    • SpaceFM’s DM doesn’t currently support arbitrary icon positions.

  2. Thank you
    I hope in the future will be possibile

    I can start with
    @pcmanfm –desktop
    And use spacefm for file manager?

    • Sure you can use spacefm as just a file manager. The DM is fairly simple and lightweight – basically it’s lxde’s old desktop manager from the legacy pcmanfm with a few additions. Might be extended someday.

      • I tryed but folder that atr on desktop is opened by pcmanfm, folders that are on panel or menu by spacefm.

        I wait for arbitrary icon positions implementation nand use spacefm..

        • I’m not sure but pcmanfm may always open folders using itself rather than the default mime app for folders. But you can try setting spacefm as the default app for mime type inode/directory – if you don’t know how to do this consider using a mime editor, or you can use spacefm’s mime menu.

  3. Doesn’t integrate with gigolo very well. Everytime I put the command line for spacefm into gigolo prefs for filemanager I get file does not exist.

    • I’m not familiar with gigolo, but spacefm is generally installed as either /usr/bin/spacefm or /usr/local/bin/spacefm.
