Thanks for documenting your fix.

I don't have time to work on this now.

Subject description: Poor lay-out of default details view
 

G'day woodenshoe-wi,

If you find some time to get back to this Smile , I have tried your latest 64-bit version in a 64-bit Pup (LxPupSc-18.06+5) and although I can drag the columns to where I'd like them to be in the 'Details' window, the set-up won't persist.

The next Rox I open has the original poor column lay-out, with the useful-for-me 'Modified' and 'Size' columns stuck out to the right edge and the useless-to-me 'Permissions' and 'Owner' columns in the middle and in the way.

Is there a way to fix the Rox details default to be as the user likes?

Thanks for your time and trouble,

David S.

LxPupSc64 is still the old version - not this new version.....

Can't you go to "Options..."->"List View" and un-tick the check boxes for the 'Permissions' and 'Owner' columns?

I think jun7 may have added the feature you are requesting and has recently merged the copy/paste functionality.

@torm these have your suggested fix, https://github.com/woodenshoe-wi/rox-filer/commit/15b590c7a25bf552c206899fad6586f1c5dc4d30

They also have an updated manual and a cosmetic fix to list view mode.

G'day woodenshoe-wi,

Thanks for the helpful advice to check the 'List' in 'Display' of the Rox 'Options'.

Quote:

Some Pups already had this when I looked but others (older?) did not. And unticking the boxes (where there existed) did persist with new Rox windows having my desired set-out.

Some Pups, while not having this useful List option, did have the default lay-out I like ('Modified' before the other, undesirable columns) so are OK as-is.

I've tested your 64-bit version as a pet in a couple of 64-bit Pups and this gave me just what I wanted; the non-persistance of the column dragging modification is now not a problem with the tick-box removal of the unwanted columns.

In 32-bit Pups, I need to test your pet in some pristine versions. Most of my 32-bit Pups probably have been 'fixed' by me as I had found a manual work-around to solve my problem (= replacing the awkward ROX-Filer file in /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/ with an old version that has the desired default lay-out).

I may try to see if I can use an sfs of your Roxes as this is easier to share with many Pups than repeatedly running a pet for each Pup. However I don't know if with an sfs I can replace an existing application or file or directory.

Thanks for your efforts,

David S.

64 bit version https://www.dropbox.com/s/i3r1ddhqkbwv48g/rox-filer-10woodenshoe-x86_64_common64.pet?dl=1

These fix a segfault that occurs when selecting list view mode in Puppies that use older libraries.
Edit: Fixing the bug causes some display issues in list view mode that were only working properly because of the bug...

Hopefully these fix the display issues without causing new problems... Smile
They should also work with older libraries.

It was a wet, cloudy day today. So I spent the day inside on my computer.

Yesterday I was too busy caching up with yard work while the sun was shining. Very Happy

Thank's Woodenshoe-wi.. I am very like this version.
I have some problem with this new version.

Usually (in regular rox), when i use my "/" to enter path, I stil can use up and down arrow to move from one file to next file. But in version 11 I can not do that.

Ctrl+d is the shortcut to duplicate file in same location, But I think it's good to make automatically when we copy paste by ctrl+c and ctrl+v in same location, it is make another copy file but ends with " - Copy". Somethink like windows or another linux file manager does.
Is it possible in rox filer?

Thank you, Woodenshoe-wi.

I found the commit that causes the problem, [1eb29ad] Upgraded deprecated functions to new versions

You should be able to work around the problem by typing the first letter of the filename you want, then the arrow keys will switch between all files that start with that letter.

The problem is that the old function (g_basename) and the new function (g_path_get_basename) don't give the same results for paths ending in a "/".

This example program demonstrates the problem:
Code:
#include <glib.h>
#include <glib/gprintf.h>

void main () {
   gchar *base = g_path_get_basename("/root/my-documents/");

   printf("g_basename: %s\n", g_basename ("/root/my-documents/"));
   printf("g_path_get_basename: %s\n", base);

   g_free(base);
}


Giving the following output:
Code:
g_basename:
g_path_get_basename: my-documents


I don't know of a good way to fix this while still using the new function, any suggestions would be appreciated.

64 bit version https://www.dropbox.com/s/uayd8xuiupzopyx/rox-filer-12woodenshoe-x86_64_common64.pet?dl=1

I had searched a little on the Internet about g_path_get_basename returning the parent directory when the path ends with a "/" but all I could find was a couple other complaints about the behavior which seems to be an intentional change to make it work the same as the basename command.

I did find a reference to G_DIR_SEPARATOR so I thought I would try to recreate the old behavior with strrchr(path, G_DIR_SEPARATOR); to avoid using a deprecated function that might disappear in newer versions of Glib.

Hopefully I didn't introduce any new bugs, it did take me several tries before I got it working without segfaulting. I am not an experienced C programmer, and I tend to work by trial and error. Very Happy

Thank you Woodenshoe-wi.
You did it.. Very Happy
Thank you very much.

Now, i hope the "paste" script can also paste a file to the same directory, automatically it paste with additional name. Example: copy file: mytext.txt, paste it become: mytext - Copy.txt. When paste again, it become mytext - Copy (2).txt, ect. Is it possible in rox filer? Thank you.
