how to set up pcmanfm to access sftp server
« on: June 04, 2020, 12:36:25 PM »
Hi: Usually I install gvfs-fuse and gvfs-backends in Debian and the pcmanfm file manager
can then connect to FTP servers. In CorePlus I was searching for these extensions, but could
not find them.

Is there a workaround in Tiny Core?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

gvfs exists in CorePure64 and used to exist in Core.

You could either use an earlier version of Core (4.x) or compile it for Core-11.x.

The CorePure64 build notes are here: http://tinycorelinux.net/11.x/x86_64/tcz/src/gvfs/

HI: Thanx for that. I found the gvfs.tcz in the 4.x repo and downloaded it.
Question:

Do I have to find the dependece list aslo? Or are the dependencies included
within the gvfs.tcz?

BTW: While I was playing with pcmanfm window manager I discovered that there are
so many features which can be added to that file manager.  It should also be
possible to install vsftpd on both sides and then have pcmanfm use this FTP
protocol for GUI file transfers between two client/server installations. vsftpd is not in
the 11.x repo.

Hi beerstein
This is the  gvfs.tcz  dependency list from the 4.x repo:
http://tinycorelinux.net/4.x/x86/tcz/gvfs.tcz.dep
Some of them don't exist in TC11 and some have undergone name changes.

gvfs from core-4.x almost certainly will not work in core-11.x

thank you guys fir this. May be I try to compile it for 11.1. But I never did compile
a package. Is there a chance that somebody else is also interested in
this package for 11.1 ?
