Default File manager for 64 Studio 3.3 onwards

Currently 64 studio 3.3 alpha comes sans file manager. pc-man is not
the greatest (yet) and I had lots of issues - not behaving the way it
should.

After looking for a way to browse samba shares on a LAN, I found gigolo,
and so far I am impressed.

Could we include it in the next alpha?

Hi Quentin

could you explain some of the issues you have got when using PCManFM?
I'll try to test it [1]. I didn't notice anything bad when using it. I'm
missing the old faithful Konqueror, but compared to Nautilus and other
file browsers PCManFM _seems_ to be a good choice here.

Cheers!

Ralf

Ok, ignore ;-)

gigolo actually opens Nautilus, which I installed some time back out of
frustration. No wonder I like it.

Oh well...

Here PCManFM is nearly equal to Nautilus, but OTOH I don't need to
handle shared folders and files.
Btw. I never used Nautilus for 3.3 alpha, but I do remember that
Nautilus used when running a session on Fluxbox, tends to switch from
Fluxbox to GNOME during the Fluxbox session.

I don't know Gigolo, but perhaps you could check if Nautlius-Gigolo
unwanted switches from LXDE to GNOME. I'll test using Nautilus on LXDE
tomorrow.


I've bad experiences when using Nautlius on another DE, but GNOME.

Just 2 Cents,

Ralf

PS:

Linux guys might like to have the choice between different windows
managers and desktop environments AND this could cause a lot of trouble
... much more than the nautilus-issue I indicated. When I reported
trouble regarding to a set up using e17 and GNOME, the people from the
e17 mailing list told me, that it's not expected that anybody using e17
ever will use another WM/DE too.

Hi Quentin,

One of the reasons that I didn't put a file manager or a full desktop
into the 3.3 alphas is that I wanted to make sure we were heading down
the right path. After using LXDE for a while, and comparing it to my
other machines running 64 Studio 2.1 and 3.0beta3, I can see that GNOME
has genuinely useful features, which perhaps I'd begun to take for granted.

I already feel better about GNOME since we switched back to Debian-style
root logins, instead of Ubuntu-style sudo by default. Giving users the
power to screw up their system with a few mouse clicks makes GNU/Linux
too much like Windows for my taste :-)

Cheers!

Daniel

What features are you missing for LXDE? I can't notice any disadvantage
for the DE, but I'm using it with some GNOME apps, e.g. gnome-terminal
and gedit.
