Hi All,
Works OOTB on Precise,raring and Slacko and, of course, Saluki and Carolina. Probably others.
I couldn't find a reference to this pet using a Well-Minded Search. But knew it was available on the Saluki and Carolina repos. Here's the link to it on the latter, which rg66 just compiled using the latest source, 0.8.7: http://www.carolina-linux.com/rg66/X-common-packages/. SpaceFM can be configured to be anything from single pane file-manager to a four pane file-manager, each pane showing a directory-tree or not, independent of the other panes. As far as I can tell it provides all the functionality of rox, thunar and pcman. But rather than duplicate my effort, I'll refer you to my post, http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=726566#726566 where I describe it as the ideal file-manager unless you desire the already built-in extensive keyboard short-cuts offered by xfe.

Where did our French teacher found version 0.9.4 ? i browse the forum. Perhaps he has it in his stores, at ASRI forum.
here it is at surceforge.net, asriedu_packages_31x_base_puppyprecise5xx
"'m happy to see that 0.9.4 allows dragging multiple items, which 0.8.2 did not. And the new device menu is useful. I can't get to Preferences, though. When I click on View/Preferences, nothing happens. I carried over my settings from my previous install, so everything is already as I like it, but wanted to mention that apparent bug. " told us Cimarron
something is wrong with our teacher's package.

Hi Peebee,

I've been installing & testing your SpaceFM.pet (thank you!) across Zesty and several other 32-bit pups I have. It works good, except for one worrying problem I am running across in all installs of SpaceFM. Mainly, when copying anything larger than, say, ~20MB, especially when its 100MB or more (like savefiles), it always stalls at 90-93% of doing the job (pic below). I am wondering if it 'actually' is stalled, or if it is maybe actually finished and it is just SpaceFM itself not getting the proper signal from the pupOS that the copying has finished?

Ran into the similar Problems belham is talking about .
So it seems i am not the only one .
Was not quite sure so i deleted my comment above .
Something is wrong sometime when copying ..Stalled while copying .....just with some special Folders only .
Can not exactly describe and diagnose .
Did also install Spacefm 1.0.5 with Synaptic from Repo on a Bodhi Linux Hardidsk install .Same problem while copying this special Folder (a live Folder from Deb Dog containing a changes folder too ) So it has nothing to do with your pet .

Let me explain.
Case 1. while copying those special Folder --a live Folder from Deb Dog frugal installation- containing a changes folder with an E17 Enlightenment Desktop- plus setup (for Backup purposes) .......copying did stall after ca. 60% ....and never finished .

Case 2. while copying another live Folder --from another Deb Dog frugal installation containing a save folder (just some Openbox Desktop -without E17 Desktop-- similar the same size as in case 1.).....the whole process of copying went flawless .
So i suspect there must be some elements in the first changes Folder which i tried to copy which causes some Error for Spacefm .
Tested copying this Folder with XFE- Rox-Filer-Pcmanfm went without any Problems .
Don`t know what to think .

Hi Backi,

Yes, same thing I kept seeing here. I think it is a problem with the SpaceFM program source code itself. I noticed, in savefiles, if you've got any whiteout files (those deleted from the main .sfs and thus saved as deletes in the savefile), that is where SpaceFM coughs up a fur ball & just gives up. Oh well, it was nice to dream that things were fixed in it. But, like Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown, it just ain't happening. On our arses we go ... Laughing

Yes, it's sad.

And the hard part is I got too enthusiastic yesterday and installed this latest SpaceFM.pet across many of my best pups, making it the default filemanager. I sure hope it doesn't corrupt anything in them until I can get them back to like they were before, because I was moving files around a lot yesterday. Crying or Very sad Dam#, I hate being on the forefront (or maybe it's the backend, lol) and being the guinea pig when stuff gets released & there was/are no testing done to it beforehand.

I've really got to start sequestering my best pups and ddogs away from all the others, possibly on another hard drive completely. That way I can use the pups/ddogs I don't care about to thoroughly test stuff before letting them anywhere near the good ones. Problem is, I luv all my pups/ddogs, even my oldies but goodies, and try to show none as a favorite over the others Cool

Hi belham, backi,

Don't know if it helps, but it is not only spacefm having trouble copying special files (like parcellite fifo_c) when using Thunar it won't copy such a file also (but gives message like "Cannot copy special file" and offering you to skip it)
Folders containing changes often include also such special files.
(using cp from command line works fine mostly)

Hi belham !
Maybe these Problems will be fixed ,,,,,,sooner or later ....who knows ..
I`ll keep using XFE File-Manager ......as good as SpaceFm....just one thing could not manage to do...
how to mount Drives/Partitions directly?
So i just made my Desktop Drive Icons setting to open Partitions/Drives with XFE .
