PCManFM-Mod Update

PCManFM-Mod 1.2.0 is available. This update includes the following changes and additions:

  • The Copy/Move progress dialog now displays file count, size, transfer speeds, and time remaining
  • Nautilus-style .hidden files are now supported. Any filenames listed in a text file named “.hidden” will not be displayed. List one file per line (file name only, excluding path). Each folder may have a “.hidden” file which determines display of files in that folder. The total hidden count is shown in the status bar. The View|Show Hidden Files setting has no effect on this method.
  • The View|Refresh function has been improved yet again to really re-read the directory
  • The status bar text has been streamlined
  • A bug in the original 0.5.2 which caused some Find Files results to not be displayed has been corrected
  • A bug in the original 0.5.2 which caused the Find Files ‘Search in Sub Directories’ checkbox to be ignored has been corrected
  • A bug in the original 0.5.2 which sometimes produced an erroneous “Invalid cross-device link” error has been corrected

  1. Thankyou very much for your implementation of details on file transfers.

    Do you have a PayPal account I can donate to?

  2. Hi. :) How about excluding HAL and rewriting PCMANFM-MOD without it? :/

    Comment by Varakh | January 20, 2011

    • You should be able to build pcmanfm-mod without HAL support by including “––disable-hal” on the configure command line. As for rewriting pcmanfm-mod to use another daemon for mounting, that is something I’m considering among other options for the longer term, but there are no immediate plans.
