Techno this is great work just what I wanted!!

Is it just cuz I'm stuck on a 800x600 laptop or is there no [X] button for closing or a [_] button to minimize? No big deal but I guess I'm spoiled lol

Hold your "Alt" key down, left click on your mouse and drag it down, for some reason when it opens, it opens too high, and you have to drag it down.

Also Techno you forgot to remove the "running as root" splash Smile

Ttuuxxx,

Now that looks good. Kinda looks like the save file dialogue in puppy or are those part of the programs you use like abiword etc. Thundar is definitely going in my toolbox.

Thanks

yeah, i had to do a lot of hacks (commented out bad ifdefs) on the FOXlib code just to get it to compile statically, so not sure went wrong there - either missed one or got carried away, but apparently FOX doesn't get tested statically that much. If I were trying to intentionally eliminate the top bar I would probably have found it near impossible.

Is XFE available for Lucid Puppy ?
I searched using the Lucid Program installer, but could not see XFE anywhere.

I use this Fox-library + Xfe combination in ALL Pupplets I've tried...
The pair never fail to work.

I don't know if it works but XFE is available in the ubuntu repository in Puppy Package Manager - the ubuntu repositories are not enabled by default:
Go to Menu>Setup>Setup puppy>Puppy package Manager
In Puppy Package Manager go to 'Configure Package Manage' the put a tick next to -
Ubuntu - lucid -main
Ubuntu - lucid -multiverse
Ubuntu - lucid -universe
exit the package manager then open it again you should now have the ubutnu repositories to search.

Thanks for response.
Should come in handy for other programs.
I have just heard back from the XFE author and he tells me that it does not do some of the Windows Explorer navigation that I believe is necessary (for me).
So I will give up on XFE.
Thanks for responding

This is what I like to do in Windows Explorer (or XYPlorerFree) -
Navigate the Folders in the left panel.
When I select a folder in the left panel, it's child folders show in the Right Panel
And of course, any files present are shown in the right panel
Ability to expand a Folder in the Left Panel to show that Folder's child Folders, in the left Panel.

If someone put a gun to my head, and said what is the bare minimum that I could live with, I would say -
See the files in the right panel, for any Folder selected in the left panel.
And be able to see the child folders as well. And I could live with only seeing them expanded in the left panel, OR showing in the right panel.

Thanks,
Rob

PS If anyone can suggest any program that does that in Lucid Puppy 5.1.1 I would appreciate it.

Perhaps I'm failing to fully comprehend what you are saying, but...

1. "Navigate the Folders in the left panel"
Xfe has a left panel [1] that gives a display of the hierarchical folder system.
This can be expanded and navigated to go anywhere in the folder system.

2. "When I select a folder in the left panel, it's child folders show in the Right Panel "
Xfe does this too.
e.g.
(a) You can click the appropriate icon at the top of the window to display 2 panels at right [panels 2 &3]...
[Or a single panel only if you prefer; it's easy to switch back and forth from single to twin panels]
You can then click the address bar at top so as to give that panel [panel 2?] the focus, and then when you click on a folder in panel 1, the [folder & file] content of that folder is displayed in the panel [2] that has the focus.
Then you can change focus to the alternate panel [3], and in panel 1, navigate to [and click upon] yet another folder, so that displays in the alternate panel [3].

(b) Then the really neat thing is...
Having displayed the contents of your chosen folders in panels 2 & 3, you can "Move to..." or "Copy to..." from either panel 2 to 3, or panel 3 to 2.
Try it...it's really good.
I copy the contents of whole partitions in this manner...
Probably to a folder on a partition on an external USB HDD...
Probably as a means of making a backup copy of the [Windows or Puppy?] partition contents.

3. "And of course, any files present are shown in the right panel"
Xfe does this, as explained in 2a above.

4. "Ability to expand a Folder in the Left Panel to show that Folder's child Folders, in the left Panel"
Xfe does this, as explained in 2a above.
