Where can I get a file manager for TinyCore
« on: October 25, 2016, 09:46:32 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.

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.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

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.
Download a copy and keep it handy: Core book ;)
