    Re: HOWTO: Replace Nautilus with PCMan (4 Steps, No Fuss).

    As far as I am concerned, I don´t need to replace Nautilus.

    What I am doing is creating an alternative environment, with PCMan, IceWM(true curve theme), icewm-gnome-support, xchat, xterm, totem and kazehakase/skipstone.

    I intend to use this ¨lighter¨ environment for CPU intensive activities.

    so is PCMan really that great ? I intend to install either kaze or skippy as browser. Which shall I take ?

    Re: HOWTO: Replace Nautilus with PCMan (4 Steps, No Fuss).

    How do I uninstall PCMan? Reset the shortcuts, but PCMan still opens locations from the "Places" menu. I want PCMan to be available, but not a default app. Can't figure out how to do this, so I want to uninstall it. Was a tarball install of 0.4.1.1, so I can't uninstall through Synaptic. And, I'm afraid that if I do uninstall it, my "Places" menu items won't work (since they are defaulted to it).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Art

    You're right about that part...I tried uninstalling PCMan from the terminal, and it broke all my places links. I even restored all the backups that we had made. So right now i use PCMan to open my places, but nautilus is still default for everything else. This works pretty well since PCMan is really fast, but I have Nautilus rendering the desktop and for conky.

    I get this error when trying to ./configure pcmanfm-0.4.3. Can someone walk me through on how to set the variables.

    Code:
    checking for GTK... configure: error: Package requirements (gtk+-2.0 >= 2.6.0              
    gthread-2.0) were not met:
    
    No package 'gtk+-2.0' found
    No package 'gthread-2.0' found
    
    Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
    installed software in a non-standard prefix.
    
    Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GTK_CFLAGS
    and GTK_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
    See the pkg-config man page for more details.

    Re: HOWTO: Replace Nautilus with PCMan (4 Steps, No Fuss).

    Hi all,
    I tried doing the same on Intrepid and while it works, there are some issues . I know Intrepid is in development so things may get broken and I'm not looking for a fix. Although it would be nice to also have a way to go back to nautilus described in the 1st or 2nd post itself as well. Specifically with the linking which was done there.

    The issue I'm facing atm is the wallpaper doesn't stand on its own . Also pcmanfm doesn't have a pcmanfm --version thing.

    Here's another thing which shows up when I run pcmanfm on the CLI.

    Code:

    This I guess is to be expected.

    Re: HOWTO: Replace Nautilus with PCMan (4 Steps, No Fuss).

    Since following this guide I now have a hella annoying Icon on my Desktop called "My Documents" that links to my home directory.
    I want it gone but I can't get rid of it.
    Anybody know how to get rid of it?

    I think it will eventually happen, but right now is not a complete nautilus replacement, some functions are not implemented but are on their way.
    I've followed the development of this app and its going great, really moving forward.

    Re: HOWTO: Replace Nautilus with PCMan (4 Steps, No Fuss).

    Hello

    I've tried this and really like using PCMan as my main file manager, but would prefer to keep nautilus managing my desktop.

    So, my question is this: Is it possible to have PCMan open folders from 'Places', open when i browse a drive/folder etc (i.e. act as the default file manager), but not override nautilus as desktop manager?

    Thanks!
