Bulldog finder 3.1

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

Bulldog finder 3.1

Post#1 by don570 » 13 Jul 2013, 20:42

I wanted to find files better in the XFCE edition of Porteus
so I developed Bulldog finder. It can act as an application
or launch from a right click.

The instruction are inside the archive.
...but simply stated you just install the xzm package then
you should run the post install script. You will need to run
the script twice if you want both the guest and root user
to see the right click menu.

new version 3.1

-Copy and delete buttons added
-improved gettext translation (I've included French translation)


Notes:

Copy is to $HOME i.e. /root or guest depending in how you
logged in. It uses the command cp -rf. There is no
check for a similar named file or folder!!

Delete will work on file or folder. You will get a warning message.

Can you state the pros and cons of using bulldog instead of the standard xfce finder?

Zigbert wrote pfilesearch for Puppy linux originally, then
the Porteus team adapted it to Porteus XFCE. It is well written
but is a bit too complicated for me. He has 'pfind' to then
open the Rox (or Thunar window). This is excellent but the
Porteus guys haven't been able to get 'pfind' to work :x

So Bulldog finder is a good substitute. If you can't get it to work
you should tell me. It only works for Thunar.
