vim/vim74/ # <--- (or similar)
export VIMRC=~/.vimrc # <--- (or similar)
export PAGER=less
export EDITOR=vim
export DEFAULTBROWSER=links2
