Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Check the value of 'preview_script' in the settings dump (default key binding is '?s'). Did you copy scope.sh to your ranger config folder?

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Hello guys, Ranger is just awesome! I've been using it for 3 months already! Thx

I would like to know if we can define the "method 0" to open a file. For example, right now my images are open with  " feh " but I would like to change it to gpicview. I couldn't find any way in the docs.

Thx

Hi bartuka, you'll want to edit "~/.config/ranger/rifle.conf" such that you have a line for gpicview in the "Image Viewing" section similar to the line for feh, making sure that your new line is the first one in the section. The first one ends up being "method 0".

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Miblo, thanks for your help. I added the following line:

mime ^image, has gpicview,  X, flag f = gpicview -- "$@"

Worked perfectly. Now I can do the same for other apps. This community is great smile

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Sorry guys, this may be a really newbie question but I've been searching for a while and I couldn't find an answer. I create a keybind to open ranger in my i3wm:

 bindsym $mod+space exec /home/username/bin/st -e ranger & exit 

As you can see I am using the st terminal from the suckless.org project. I would like to open tmux as well before ranger. I open the st+tmux in a similar way:

 bindsym $mod+space exec st -e tmux

The st terminal for ranger is different because I use one with transparency as default. Can someone help me with this? How to open st + tmux + ranger, I tried to add some connectors like AND or &, but I didn't work.

Thanks guys!

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

What is that "& exit" at the end?  Get rid of that.  If you want to start a command in tmux, just check tmux's man page.  Something like st -e tmux -c ranger should do.

Maybe you were using termite as your terminal. w3imgdisplay crashes with termite, I don't know why.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Trilby, that "& exit" was wrong... I had an alias in .bashrc where I opened ranger when I typed "ranger" in st terminal and killed the terminal from where the command came from. But, your idea works here. However, if I open a file with vim from this ranger instance, I cannot use the mouse scroll.

If I open ranger from my default terminal where tmux is already running, then any file opened in vim is able to use mouse scroll to roll back and forth the file.
Thx

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

Normal users works

But,root
ranger preview disabled default
manual zp and previevs works ,text and image
if restart ranger preview is disabled
double check rc.conf "set preview_files true" is right


if change other settings
"set show_hidden false/true"
"set colorscheme default/solarized"
other settings works

Any idea ?

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

can you run the copy-config all command as root? i dont use ranger as root and not sure if that would be undesirable or cause issues but i would think it would allow you to set some default config for the root user

--edit--

i am not saying do this might be good to ask someone else or have them chime in on if this is a bad idea

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

I'm certain this has been brought up before, but can't really recall....

How does everyone use ranger when comparing directories, since switching back and forth between tabs looks... clumsy at best. Having two instances of ranger open in tmux means we lose things like file copy-pasting. Any better ideas?

EDIT: Also, now that I'm poking around with ranger (been using it for more than a year but haven't bothered much with customization) I realize I'm not getting image previews in termite. Seems like it should work nowadays even though it didn't previously, is that the case? Termite + tmux here. I could use st + tmux instead (tested to work) but then I lose powerline sad

EDIT2: Ah I forgot powerline is font dependent, so st works. Will keep it around to see how I like it, but I'm just so used to termite smile not that, as a tmux user, I actually use any of the features though I guess.

EDIT3: Actually now that I'm playing around with it, image previews appear for a few seconds then disappear in tmux in st. Anyone seen that?

EDIT4: Here's a screenshot, problem is most definitely tmux. st alone doesn't have an issue with disappearing images, but in tmux they disappear after a few seconds, and when used on ranger in a horizontal split I get this (yes, that's a screenshot of a screenshot of ranger):-

You can use load/save_copy_buffer as described in the manual.

Image previews no longer work in termite since real transparency was enabled.

I can't reproduce your issues with tmux, ranger 1.7.1 and xterm. Have you tried with standard configurations?

Looks like that would require me to run it each time I switch. Or probably what you meant was to remap, for example, y-y and related to run save_copy_buffer after the copy, and remap p-p and related to run load_copy_buffer before the paste?

EDIT: Okay I was messing around and got things working on that. Will see how I like running, effectively, 6 columns side by side (thankfully I have a widescreen)! Basically just add load_copy_buffer before every paste and save_copy_buffer before every copy/cut.

map pp chain load_copy_buffer ; paste
map po chain load_copy_buffer ; paste overwrite=True
map pl chain load_copy_buffer ; paste_symlink relative=False
map pL chain load_copy_buffer ; paste_symlink relative=True
map phl chain load_copy_buffer ; paste_hardlink
map pht chain load_copy_buffer ; paste_hardlinked_subtree

map dd chain cut ; save_copy_buffer
map ud chain uncut ; save_copy_buffer
map da chain cut mode=add ; save_copy_buffer
map dr chain cut mode=remove ; save_copy_buffer

map yy chain copy ; save_copy_buffer
map uy chain uncut ; save_copy_buffer
map ya chain copy mode=add ; save_copy_buffer
map yr chain copy mode=remove ; save_copy_buffer

map dgg chain eval fm.cut(dirarg=dict(to=0), narg=quantifier) ; save_copy_buffer
map dG  chain eval fm.cut(dirarg=dict(to=-1), narg=quantifier) ; save_copy_buffer
map dj  chain eval fm.cut(dirarg=dict(down=1), narg=quantifier) ; save_copy_buffer
map dk  chain eval fm.cut(dirarg=dict(up=1), narg=quantifier) ; save_copy_buffer
map ygg chain eval fm.copy(dirarg=dict(to=0), narg=quantifier) ; save_copy_buffer
map yG  chain eval fm.copy(dirarg=dict(to=-1), narg=quantifier) ; save_copy_buffer
map yj  chain eval fm.copy(dirarg=dict(down=1), narg=quantifier) ; save_copy_buffer
map yk  chain eval fm.copy(dirarg=dict(up=1), narg=quantifier) ; save_copy_buffer

This may or may not slow things down a bit. My home directory is on an SSD so I can't tell.

Yeah I figured that, so I'm now using st.

I absolutely can reproduce that in ranger 1.7.1 with default ranger configurations (except setting image_previews=true) in st and tmux. Up-to-date for everything.

When I switch to xterm (same tmux config), image does not disappear, but it crosses the horizontal split in exactly the same way.

Hello, more (maybe already solved?) urxvt and w3m image preview. I've read on the github that the image preview threading may mitigate this issue.

Neither do I, but not a chance I'd take, really. Your first post on these forums, newly registered account, and the URL being ip-address... red flags all round smile

That bug report doesn't show 'fixed' as there still seem some (corner?) cases.

Re: Ranger, a textbased filemanager

After updating today,

 ranger: ImportError: No module named 'ranger'

The error is raised because the package owns files in /usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages/ranger, which is not to be found in /usr/lib/             python3.5/site-packages/ranger.

Git version does not have the issue as it created the needed files in python3.5 (as I understand).

ps Is there a tip to launch ranger (from community) anyway? Like back at the Python2.7 » 3 shift we could launch ranger with `python2 /usr/bin/ranger`

Every version you compile from source should work I think. In the meantime, try to prepend the old location to the python search path.
