Re: qtFM - Small, fast, light Qt filemanager

It works fine here. No qtFM related problem it seems. What does xdg-mime query ... say? Did you try other programs for mp3 files?

Re: qtFM - Small, fast, light Qt filemanager

How do I use xdg-mime query? I tried "xdg-mime query audio/mpeg" but it says xdg-mime: unknown query type 'audio/mpeg'.

Anyways I can get qtfm to use SMPlayer if I delete the mplayer desktop file. If ever mplayer is reinstalled though, I would have to repeat that. Also it feels too workaround-ish.

Re: qtFM - Small, fast, light Qt filemanager

It sounds like a xdg-open problem, especially how its also trying to use firefox.

xdg-mime query filetype yourfile.mp3
> audio/mpeg

xdg-mime query default audio/mpeg
>mplayer.desktop

xdg-mime default smplayer.desktop audio/mpeg

Re: qtFM - Small, fast, light Qt filemanager

Thanks Wittfella. I created the ~/.local/share/applications/defaults.list.new file and then ran xdg-mime default smplayer.desktop audio/mpeg. Now its works.

Re: qtFM - Small, fast, light Qt filemanager

Hey Wittfella, Im having trouble creating a custom action that runs a command in a terminal that takes action on a file. For example:

terminator -e "sudo chmod 644 %f" or terminator -e "nano %f"

Re: qtFM - Small, fast, light Qt filemanager

I can't test right now, but try it without the quotes.  Also does the sudo command require password, or have you set it up to not require input?

Re: qtFM - Small, fast, light Qt filemanager

I tried without quotes, with quotes, with single quotes and neither works. As for sudo, no I have not set it up, however I expect the terminal to still popup and prompt me.

Also I found out that using xterm -e nano %f does work; urxvt -e nano %f also works. Terminal does not work. Sakura popups and even shows nano but it doesn't open the file.

Re: qtFM - Small, fast, light Qt filemanager

Anyone experienced that qtFM sometimes "eats" the files when cut pasting it? It pastes the files, but they disappear, and they seem like erased.

I can't make copy and paste work at all (qtfm 2.1-1). Either there is no 'Paste into folder' on the right-click menu or inside a folder the file is just not copied. That sounds like the same problem you have.

Only problem I've got though. And isn't Thunar sloooow aftrer qtfm!

Re: qtFM - Small, fast, light Qt filemanager

Dunno if this is a bug, and it's not really important, but here's what I get when renaming the folder: http://i31.tinypic.com/2w50f3l.jpg
NVM the run dialog fading out...
After I go forth and back to that folder, all is standing correct.

I don't have that/any of those two problems. Copy, cut and paste work fine here.

I don't have that/any of those two problems. Copy, cut and paste work fine here.

I _can_ copy and paste, but only if there's whitespace below the list in the right-hand pane on which to right-click. If the directory has more files than will fit in the pane then there is no 'Paste' option in the menu.

Maybe it works for you because you are using Icon view which always gives you whitespace on which to right-click.

In List or Detailed view (and I only ever use Detailed view - not as informative as ls -l but getting there) right-clicking anywhere except off the bottom of the list selects the line you have right-clicked on - probably why Paste doesn't work. And why there should be a 'Paste into folder' option if you right-click on a folder (which option is missing ATM).

Re: qtFM - Small, fast, light Qt filemanager

Ah ok, now I get it. I also use detail view and had the same problem, until I realized that there is (Menu bar:) Edit -> Paste, which pastes a file into the currently shown folder.

But since you also use detail view: are you still able to sort by something else than what you currenty sort by? Doesn't work here anymore (does again for a short time, if I remove my settings folder)...

Re: qtFM - Small, fast, light Qt filemanager

I cannot rename files on my external NTFS drive. It works on the ext4 partition though.

Also I do not think its a permission issue since I can move and delete files from the NTFS partition.

Re: qtFM - Small, fast, light Qt filemanager

Updated again

Changelog wrote:

2.2    2-August-2010
- added dynamic updating of autobookmarks for removable drives in /media.
- added 'YesToAll' button when deleting multiple folders.
- added tooltips for truncated items.
- modified tree to always scroll to starting folder.
- modified bookmark activation, no longer triggered by context menu.
- modified context menus.
- fixed bugs with copy/paste, particluarly in Detail view.

I made it so it monitors the /media directory for changes, so it should dynamically add/remove drives.  Is that where people have their automounting/udev stuff happening?  I don't use it so I don't really know.

I'm not sure about the ntfs renaming thing, I mount my xp partition and can rename files/folders as normal.  Do you mean 'external' literally, like a thumbdrive formatted ntfs?  I haven't tried that.

Same here. One external hdd, two NTFS partitions, connected through USB.

Wittfella, your changelog looks astonishing. After I thought I had it installed, I found one bug after another, but then I realized, that there still is Version 2.1-1 in the AUR smile Looking forward to the new stuff =P

Watching the /media directory for changes is a good thing. But /mnt will be mounted a lot too I guess. Not automatically maybe, but if you have qtfm open, at the same time manually mount something and after that want to access the files per qtfm...

Re: qtFM - Small, fast, light Qt filemanager

Oops, sry - couldn't wait for it smile

- added dynamic updating of autobookmarks for removable drives in /media.
> Works good, but: if I unmount manually, it still shows the partition. Only restarting qtfm then makes it show everything correct again (hides unmounted partitions). Why not make it watch mtab instead of a folder. Isn't there every partition mount of the system?
EDIT: udev automatially removes the folder and the bookmark entry disappears. If I unmount the partition manually, its bookmark entry only disappears AFTER removing its folder manually. mtab ftw?

- added 'YesToAll' button when deleting multiple folders.
> nice

- added tooltips for truncated items.
> seems like the tooltip doesn't depend on truncation but on the length of the file name. longer named files always show tooltips, shorter ones never do, even being truncated... would it be possible to show the tooltip right above the truncated filename? Normally you don't want to read the whole filename anymore but only the part which was truncated. And you search for that part where the three dots are^^ And maybe show it without delay? Who wants to move the mouse over a file and then wait for it to show up?

- modified tree to always scroll to starting folder.
- modified bookmark activation, no longer triggered by context menu.
> works fine now, thx!

I can confirm this.

BTW would it be possible to order the autobookmarks or disable them? I don't want them at the top.

Edit: another thing, because theres no padding around thumbnails, all the filename may not be aligned:

screenshot-1280761730.png

Edit 2: When you go to a bookmark, you won't be able to click it again unless you click on a different bookmark first.

Maybe a third section? Bookmarks, Tree, (external)Devices/Mountpoints/whatever? The third section could be shown only when there actually are such devices and maybe be minimized to only a small line when there is no external device.
