The program you seek is Xfe (Xfile explorer) which is available in the PSI repositories. It requires Fox shutterbug be installed, too, as that contains the library dependencies.

Hope that helps.

Or you looked for this:

http://dotpups.de/dotpups/File_Managers/TuxCommander-0.5.91.pup

also like the old Norton Commander (with gui).

Oh, now that's great! Surprised I've just ditched my Xfe and Fox-shutterbug in favor of Tux Commander. Great stuff! Thanks, weredog!

If you're a refugee from the Land of Redmond, you might like ytree. Check your dotpup/pupget/petget package manager for it.

a little problem with tuxcommander

These dependencies required by TuxCommander package are missing:
File /usr/lib/tuxcmd/libgnome_vfs.so has these missing library files:
libgnomevfs-2.so.0 libbonobo-2.so.0 libgconf-2.so.4 libbonobo-activation.so.4

The PETget package manager does not know what package/s has/have these libraries.

is this only for a virtual filesystem????

oliver,

i don't know about the .pet package for tuxcommander, but i just dloaded binary from here:

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/tuxcmd/tuxcmd-dev-0.5.70-bin.tar.bz2?download

and it works straight away. ( it also has aplugins folder containing libgnome_vfs.so & libnull_plugin.so)

Ytree is a fine app but the official one doesn't work right with consistency. One should make their own compile and note the difference in file size also.

The compile is very easy.

Thanks for info. I agree that it can be useful for those 'refugees'.

- but not enough for the rest of us who made their first steps with NC. Wink

Excellent - just decompress and run tuxcommander!

Thanks for the URL, muggins.
