GFile

dimanche 7 octobre 2007, par Daniel Lacroix

current version : 0.0.9

1 What is it ?

GFile is a file manager for Linux. It is based on Gtk/Gnome. It is in developpement. If I have started this project, it is because I haven't found file manager under Linux with a "tree" like explorer under Windows 95. I found this usefull to visually know where you are. The project started in august 1998.

Done
file format identification.
the tree and the file list connected.
file properties (unstable).
copy, cut and paste of files (unstable).
translation started.
configure script available.
To do
drag and drop.
Many more stuff.

   Version 0.0.9 is out now. It was so long that I have done a version. I still have very few time for GFile right now. So I have decide to put my last changes here so that if you want to work on it or take part of it or learn with it you could do it. This version is instable and not complete. I try to put a configure script so now you will compile by doing ./configure, make and make install. If you want my own configuration (icons...) for a user, log on his login and type ./user_install. In this version you will find the begin of the french translation. The worst thing I hate is that when moving files, GFile replace old files without prompting when they already exists with the same name. So be aware of GFile. gfile-0.0.9.tar.gz 327 025 octets.
