Stemsee, it's possible that don570 already did what you're trying to do, with Copy Fast. Check it out. Smile

neither solution does what I wanted. The first one is only for the entry in the menu. The new pet copies a folder. I like the present rox format with the exception that I want it to use a -f = no-prompt recursive copy as default. I can do it from terminal of course. So I am still searching. I may have to appeal to JWM author.

JWM or ROX ??

It should be a ROX-Filer option .

The default options are compiled into the
/usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/ROX-Filer
binary .

You would need to recompile the ROX-Filer binary with adjustments to the 'C' source code for
cp
options
I guess .

For me, 'rox' never asked ( prompt'ed ) .

Open the rox Options dialog by right-clicking any rox window and selectin 'Options'. Then click the button for 'Action windows'. Then, in the right panel at the bottom you will see 'Default settings' with separate check-boxes for 'force', 'brief' and 'recurse'. Check any or all of them. Then click 'Apply', 'Save' and 'Cancel'

Stemsee, I think Copy Fast will copy individual files or groups of files as well as whole folders, though I've never used it to copy anything but whole folders.

I have no idea what problem you were trying to solve by modifying Rox, but perhaps you know why every way, except rsync, to copy a folder of mp3 files to my mp3 player results in the files being copied in some order other than strictly numerical. In other words, if, in Rox, I drag a folder containing several hundred mp3 files numbered consecutively (001.mp3, 002.mp3 ... 200.mp3, for instance) from a drive to my mp3 player, I can watch and see that the files are not copied in numerical order. This is a problem because all the mp3 players I've used ignore the file names and play the files in the order they were loaded. Rsync is the only program I know that copies the files in numerical order. Is that what recursive means?

@Flash

recursive means copying throughout child directories in the parent directory.

But your info is very useful. That will come in handy one day!

The problem is solved just by following amigos advise. It was right in front of my eyes but I couldn't find it for searching!
