A simple but powerful file manager for the UNIX console.
lfm is a simple but powerful file manager for the UNIX console. The application has been developed with the ol' good Midnight Commander as model.
What's New in This Release:В· Ctrl-H now shows or hides dot files. Ctrl-Y displays directories' history.
В· It's now posible to move the cursor in the non-active pane, and this behavior can be toggled with Ctrl-W. Support was added for .7z compressed files.
В· The F2 and F12 keys were swapped, so now F2 renames files and F12 shows the file menu.
В· New key shortcuts were added in dialogs.
В· Cursor movement was sped up.
В· Lots of code cleaning and refactoring were done and some bugs were fixed.
System Requirements:lfm is written in Python_ and need curses module. It needs Python v2.0 or maybe higher, it won't work with v1.5. Since version 0.90, *lfm* needs ncurses >= v5.x because of its
handling of terminal resizing.
All modern UNIX flavours (Linux, *BSD, Solaris, etc) will run it without problems.
lfm is very easy to install, just keep next steps:
1. Download sources
2. Uncompress file
python setup.py build
4. Install, as root::
python setup.py install
5. Run it:
To let 'lfm' to change to panel's current directory after quiting with q, Q or F10 keys, you must add next code to /etc/bashrc or to your ~/.bashrc:
/usr/bin/lfm "$*" # type here full path to lfm script
cd "`cat $LFMPATHFILE`"
rm -f $LFMPATHFILE
If you don't use bash or csh shell, above lines must be different.
