PostPosted: Sun 22 Apr 2007, 19:17    Post_subject:  Pcman file manager  

I just recently compiled and installed pcman file manager. Its a really quick tabbed file manager. If anyone would like to try it here is the binary. You will also need these files:

libgtk2.0-dev >= 2.6
libglib2.0-dev >= 2.6 (2.10+ is highly recommended)
libgamin-dev or libfam-dev (libgamin is better)
libstartup-notification0-dev
Gnome-icon-theme-2.14.2.pup
Shared-mime-info-0.18.pup

Which you should be able to find here thanks to MU.

Must sleep now, so no dotpup, but just unzip and click on pcman or drag it on your desktop.
It is just 1 file.

Very nice file manager, although I was unable to install it on Puppy (need more time to download all dependencies). It's a pity that the development was suspended, because there are still some bugs left. Desktop icons are enabled from preferences, but it is impossible to pin them where you want to - whole desktop works like a folder.
I wonder how it compares to other file managers (ROX, Thunar) on older systems by speed and memory usage? ROX is very nice file manager, but has quite confusing context menus, especially for novice user, and Thunar has no support for desktop icons.

Development has ceased? Why does LXDE use it?

I would assume because Hong Jen Yee is the developer of LXDE as well as PCManFM. He hasn't really done anything since 2006 except for a 2007 release of gpicview. However he did just post this a week ago:

Thanks, it's really fast.

But, can you mount/umount devices with it? I can't. Embarassed

To see icons do this:

Look at /root/.gtkrc-2.0

If you use my MU-Gtk-Themechooser, you have it.
It has such a line:
Code:
include "/root/.gtkrc.mine"
# -- THEME AUTO-WRITTEN DO NOT EDIT


So create that file:
/root/.gtkrc.mine

It must have this line:
Code:
gtk-icon-theme-name="gnome"


Now if you installed the high-color-theme (that has no icons, it has only required textfiles), and the Gnome icontheme, then you see Icons in this filemanager.

If you do not use /root/.gtkrc-2.0 , then search in /etc/gtk-2.0/
But I think Barrys themechooser does not add the line to include your own rc.

The MU-Gtk-Themechooser is part of EzPup, or get it here:
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Desktop-Tools/Gtk-Themechooser/

In Puppy 3, you might need this library too for the filemanager:

To see icons on the desktop, do this:

this is not optimal.
Create a folder /root/Desktop/
I had to open a new Filer-window, to see it.
Now copy there a file or symlink.
Now goto "edit - preferences - desktop".
Check "show files on Desktop" and confirm.
Now a Window is opened as desktop-background (the same trick that Rox uses).

It shows the file you copied to /root/Desktop/.

Note that you cannot drag those files to move them.
If you drag, a "copy file" dialog opens instead.

I uploaded a patched version as dotpup, see:
