Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

it's silly but i've got a little problem here , ranger cannot preview image in true colors while in urxvtc but it works great on plain urxvt (non daemonized) does anyone here got the same issue?
also somehow ranger kept refusing to draw borders around column even when i set the correct value ( set draw_borders true)

In regards to the preview image issue...
On my setup, if I take the urxvt*depth:32 line out of my .Xresources (and ultimately disable transparency), then w3mdisplay will display images correctly through ranger. Otherwise I get an error somewhere along the lines of w3mdisplay failing to display the image.
I hope this gets worked on because I have a hard time deciding between transparency and image previews tongue

The image preview feature has recently stopped working. I get the following error: "Failed to execute w3mimagedisplay []" I do have w3m installed and w3mimagedisplay is located at /usr/lib/w3m/w3mimgdisplay. Any ideas?

Have you recently made your urxvt transparent?

i have never use any kind of compositor , thus transparency isn't an issue for me , apparently image preview issue was fixed by compiling ranger from the git repository
but i still can't define any theme nor draw column border in ranger

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

I get errors when I try to rename files / directories to a name that has a forward slash. Is this supposed to happen? Should I somehow escape those slashes?

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

I don't think this is an issue of ranger, forward slashes are the path delimiter, they are not allowed in filenames at all (because you are basically moving the file to the directory named like the string in front of the / without having this directory created and without mv/cp (maybe without mv/cp may even work if there is a directory, never tried)). Try it on shell, if it doesn't work there either (what I expect to happen), it has nothing to do with ranger.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Hm.. I see. I don't know, forward slashes work perfectly fine in Windows explorer. Existing directories with forward slashes in them work fine with all Linux utilities. I collect music, and I need forward slashes because some LPs / singles have them in their name. My storage partition is NTFS. I normally replace special characters, such as a double colon, with a dash. A forward slash is legal on NTFS, though.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Linux prohibits slashes in a name since it is used as directory separator. Use an unicode character if you really need it, otherwise use something like ][, %, }{, ~, ... as a separator

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Actually... I'm an idiot. NTFS doesn't support forward slashes either. As the link above says, almost no filesystem supports it. I guess I'll replace them with a dash.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Hi, I have this issue where the program looks for nano to open text/scripts/conf files. I have uninstalled nano. I cannot figure what config or variable it is still referring to and hence trying to start nano. Both EDITOR and VISUAL variables were blank, i tried setting them to vim  and still no luck. Does anybody have any ideas?

EDIT: Please ignore, found it in the wiki, changed rifle.conf.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

How do I make ranger display image-previews in full resolution instead of ASCII-Art? Unfortunately I don't find any useful information about this except for the fact, that it is *possible*.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

In your rc.conf, set the "set_preview images" to True.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

I occassionally run ranger as root, and for the most part it's great.  I only have one issue and that is that the bookmarks file at .config/ranger/bookmarks changes ownership to root root.  Is there a way to change this behaviour / stop this from happening?

Also, major thanks for this program, it's the only file manager I use aside from core utils.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

I'm using preview_images = True to preview images (who could imagine!?). However, I often have/had black horizontal bars/blocks over the images, so that I merely can guess the pictures' content. It seems there is a solution for the problem by setting draw_borders true, however, in my opinion ranger is more beautiful without borders and on the other hand I don't see how these options are related. Can anyone shed some light into this? (And maybe come up with a solution to fix the preview with draw_borders false, if there is one?)

Thanks in advance!

Drawing images in the console is a "total hack" where the framebuffer is directly written to (methinks). ncurses does the printing for all of the text which is then rendered by the terminal emulator. These two things do not see each-other, so they draw over themselves haphazardly. Unfortunately sometimes when ncurses tries to blank a section of the screen that had text, it overwrites an area that had an image drawn over it.

draw_borders does not fix the main problem for me, but I see how it might help. [WARNING: Guesswork in progress] When you change the end of a line, the terminal may blank all the following part of the line. When you change lines *without* borders, this happens. Then the section of the image on the changed line is blanked.
With draw_borders, the line is not changed at the end (there is a border there). Therefore no such overwriting happens.

Basically, this isn't an easy thing to fix.

Yes. Look at your preview options (such as the preview script) and turn off stuff that's causing the slowdown. You can edit scope.sh for more fidelity (remove the "video/*" from line ~81).

Love ranger, great app!
But how to make the slow copy operation (any copy operation that takes time) not to freeze it? Can I run copies in the background?

Copying tasks are run in a different thread (though, judging from the jerkiness, not in a different process). You can still navigate around ranger after starting a copying job, and you can show the currently running tasks by pressing w.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Maybe that's just the network copy and copy to some SD cards, but ranger won't respond until finished (or respond with a 10sec delay).

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Hi, I have feh installed but ranger keeps opening images in eog. Looking at the default rifle.conf feh appears after eog, which means it should take precedence right? I haven't made any customizations to rc.conf or rifle.conf. How can I get it to open in feh? (I don't want to uninstall eog)

rifle.conf has this:

#-------------------------------------------
# Image Viewing:
#-------------------------------------------
mime ^image, has eog,    X, flag f = eog -- "$@"
mime ^image, has sxiv,   X, flag f = sxiv -- "$@"
mime ^image, has feh,    X, flag f = feh -- "$@"
mime ^image, has mirage, X, flag f = mirage -- "$@"
mime ^image, has gimp,   X, flag f = gimp -- "$@"
ext xcf,                 X, flag f = gimp -- "$@"

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Try putting feh above eog and see what ranger does.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

A few months ago somebody in this thread said that ranger in termite does not yet support true color preview using w3mimgdisplay.
I found that w3mimgdisplay itself works inside of termite, so is there any chance termite true color preview support for termite will be added soon, or is there already a way to make it work?
