[Solved] missing pcmanfm service menus

Post#1 by fanthom » 11 Mar 2011, 00:12

not a bug but rather a feature request. posting here as i'm lucky with 'Community help...' category so far :)

As you probably know dolphin/konqueror has service menus specific for Porteus (unpack xzm, mount,xzm, buiild xzm, convert deb->xzm, convert rpm->xzm, etc...) which many members finds useful.
would be nice if someone could write similar ones for pcmanfm (default LXDE manager).

let me know in case of successful adoption and i'll include it in default ISO.

Cheers

Hello,
I did service menu before to work with xdialog, this service can activate/deactivate LZM modules.

/usr/share/applications/xactivate.desktop

Code: Select all

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Type=Application
Name=xactivate
Exec=xactivate %f
Icon=cdr
NoDisplay=true
MimeType=application/x-lzm;
then I added MimeType

Code: Select all

echo "application/x-lzm=xactivate.desktop;" >> /root/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list
it's simple, you can read more here .

I think some C coding skills (no luck here) are required for the task

http://pcmanfm.git.sourceforge.net/git/ ... .c;hb=HEAD

for xzm extracting/packing maybe this can help.
