Subject description: Gdmap doesn't work for me
 

If I didn't see the image posted in thread " Gdmap with large file patch", I wouldn't have known what it was supposed to do.
I have Lucid 5.2.8 which has Gdmap 0.8.1. Both windows show only blurs.
How to go about finding the problem?
In the mean time, is there an alternative that will just provide a list of directories and files sorted by size?

Hello, OldAcer.

In the meantime, you can try the following two-liner in a terminal:
Code:
cd /directory/you/want/listed
du -ad 1 | sort -rn

This will give you a list starting with the largest directory.

-- If you wish to see the smallest dirs first, remove the "r" in the sort
parameters.

-- If you want to see the disk occupation in Kb, add a letter "h" in front of
the letter "a", next to the dash, for the du command. (I personally find
this type of listing more confusing, though.)

For help with those commands, please type:
Code:
du --help | more
OR
Code:
sort --help | more

IHTH

Is this a picture of what you see?

Try this:
Start Gdmap.
Under file->Settings->display type
Select "squarified cushioned treemaps".

By far the best FREE program I've ever used to display disk space usage is:
SpaceMonger 2.1.2 Pre3
I've had it for years.
Ran it in Win2000Pro originally.
Now run it in Puppy using WINE.
Haven't used it for a few years now.
MUCH better than GDMAP.

In mine, File -> Settings is default to "Squarified Icons", so it's easy for me to understand by moving my cursor around. Smile

That's what Gdmap looks like for me, too.

The tree command shows directories and files in tree format. It may have an option to show them ordered by size. (Read the whole thread.)
Thanks, musher0 Smile

ncdu and treesize are both very good.

Thanks, Musher0, I never knew "du" could do that. (although mine didn't like anything after the "-a"). Took care of getting the "personal storage" usable.

I also tried the setting "squarified cushioned treemaps", and it worked like the posted picture. I think I had tried that before but didn't realize that a screen like that was actually an useful output.

Question is, is what I originally saw (with others) a bug in gdmap or a problem with certain systems or display settings?

Whoever made the version of Puppy you're using probably set Gdmap to look like that.

OldAcer, Unzip the attached file and put ncdu in /usr/local/bin.
Open a terminal and type ncdu [Enter]



I compiled this in slacko-5.7 so it should work. If not, let me know the exact distro you are using and I will compile it in that. There are many different Lucid's out there, even many 5.2.8 versions. I tested it in rerwin's lupu-5.2.8.7-20161228.iso and it worked fine.

@OldAcer You have to change the Maximum depth to 0 and the Display type to Squarified. WIth Maximum depth set to 3 my Gdmap looks like yours.

Any alternatives to Gdmap?

Baobab is an alternative to GDmap,
Our Puppy Linux attendant, Medor, issued A french version to get it easy to use, for users of Toutous 4.3.6 and Slaxen 6.0 Click the blue, pliz.

GDmap is a wonderful tool. Devs should use it each time to clean remaining stuff from older versions. 20MB had been found in Slaxen, remaining from a previous use of Seamonkey (Palemoon is the new default browser) .

I wish they wouldn't do this. There are some of us running quite capable rigs, which cannot run palemoon (because of SSE2). This affects such things as the "printer wizard" in the menu - all it does is load "http://localhost:631" into the default browser. On my recent installation of LxXenial16.08pup I had to change the default browser to firefox 45, remove the palemoon menu entry, and (fingers crossed) the built-in palemoon package.
