[SOLVED] how to lock scroll looping in nnn file manager

I use nnn terminal file manager to access my files quickly in Gnome. I am very happy with it. It is very fast and well functioning.

But only one thing I just want is that to disable looping scroll.

For instance, there are a lot of files I downloaded in my ~/Downloads folder. I use to scroll with two fingers (it's very smooth, good) to look around files so that I can delete it or not and so on.
Two fingers scrolling is very good and smooth but looping the scrolling (end to the start and start to the end) makes me lose sight of searching.

So, thanks in advance, is there any way to disable  looping the scroll function of nnn.

Hi,

Author of file manager `nnn` here. If you have questions on a specific utility and the issue doesn't look related to Arch Linux, please consider raising a defect in the tool's project's page.

To answer your question, rollover locking is not configurable so far. I'll throw in a config to do that. Expect this in the next release. Thanks!

This is now available in master. You can use option -R to disable rollover at the edges. I too use `nnn` on my mobile and this is indeed useful. smile

Sorry for sounding a little indefinite earlier. I am hopeful of making a release early this week. The feature and fixes are almost frozen: https://github.com/jarun/nnn/issues/386

The team is ensuring the last minute design changes in selection are working as expected.

Hope you enjoy `nnn` as much as we do writing it!

Thank you all, the option -R is really what I want. It works like charm.

I haven't check this page for 4-5 days because I was a little busy.
Today, when I check this page, how it is enjoyable. Thank you all.
