PostPosted: Tue 28 Aug 2018, 01:37    Post subject:  Puppy specific version of ROX-Filer  

The testing branch of woof-CE is currently using a new fork of ROX-Filer.

Among the changes are:

    - Support for "copy/cut to clipboard" and "paste from clipboard" has been added. This means the old "Copy" menu item has been renamed to "Duplicate" and the key-binding changed from Ctrl+C to Ctrl+D. The key-binding for "Delete" has been changed from Ctrl+X to the "Delete" key.

    - When dragging .desktop files to the pinboard (desktop), the "Name" field of the .desktop file is used as the default label instead of the filename.

    - The "Move" functionality has been changed to allow merging with any existing directories with the same names.

    - "Merge" and "Ignore Older" checkboxes have been added to the "Copy" and "Move" dialogs, defaults can be changed in 'Options...'->'Action windows' if you don't want to tick the box every time.

    - When a directory is missing/deleted the window will be automatically closed immediately, but this can be changed in 'Options...'->'Filer windows' if you don't like it.

    - In list view mode (Show extra details) items can only be dragged by clicking in the icon and name columns. All other columns will start a selection box, which should make selecting files in list view mode easier.

    - It is now configurable in 'Options...'->'Filer windows'->'List View' which columns are visible in list view mode.

    - A "New" button (the blue plus) has been added to the toolbar. Left click creates a new directory, middle click creates a new blank file and right click opens the "New" menu.


The pets of the Puppy specific version of ROX-Filer can be found at ibiblio and it's mirrors in the pet_packages-common32/64 directories,

32bit http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-common32/
64bit http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-common64/

and were made with the petbuild from https://github.com/puppylinux-woof-CE/petbuilds/tree/generic/basic/pkgs/rox-filer

One thing lacking in rox-filer is that it shows the current folder in the window title, and not all window managers include a visible (or full) title (cwm for instance has no window titles, twm can have tabs as titles (relatively short/small) ...etc.).

Would be nice if the current folder path was shown within the rox window area somewhere rather than having to do something like type / to see a goto content of the current folder path.
