    Yeah, PCManFM feels nearly perfect in so many ways. If I can find a way around a few dependencies and some minor annoyances, it will most definitely be my favorite lightweight file manager. Glad you've found your way around the issues you were having with it.

    Just installed PCManFM 0.9.8 and it's working great here!

    While it has some new dependencies, it no longer requires hal, fam, and some other things it needed before, so that's a big plus. I'm switching to it as my default file manager for use with IceWM and similar window managers.

    While on the subject of window managers, I installed FVWM (my old standby) again earlier today and it felt sluggish compared to IceWM.

    I like the fact that it installs fine in fluxbox also alongside rox file manager also. ozar.

    I've always defaulted to rox in the past, but it does have some annoyances. If pcmanfm keeps working properly, and doesn't start pulling in lots of other dependencies, I'm going to like it very much. Hopefully, gvfs will not become a dependency and will remain optional.


    Edit: oops... spoke too soon and the new PCManFM is not working properly. It errors out whenever trying to copy/paste files, although it will allow drag and drop.

    Back to rox it is...

    I'm embarrassed to say I just discovered something about IceWM yesterday that I've overlooked... the ease by which you can start programs after WM is up. In case anyone else didn't know, simply create a file in ~/.icewm called "startup" and make it executable. Then, enter commands for the programs you want to automatically open after IceWM is up. Of course, I never really had a need for the startup script until now but it will make life much easier for the operators of an eee 701 encoder machine we use in broadcasting.

    Ah, it turns out that it was an upstream bug with pcmanfm 0.9.8 itself:

    SourceForge.net: PCMan File Manager: Detail: 3089625 - Filenames with spaces not supported in copy/paste

    SourceForge.net: PCMan File Manager: Detail: 3088859 - Pcmanfm fail for copy/paste with non-latin path

    Hoping to try the fixed release soon.

    Welcome to the forums, and thanks for the suggestions, olive!

    You have some in your listing that I've not tried before but I'll certainly check them out.

    This go round I'm trying to stay as close as I can to command line apps. For sound I'm using mpg123, sox and moc which open nicely with pcmanfm.
