I have been interested in trying some different file managers lately, and I have installed spacefm. It seems fine, but I don't dislike Thunar either. The only thing that I am really missing in Thunar is tabs. I have read most of the spacefm posts on the forum, but they're mostly opinions as to whether they like spacefm or not. What I would like to know is specific

Hm. Yes, SpaceFM is quite alive; it's the file manager I use almost all of the time these days; I only change a few things from the default settings, and don't find much to miss from other file file managers I've used in the past. There's quite a bit in the users manual, if you're interested: http://ignorantguru.github.io/spacefm/s … al-en.html.
No matter what I do I am not getting Chrome to work well with the file manager I am using (I've tried with thunar and spacefm) but nothing works. When I click "open folder" or when I try to open the downloaded file nothing happens. I tried everything I could with xdg-utils.
Thanks, pidsley. I just remembered that SpaceFM is not in the repos. You have to download it and use either dpkg or gdebi to install it. I used gdebi to attempt the install under a Sid distro.How did you generate that pseudo screenshot of terminal activity?
Welcome! I'd say synaptic package manager is the best graphical tool for installing apps on #!. However, Skype is not in the repositories for #! or Debian (the repos that #! uses to get software from), so you have to download the .deb file from the skype website and then double-click it to install it.
Hello corenominal,Would it be possible to have a compiled version of SpaceFM to install and let the community evaluate as part of the Waldolf development cycle? PCManFM is proving very flaky and the lack of tabs in Thunar means is isn't a suitable replacement for me.As an aside, Waldorf is behaving beautifully for me.
