segusoLand and Xfe

I'm rather picky about my filemanagers.  When I want full blown capabilities, I boot up konqueror, but I don't like it for minute to minute stuff.  Right now, I am getting by on Rox.  It really isn't a bad file manager, but there is a few things I miss.

Xfe is actually my favorite manager over at http://sourceforge.net/projects/xfe

It's simple, but it does everything I like.

Another one just got mentioned on Osnews.  It looks nifty, and I might try building it myself soon.  Here it is:

http://segusoland.sourceforge.net/

Just a couple suggested requests. smile

Thanks,

Shea Parkes

Re: segusoLand and Xfe

Re: segusoLand and Xfe

I was referring to Segusoland's source code.

Re: segusoLand and Xfe

Thanks,

I have tried gentoo, emelfm and just about everything else out there.  I really just fall back to Xfe generally. MC for the command line when needed of course.

And did anyone else go check out that SegusoLand thing?  It really did look pretty interesting.

And yes, sorry, Xfe does depend on Fox.  Actually, specifically the last stable version of fox.

Thanks alot,

Re: segusoLand and Xfe

pkgname=xfe
pkgver=0.54.2
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="An MS-Explorer like file manager for X based on X Win Commander"
url="http://www.roland65.ovh.org/xfe/xfe.html"
depends=('fox')
source=(http://dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/$pkgname/$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz)
md5sums=('4d50faa3153cd1ff4e9f4237926f44b1')

build() {

Works with the latest stable fox release (1.0.46).

Re: segusoLand and Xfe

Actually, latest version is "0.60".  I haven't tried it, but your script should still work just fine with the updated version.

I just like Xfe because it has what I need and nothing else.
