Title: Where can I get a file manager for TinyCore
Post by: zacchi4k on October 25, 2016, 10:46:32 AM
Apparently Xfe isn't there anymore.
Does someone know a way to install a file manager?
EDIT: I know about Midnight Commander, but I would like something more..... graphical.

open your app browser
Apps -> Cloud (Remote) -> Browse
click the "Search" button next to the text area where you type in your key words
select "Tags"
enter "file manager" in the text area and press Enter
you should get a list of file managers such as emelfm, nautilus, pcmanfm, spacefm ..., etc.

You didn't specify TC version, if referring to TC7 x86 then xfe.tcz is present and accounted for:
Code: [Select]
tce-load -wi xfe

In the end I went for nautilus.

I use the x86_64 port since I need to run x64 software on top of a lightweight Linux distro.

Sadly it doesn't work for me, both the gtk3 and gtk2 version.

How do you mean id doesn't work for you please?

If you install and and run spacefm and it fails to load, then most likely the dependencies have changed.   To find the missing dep use the traditional troubleshooting step: enter spacefm from a terminal and note any missing components.

Appears to work fine in Xvesa and Xorg but will try to duplicate

Don't worry, it worked after I installed something and rebooted, although I don't recall installing anything related to drivers...
BTW I'm using a VMware VM.

Some gtk themes are not compatible with tinyX, causing that error.

OK here is the issue..
Spacefm for an unknown reason could not run under Xfbdev (assuming they did at some point) when I tried today.
Xfbdev.tcz provides X for TinyCorePure64-7.2.iso

I'll need to check why neither version of spacefm no longer runs under the default TinyCorePure64.  However, if you load Xorg-7.7 extension then restart X Spacefm does indeed work fine.

For a smoother desktop environment use Xorg.
to accomplish this, run
Code: [Select]
tce-load -wi Xorg-7.7.tcz
tce-load -wi spacefm.tcz
pkill X
startx

After X has been stopped, run the above startx command from the commandline


Alternatively pcmanfm file manager works fine under Xfbdev

Will do a Xfe build on x86_64 soon.

zacchi4k and colleagues,

Spacefm.tcz, for now is the file manager that worked best in the tests I did, because spacefm allows you to easily run other programs to open files (bootlocal.sh and .filetool) to edit and still with access as super user, root or sudo.

Pcmanfm.tcz is apparently more beautiful, but I was unable to open the files (bootlocal.sh and .filetool) to edit using pcmanfm, even if I checked the option View, Show Hidden.

The emelf2.tcz I managed to run other programs, open the files (bootlocal.sh and .filetool.lst) to edit and still with access as super user, root or sudo. click on the "H" to view the hidden files.

Other file managers that I tested and that I couldn't easily use: mc.tcz (the simplest, it looks like MS-DOS), emelf.tcz ..

zacchi4k e colegas,

O spacefm.tcz, por enquanto é o gerenciador de arquivos que melhor funcionou nos testes que eu fiz, porque o spacefm permite executar com facilidade outros programas abrir os arquivos (bootlocal.sh e o .filetool) para editar e ainda com o acesso como super usuário, root ou sudo.

O pcmanfm.tcz aparentemente é mais bonito, mas eu não consegui abrir os arquivos (bootlocal.sh e o .filetool) para editar usando o pcmanfm, mesmo marcando a opção View, Show Hidden.

O emelf2.tcz eu consegui executar outros programas, abrir os arquivos (bootlocal.sh e o .filetool.lst) para editar e ainda com o acesso como super usuário, root ou sudo. clique sobre o "H" para visualizar os arquivos ocultos.

Outros gerenciadores de arquivos que testei e que não consegui usar com facilidade: mc.tcz (o mais simples, parece MS-DOS), emelf.tcz..

Colleagues,

I tested other file managers:

Xfe.tcz, for now is another file manager that worked best in the tests I did, because it allows you to easily run other programs to open the files (bootlocal.sh and .filetool) to edit and still with super user access, root or sudo.

