Test Puppy precise 5.6.1

link 1 PCmanfm https://copy.com/EQtGHlP2Mt3w

link 2 PCmanfm https://www.wuala.com/josejp2424/puppy-es/programas/sistema/PCManFM-1.1.0-rox.pet

How to set PCManFM as system default

Once installed, to set PCManFM as system default you have to type in console .

Code:
rm -f /usr/local/bin/rox && ln -s /usr/bin/pcmanfm /usr/local/bin/rox


and then open the file .xinitrc

Type in console:
Code:
geany /root/.xinitrc   


And change rox -p to rox-real -p

For example:

Code:
if [ -f /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPan1 ];then
     rox-real -p /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin -r /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPan1
    else
     rox-real -p /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin
    fi
   




Save changes. Now, when you do this the wallpaper changer won't work. So again in console:

Code:
geany /usr/local/apps/Wallpaper/set_bg



Look at lines 13 and 31, they're like this:

Code:
rox -p


They should be like this:

Code:
rox-real -p



Save again.

Also modify:

Code:
geany /usr/sbin/set_bg


Save and restart X.



For the PCManFM drive mounter to work, you have to install pup-volume-monitor, available here:

Shouldn`t this be in the "How To" section.?

Strange that Puppy has no menu item to change the default Filer.

Guessing that anyone who might be looking for instructions for using this file handler in Puppy would look in this section of the forum, I'll leave it here. If there's already a thread for PCManFM, this would probably be better off there.
