Thanks, SFR. Packit, UExtract and Multi-Copy-Paste are excellent utilities. Have you produced any other useful utilities?

Well, depends on what you find useful. Wink
Some highlights: Find'N'Run (and Step's fork), LockState, MagDock, MultiRename, TAS.

Greetings!

Consider adding capability to create 3fs and 4fs (mkfs.ext3 and mkfs.ext4) for next version.

Interesting, I don't have '.text' dir in Fatdog, but indeed adding it creates a duplicate.
However, just installed PackIt in easy-2.2.11 and clicking a text/plain file shows only one PackIt menu item, even if '.text' dir also contains PackIt symlink.
In fact, I didn't see a duplicate menu entry for PackIt in Easy at all...
In Fatdog I see the duplicates only if I select multiple items of the same MIME-Type and it's caused by '.group'.
EDIT: unless you mean the 'SendTo/OpenWith' case? Yeah, there are some duplicates, but IIRC fixing it would also disable PackIt in the root menu in some cases...


Yes, right-click, then choose "Open with...", you get duplicate entries of PackIt for a text file.
I can't think of any situation where PackIt would not be listed in the root right-click menu. The 'globs' and 'types' mime files are pretty comprehensive, should cover all the types of text files that we are likely to encounter ...I think.

I was thinking about it at the very beginning, but since it's only for storing stuff, I didn't see a need for a journaled fs.
Recently I even wanted to remove that option whatsoever, but since it can be used to convert a savefolder to savefile, maybe it has some practical use.
Will see next time I'll be doing something with PackIt.

Just checked and now I remember why I decided to add PackIt and UExtract symlinks in /etc/xdg/rox.sourceforge.net/{SendTo,OpenWith} dir (the main dir, not .something subdir).
Without them there's no UExtract (1 & 2) and PackIt (2) option in 'right-click -> SendTo/OpenWith' submenu at all, if:

1. given file type is not handled (properly) by ROX, e.g. "Macintosh HFS Extended version 4 ...", which is reported by ROX as 'application/octet-stream', but UExtract can extract it,

2. given file type is handled by ROX, but was added _after_ installing PackIt/UExtract and therefore the relevant subdir in /etc/xdg/rox.sourceforge.net/{SendTo,OpenWith} doesn't exist or does not contain symlinks to both apps.

Thanks to those symlinks they are at least always accessible via SendTo/OpenWith submenu, but in other, "normal" cases there are duplicates, unfortunately.

As for ROX's text (but also image, application, etc.) - I wasn't quite aware of those "parent" MIME-Types and that they are also creating duplicates. I may want to do something about it in next version, indeed.

Greetings!

Yes, need for conversion of savefolder to savefile has been coming up in posts lately. That's why I'm suggesting adding 3fs and 4fs. Wink
PS: You may want to add a user option for the size of the savefile to be created.

Yeah, I just realized, too, that since the the size of .2fs created by PackIt is equal to the total size of its contents, it needs to be enlarged afterwards.
Hmm, I think a separate utility just for the purpose of converting savedir to savefile would be a better and neater solution in this case...

Greetings!
