Probably. As hut said, the whole thing's a hack. What's wrong and what have you tried. Have you tried the "--debug" flag, and what happens then?

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

it works with urxvt from community

Edit: you need to edit the config's default in rangers configs.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Try commenting out URxvt.depth: 32 in your .Xresources file.

EDIT: Nevermind, that would also disable your transparency.

So it only works if you have URxvt.depth disabled.  That is a shame.  Tested and working with that line commented out.
Is there a way to load up an instance of urxvt that disables depth purely for ranger.

EDIT:
So I noticed if I did this.

urxvt -depth 16

Ranger works with previews.  It comes up with a warning message though but it doesn't really matter.

urxvt: no visual found for requested depth 16, using default visual.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

I have never had an issue with urxvt and ranger with inbeded images(w3m) do you get some kind of error?

also do you have it enabled in  your ranger config.

I do have it enabled.  When urxvt depth is set to 32 in .Xdefaults it brings up the error message.

failed to execute w3mimgdisplay

But if I disable the urxvt depth the image shows up.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Is there any way to hide specific segments of the interface? In particular, I've been wanting to hide the user@host thing for a long time, not just setting the fg and bg to be the same color.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

@nil, you can comment out lines:

bar.add(self.fm.username, 'hostname', clr, fixed=True)
bar.add('@', 'hostname', clr, fixed=True)
bar.add(self.fm.hostname, 'hostname', clr, fixed=True)
bar.add(':', 'hostname', clr, fixed=True)

in ~/.ranger/ranger/gui/widgets/titlebar.py

Awesome, thanks! Looks like I know where to where to change the other segments too. For the record, the file path for me was /usr/lib/python3.3/site-packages/ranger/gui/widgets/titlebar.py

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Is it possible to close ranger at some directory and have ranger automatically start up at the directory it quits in? I don't think there's a default option for this, but perhaps some workaround? I was thinking of remapping 'q' to do something like, bookmark current directory, and then quit. Then I would alias ranger so that it would open that bookmark, although as far as I know, ranger only takes explicit file paths.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

@nil, ranger stores the last opened directory to bookmark "'" (single quote). So, you can press '' (quote key twice) after ranger restart. Maybe there is the way to run this thing automatically at sturtup, I'm not sure.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Hi guys,

I am currently diving into ranger.

Question: How can I create a zip archive by selecting multiple files/folders in ranger?

Hi, @orschiro, you can use the compress command.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Hi Hut, I am now using Stable 1.6.1, I used to use the "extracthere" command from the Arch Wiki, now when I try to use it it's gives an error,

Global Name "CommandLoader" is not defined.

Any idea what this is? Has something changed in this version?

Thanks for any help

I assume you missed the

from ranger.core.loader import CommandLoader

part.

As an aside, if you have atool you should just be able to do "r1", though, no?

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Huh?, Thanks for that It had been so ling since I got that command out of the wiki, that I didn't remember adding that reference. I just moved code from version to version. I added it and everything is fine.

thanks very much for your help.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Hi!
Have any of you met problems with sorting? It seems to happen with unicode characters.
The sorting happens like this:
abc...xyz...Áö etc. So the 'normal' English alphabet comes first with unique characters to my language (Hungarian) afterwards which should not be the case.
It should be like: aábc....mnoóöőp...z
I have installed python-chardet as suggested on the homepage of ranger, however it did not help.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

I have unicode problems too, but not with the "scout" command. E.g. I have a filename with an uppercased versions of the character "Д" in it. When I run scout with lowercase version of the char:

scout -rtsfi д

it has no effect on the mentioned filename, but the ignore case is enabled (-i) though. If I hit the uppercase character to scout- it works fine.

The statusbar is at the bottom by default. You probably mean the title bar. See here: http://ranger.carina.uberspace.de/qa/24 … -title-bar

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

How to use wine program in rifle.conf?

I have Microsoft Office installed in wine, and there is simple scripts ~/bin/word:

#!/bin/bash
env WINEPREFIX="/home/havoc/win32" wine C:\\Program\ Files\\Microsoft\ Office\\Office12\\WINWORD.EXE $@

In ranger, i can correctly open docx file using command

:shell word %f 

Then i add settings in rifle.conf:

ext docx?,   X, flag f = word "$@" 

But in ranger, when open a docx file, there is just an empty Word. The file name is not passed to Word.

What's the correct way? thanks
