Hello. I'm using Ubuntu 13.10 (saucy). I'd like to install emelfm. It's an old file manager that I quite like (and I don't care for emelfm2). I was able to install it on Vector 7, but I can't figure out how to get it going on Ubuntu.
Here is emelfm's homepage. There's some discussion here in the LQ wiki on it.
Talking about the Task Bar (Window List) on the lxpanel. It appears that the icons do not match what is shown in the Application Launch Bar (still in the lxpanel). Currently I'm using a specific icon set of Faenza, but this happens with all icon sets.
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.
I tend to only do updates about once a month. So I just finished one today and of course it included new kernel, headers and well quite a few other packages requiring upgrades (I never pay too much attention).
I did a search on the Wiki for something already written on this topic, and nothing came up so I made a Wiki page on how to do it. I'm still kind of a noob at the Wiki editor, so I'm not sure how to include screenshots quite yet, so if anybody else wants to improve on this by adding a few screenshots, feel free.
