With older eyes - larger fonts/dpi (see attached)

And if I try to maximise, it just jumps to another screen location

Otherwise nice.

I'll look into the problem. Which distro do you use?

Can you give us an example of what you mean? Copy Fast works perfectly to copy folders that contain hundreds of mp3 files. It uses rsync, the only file handling program I know of that copies the files in strict numerical order (or I suppose alpha-numerical, though my files are never ordered that way).

if you select more than one file in a given directory, or more than one folder, you no longer are given this program as an option on the right click menu.

it does copy a file or a folder no problem. the more i use it, the more convenient it becomes, especially as the locations list gets populated. it's a great program, but i often wish to copy only select items in a given directory, not the whole thing. and there are times when i want to copy more than one directory to another location....

does this feature exist and i just can't figure out how to access it? assuming the folder's not empty, copying a folder is copying many files, true, but i don't normally think of copying a document as copying multiple words or lines of text. sorry for being vague.

Confused

(and regardless, thanks for this one as well, don570.)

SFR has already written a program (Multicopypaste) that
copies multiple files in Rox filer. It's probably too complex for me
to put inside copy fast.

Hey guys

I completely forgot about this app (TBH, I'm not using it anymore - drag'n'drop turned out to be faster for me, in the end Wink ).


i gave it a try, perhaps not enough of one, long enough ago that i don't remember much about it other than i came to the same conclusion as SFR himself regarding it. doesn't mean it's not worth another look, though.

I see the lack of support for multiple file/folder copies as a big limitation for CopyFast. Looking at your code I assume that the limitation to 1 file/folder support was a deliberate choice and that there were reasons for it.

I have no intention to discuss the pros and cons of CopyFast here since I can't use it (installation doesn't work for me) and certainly would have no use for it even if the installation would succeed, but for a fast and easy multicopy solution, whould this be an alternative? With a few additional tweaks one could create a "Copy Fast" subdirectory in the Shift+Rightclick menu (="Open With ..."), containing a list of destination folders. The beauty of this solution would be that almost no code is needed. Wink

I use SFR's Multicopypaste but there is a limitation too. Files can not be copied to the root of a partition, has to be to a folder (in other words you can't copy to sda1 for example needs to be sda1/downloads or whatever). If that can be sorted, it will work perfectly. I find this application very useful.

/mnt/sda1 is a folder and you can copy to it. If you need to copy to the very bottom of your filesystem ("/") and you need this often (really hard to believe!), you could create a symlink to it and then copy to the symlink:
Code:
ln -s / /HERE

You can't change this limitation of SFR's application without changing the whole application.

Pardon my stupid question, but why not just highlight the files you want to copy, then drag them to the folder where you want them? This works well in ROX, except the transfer is not always done in the alphanumerical order of the file names, which causes problems with mp3 players, but nowhere else that I'm aware of.

The visual drag-and-drop method has the advantage of reducing the likelihood of mistakes caused by fat fingered typing, at least for me.

Actually a good question, which keeps me wondering why you use a tool like CopyFast? Or is your copy order problem the only reason to use it? I've seen you mentioning this problems a couple of times, but I was never able to reproduce it. I use a mp3 player myself which insists on playing tracks in the copy order, not alphabetical order (the company regarded this as a bug and offered a patch, which I will never ever install since the copy order makes so much more sense), but I had never problems to copy in the order I choose. Maybe you can revive your still unsolved ancient post and give a reproducable example.

Typing? Where do you see typing involved in any of the other methods?

Really, I thought it was a partition like sda5? Anyhow, you can't copy to the root directory of /mnt/home (frugal install with save file) or /initrd/mnt/dev_ro2 or sda5 or the root directory of any other partition for that matter with SFS's application. And yes, I do actually copy to the root directory of a partition often (not hard to believe at all).

I didn't say root directory of a partiton, I said root directory of the whole filesystem ("/").

Well, I mean the root of a partition, you can't with SFR's application. / (top filesystem), /root or root of any partition = can't copy to with SFR's application. You seem to selectively quote parts without comprehending the full paragraph (that's dangerous and could lead to all sorts of wrong answers) Why do you reckon sda1 or sda5 are folders and not partitions? Strange
