Subject description: download from terminal
 

I would like to download and install a different file manager. Not sure what will work. I am running Puppy XenialPup64 7.5 as an .ISO on a USB thumb drive. My persistence file is set to 1.5G and is on a separate hard drive.
Works really nice. I'd like a file manager with a bit more detail and clarity and one where I can see all my folders and drives. I tried to download and install Konqueror but too many missing dependancies. Maybe Dolphin? What do you suggest?

Dolphin will probably have lots of dependencies similar to Konqueror. You could try pcmanfm or spacefm.

I've been getting along with roxfiler, and don't have any recommendations.
I wonder whether looking into the forum section
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/index.php?f=51
would help? There seem to be posts there about file managers.

Hey, bobruzzo

If you want, try "pcmanfm-1.3.0_x86_64-nodeps.pet", by finding it here:

Hi bobruzzo,

You actually posed three different questions: How do I install a different file-manager? and How do I download using the commandline, and How to I install applications using the command line?

Running Xenialpup64 you actually have easy ways to install a supplemental File-Manager. You can use your web-browser to see what's already available on the Addition Software Section/Filesystem: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/index.php?f=51. Scan the thread descriptions, then read those which may interest you making certain that one you want to install was built for 64-bit operating systems and --occasionally important-- xenialpup64. If it was not built for Xenialpup64 it may still be possible to use it. Backup your SaveFile/Folder before proceeding. Download the pet and install it. Run Menu>Utilities>ListDD list dynamic dependencies and browse to the applications binary which is usually in /usr/bin. If it's not there, run Menu>Filesystem>pfind, type in the name of the application and from the list which appears look for its location within a "bin" folder. Executables are always in a folder named bin or sbin [although sometimes what's located there is a symbolic link to the binary (executable)'s location or a bash script call in it. If a symbolic link, right-click and select "Show Target". If a symbolic link, open the file in a text editor and see where the actual binary is located. Once you've located the binary browse to and select it in LDD and then select Missing from the botton panel. You can then use Puppy Package Manager or your Web-browser to hunt for missing dependencies.

Obviously, using an application already made for your OS is easier. Just download the pet or SFS and respectively left-click it if its a pet or Menu>Setup>SFS-Load if its an SFS.

The other way to obtain an application --as you probably already know-- is to build it using Puppy Package Manager. That's how I built XFE. Typing xfe into the Search box showed three relevant files: xfe_1.41-3, xfe-i18n_1.41-3 and xfe-themes_1.41-3. You can auto-install these, or change the setting of that choice to "download all (packages and dependencies)", download them and left-click the downloaded files, select install.

Xfe is my choice for supplemental File-manager. It' can be run as dual-pane with a Tree-view, highly customizable, theme-able, has lots of builtin tools. Best of all, as far as I know, it is light-weight and doesn't interfere with any other file-manager. Under Xenialpup64 you can set it as your default file-manager: Menu>Setup>Default Applications>File-manager, scroll. But I'm not certain that in every instance it will replace rox-filer as some of a stock puppy's file-management may be hard-coded to Rox. Which is why I've bolded the term supplemental.

If xfe suits your needs, you can install the pet from here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=990740#990740

Your other questions raise an even more fundamental question. Why would you want to use the command line to download and install applications when you don't have to?

But if you have a good reason, you should know that the command line application wget is builtin. Just open a terminal and type “wget –help” --without the quotes-- for instructions. You can also install uget using Puppy Package Manager. See the discussion here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=880647#880647. I've never used either so I'll leave further discussion for others.
About using the command line to install applications, I've never done that either. For a discussion, see here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=52983

How about compiling xfe? It's not difficult and it works best like that:
http://smokey01.com/newsletters/2017/May/0005-PuppyLinuxNewsletter-May2017.html#14
Don't forget to have the devx mounted, needed for compiling.
And take foxtoolkit 1.6, FOX STABLE, not 1.7.