Nautilus.tcz and rox-file.tcz, I was unable to open the files (bootlocal.sh and .filetool) to edit using these file managers, even running as sudo and viewing hidden files.

Fluff.tcz, I managed to run the editor program with this file manager to open the files (bootlocal.sh and .filetool.lst) to edit, to view or have access like sudo, just click on the "show all" options and "use sudo" from the fluff menu. I was unable to run vlc3.tcz or flviewer.tcz with the fluff.

File-roller.tcz, failed to install, I was unable to test it.

Vifm.tcz, a manager that looks like MS-DOS, I was unable to do anything.

The easiest file managers to use and open other programs through the manager with tiny Core Puls 11.0, so far are: emelfm2.tcz, spacefm.tcz and xfe.tcz.

Colegas,

Testei outros gerenciadores de arquivos:

O xfe.tcz, por enquanto é outro gerenciador de arquivos que melhor funcionou nos testes que eu fiz, porque permite executar com facilidade outros programas para abrir os arquivos (bootlocal.sh e o .filetool) para editar e ainda com acesso como superusuário, raiz ou sudo.

O nautilus.tcz e rox-file.tcz, eu não consegui abrir os arquivos (bootlocal.sh e o .filetool) para editar usando estes gerenciadores de arquivo, mesmo rodando como sudo e visualizando arquivos ocultos.

O fluff.tcz, eu consegui executar com este gerenciador de arquivos o programa editor para abrir os arquivos (bootlocal.sh e .filetool.lst) para editar, para visualizar ou ter acesso como o sudo, basta clicar nas opções "show all" e "use sudo" do menu do fluff. Eu não consegui executar o vlc3.tcz ou o flviewer.tcz com o fluff.

O file-roller.tcz, falhou na instalação, eu não consegui testá-lo.

O vifm.tcz,  gerenciador que possui aparência do MS-DOS, este eu não consegui fazer nada.

Os gerenciadores de arquivos mais fáceis de usar e abrir outros programas através do gerenciador com o tiny Core Puls 11.0, até o momento são: emelfm2.tcz,  spacefm.tcz e o xfe.tcz.

With the file managers emelfm2.tcz, or spacefm.tcz, or Xfe.tcz I was able to view the hidden file (.filetool.lst) and open the files (bootlocal.sh and .filetool.lst) to edit and save.

The keyboard configuration in the ABNT2 standard worked successfully on Tiny Core Plus 11.0 32 bits.

I agree with @marcelocripe about pcmanfm: it's common, nice but lacky in options. I'm going to test another too.

I like Fluff very much. It is simple, but has all what I need. On the left side I have the full tree and on the top some buttons to find back home. I can use it with sudo and see hidden files. Editor is working fine.

Simple and good :)

Hello F,

At last check, the tinycore OS  (operating system)  does not offer users any Desktop file manager.

Though that may change.

There are so so many file managers offered inside the Tinycore ( Apps ) library.   The Apps library appears on the desktop

0) Click the desktop APP library "icon
1) List the CLOUD list for apps
2) Scroll down in (1) above and choose maybe "fluff"  File manager ........... which may be there.
3) Click fluff 
4) "Fluff" file manager icon.......... should appear on the desktop

in the future you could repeat those steps above...................since Tinycore Desktop does NOT remember your apps on power-off of the computer..........

For sure, you can do a Backup (select it) on power down of the computer...............after that , on power UP of the computer,........ its not  clear what the future state of your computer will be.

There are  a couple of existing FOLDERS inside Tinycore OS  which need interactions  SO AS TO GET YOUR COMPUTER to REMEMBER it;s APPS on reboot  (re-start)  after powered off ............

...........Unfortunately, it's not explained  on the Desktop you ***see**** how to do those simple steps to make your computer remember it's APPS when powered OFF and back ON.....

Thx
V.

ps.........hope the above helps
