Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Hi and yea I know I was just here the other day, but I wrote a command that opens feh in thumb mode in the commands file as

class th(Command):
    def execute(self):
        self.fm.run(["feh",  "--thumbnails",  "--thumb-width 120",  "--thumb-title none"], flags="d")

This opens feh in a seperate window showing the files in the current directory, is there a way to have it open like it does from rifle conf where it integrates with Ranger and shows the images in the terminal?

thanks

--jerry

PS The work around the preview files in root worked great.

thanks

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

drawing images in the terminal has nothing to do with rifle.conf or with feh, actually. that's a separate feature which uses a part of the w3m web browser. And currently it can only draw 1 image at a time.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Hi hut,

thanks for this great filemanager!
I'm using it exclusively since over a year and I'm happier than I was with any other filemanager before smile

I've noticed that bulkrename doesn't work for me with gvim set as editor.
It opens a temporary file in gvim, but the file is always empty and even if I write filenames in there manually it says after saving and closing gvim: "No renaming to be done!".
This happens to me no matter if I start ranger using "EDITOR=gvim ranger" or setting gvim as the default editor manually in the rifle.conf .

edit: I'm using ranger-git 1.6.0.110.gd763950-1 from AUR

Gotta mark the files first, by typing space, or search for "mark" in the man page.

I know, I've used bulkrename before wink
I should have mentioned more explicitly that it works for me with EDITOR=vim but not with EDITOR=gvim.
This bug / missing feature also occurs to me with the default configuration (I've renamed ~/.config/ranger before starting ranger to test this).

As a quickfix I've simply changed app='editor' to app='vim' in the bulkrename class of commands.py (line 742) and use gvim as the default editor for any other textprocessing. But this is a rather hackish solution wink

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

@d0lphchrist
I see... the problem is that gvim forks to background like a daemon and ranger can't know when it quit. You'd have to use "gvim -f", but currently, passing options to the editor is not supported by ranger (i.e. "EDITOR='gvim -f' ranger" would not work).

So what you have to do is:

echo -e '#!/bin/sh\nexec gvim -f "$@"' | sudo tee /usr/bin/gvim_f
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/gvim_f
EDITOR=gvim_f ranger

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

bulkrename is a life saver especialy within vim %s/foo/bar/g

gvim comes with its own vim

I see. Thanks for the answer.
I think I'll use normal gvim for textprocessing, so I can continue to use ranger while having a textfile opened, and gvim_f for bulkrename.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Hello all,

First of all thanks for this great file manager. I use it since about a year and i like the speed and efficiency. It goes perfectly with Awesome WM.

Anyway since i reinstalled it, all the text files open with Nano instead of VIM, the bulkrename command to, which is pretty anoying, do you know what i could do to change that ?

I looked at the riffle.conf file and found this :

#-------------------------------------------
# Misc
#-------------------------------------------
# Define the "editor" for text files as first action
mime ^text,  label editor = "$EDITOR" -- "$@"
mime ^text,  label pager  = "$PAGER" -- "$@"
!mime ^text, label editor, ext xml|csv|tex|py|pl|rb|sh|php = "$EDITOR" -- "$@"
!mime ^text, label editor, ext xml|csv|tex|py|pl|rb|sh|php = "$PAGER" -- "$@"

Looks like i should change the $EDITOR variable but i'm not sure, and i can't even tell where it is ...

Thanks by advance

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

chignole, $EDITOR is an environment variable.  There are various places it could be set such as ~/.bash_profile or ~/.bashrc - there's also the system-wide settings in /etc/bash_profile.

You can see what the variable is set to at the command line with `echo $EDITOR`.  If you want to test whether this is the issue, you can try `EDITOR=vim ranger`.  If it then works as you'd want, then you just need to set EDITOR globally.

Of course, you could also take $EDITOR out of the ranger conf files and "hardcode" vim in.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

You can install the mighty package atool

http://www.nongnu.org/atool/
https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/any/atool/

In ranger I select the file, push `!' to enter the ranger shell interface and type:

aunpack -e %s

Otherwise you can bind the command in your .config/ranger/rc.conf

cmap ,z aunpack -e %s

press ',z' on the selected file to uncompress any archives types.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

So I've just tried to use :bulkrename on a bunch of video files, and got the following error message:

"No module named 'ranger.fsobject.file'; ranger.fsobject is not a package"

I've never encountered this before, and I've used :bulkrename quite a bit in the past.  Any tips?

EDIT: I'm using the current git pull; probably last updated a week or so ago.  I just installed the version from [community] to give that a shot, and it works fine.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

ANOKNUSA, you have an outdated ~/.config/ranger/commands.py. If you didn't add any custom commands, you can simply delete that file.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

I'd like to announce that there is now a central place for all your ranger questions: the ranger Q&A system!

Please ask your ranger questions there from now on; you can even post anonymously (though registration is advised). The size of this thread is making me dizzy, and many good ideas have been lost already.  I hope it will be easier to keep track of questions and answers in the new system.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

@hut

I have a little question: Might it be possible to find some performance bottlenecks and work at them?

Reason: I am mostly using a netbook and I used ranger a lot on it for two years but for about half a year it works much slower. I use a clean install, but often moving between directories takes some seconds where it used to be almost instant. hmm

Note: I am using vanilla installation and haven't done any configuration. If you were to find the culprits and open issues about them on github, I may be able to take a look at them and decide if I can do something about them myself! Sadly I am not familiar enough with the codebase hence the question.
Does anybody else have experienced a less fluent experience with ranger recently?

It's fine on my side.

You should try running "ranger --clean --profile" and holding down the "}" key. Post the top of the output.

However, you should try the new Q&A system, as this thread is too long. You don't need to sign up, even.
