Xfe can't be build without building an older version of fox too in Arch...
So, the question: is there a file explorer like Xfe that's as good or even better?
hmm. I did the last xfe pkg. you can downgrade to previous FOX or wait for new xfe to come out [that would play ok with latest fox]
other (not so similar) file managers
gentoo, nautilus [which I really like with new spatial mode]
go http://bliss-solutions.org/archlinux/incoming/ and choose File Manager and just click the button
I'm using gnome-commander:
EDIT: it doesn't run anymore. I tried to make a new PKGBUILD for the latest version but it doesn't compile. [maybe because of latest gcc version? not sure..]
Well, it needs to be simple enough for my sister to use...
I'll see if she can get used to gentoo. Can't use nautilus though, it needs gnome and I won't install it. ;x
well it is simple [it uses the NORTON COMMANDER famous style]
anyways.. I can't help you, you can email the xfe developer and ask him when he will release a working-under-the-latest-fox xfe. then I can help you. or you can ask him if there is a patch or something like it in order to work under latest xfe and compile undergcc 3.4
until that time
pacman -Rs xfe
pacman -A /var/cache/pacman/pkg/PREVIOUS_XFE_PKG
THIS will WORK
