Xfe scm Bug Feedback
« on: March 12, 2012, 01:29:01 AM »
It seemed appropriate to open a new topic as this feedback is indirectly related to the previous bug report
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,12720.msg69621.html#msg696

xferc
On first running xfe on a virgin system an error message is received:
Code: [Select]
No global xferc file found!  Please select a configuration filePointing to /apps/xfe/share/xfe/xferc allows the automatic creation of ~/.config/xfe/xferc.  On reboot this seems to be sufficient to prevent the error message.


Opening Files via Xfe
In the tcz version of xfe, when xfw or xfi is also installed, it is possible to open a selected file via the xfe interface.  This is not so in the scm version.

Example (scm)
In the xfe interface select an existing text file
Right Click-->Edit
Result:
Xfw opens a new blank file rather than the selected file.

The issue also exists for xfi and xfv.

I fixed the wrappers for xfi, xfw, etc.  Should work now when opening files.

I see that config file screen when first starting xfe, but if I just cancel it, it creates a ~/.config/xfe/xferc file anyway.  So it seems just cosmetic.

Seem OK, they operate as expected.

As this error is not generated when installing the tcz version, might it be worth adding a note to the info file?

ScmApps-->Local-->Install-->xfe
Creates JWM menu entries Xfe, Xfi, Xfp, Xfv, Xfw


ScmApps-->Local-->Uninstall-->xfe
Removes entry from JWM menu Xfe
Leaves entries in JWM menu Xfi, Xfp, Xfv, Xfw

Ok, I am not on TC right now, but looks like the existence of multiple .desktop files is the culprit.  Upstream apps often create these, but with the scm remove function appname.desktop and appname~(1-9).desktop is supported.  I will remove the surplus .desktop files tonight.
