Xfe X File Explorer

Post#1 by floatbit » 21 Feb 2015, 05:51

Xfe (X File Explorer) is a graphical file manager for the X Window System for Unix and Unix-like systems, written by Roland Baudin. Its stated goals are simplicity, lightness and ease of use. The xfe file manager uses the FOX toolkit and is licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

Thanks. It looks good. We are in need of light packages for the older desktop. I imagine that your file explorer does not permit to surf the internet by itself? :wink:

Note: However I have build a thunar bundle with usm package manager which weights 5.9 megabytes to run in the kde environment, which compares advantageouly to your xfe module. :(
In addition, the problem with xfe is that it is not integrated with the porteus system. With each environment, the provided file manager provides a contextual menu to modify files into module, modules into directories ... .

was trying to do XForms Toolkit, which is awesome for light desktop and old machine,

http://xforms-toolkit.org/

but having some issues with gcc to compile a simple hello world, will try figure out later.
quite new with all these packaging and xzm stuff.

1.0 To build packages under porteus you need devel.xzm package:
http://dl.porteus.org/i486/current/modules/

2.0 The usm package manager in command line has sbo (slackbuild support):

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# usm sbo -b xfe
And you need libfox:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# usm -g libfox
 Nothing found for:  libfox 
root@porteus:~#
Fox-toolkit:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# usm -g fox-toolkit
 root@porteus:~#
Note: It seems that you have to build fox --with-xim configure option (see readme file in the fox-toolkit package)

3.0 You can also follow the slackware slack.build procedure:
http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13.1/system/xfe/

Slackbuild howto instructions:
http://slackbuilds.org/howto/

4.0 There is the kosher method to build a porteus package, the lightweight method in terms of megabytes:

In conclusion you can offer your second module to the community:
If not:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# usm -g xforms
 Nothing found for:  xforms 
root@porteus:~# 
You have:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# usm sbo -b xforms
And does it work? :wink:

Note: xforms was the basis for xfce:

i did it manually with xfe, not yet learn about USM,
but USM really ease a lot to have something inside porteus.

and what you suggest is even more COOOOOLLLL!!
:D :D :D :D
root@porteus:~# usm sbo -b xforms
it downloads and make automatically, only let us tgz2xzm, appreciate people who simplified the build process!,

thanks a lot, my hello world works now =)

Image

gcc hello.c -lforms -o hello
code copied from xforms toolkit example website

Code: Select all

#include <forms.h>

int main(int argc, char **argv)
{
    FL_FORM *form;

    fl_initialize(&argc, argv, 0, 0, 0);

    form = fl_bgn_form(FL_UP_BOX, 230, 100);
    fl_add_button(FL_NORMAL_BUTTON, 20, 20, 190, 60, "Hello world");
    fl_end_form();
 
    fl_show_form(form, FL_PLACE_MOUSE, FL_FULLBORDER, "Hello, world!");

    fl_do_forms();

    fl_hide_form(form);
    fl_finish();
    return 0;
}
sky is the limit!
