I made a quick review of pcmanfm2 and compare it with the old pcmanfm to
track regression between the 2 versions. Currently, I can identify those
- We can't use the terminal option inside the file manager (can't either
- There is no option "Open as root".
- The tab name is shown when there is only one tab
- Custom actions in the contextual menu are missing (like Extract here
- The "Applications" Menu doesn't seem to be supported for now (or I
didn't find how). A way to hide it until it's supported will be nice.
- View : Ability to remove and customize sidebar and the tools bar are
- No Search ability.
- Translation (but it's in progress)
More important for me are on the top of the list.
I also find some bugs, but some may be considered as feature request :
- When you set a wallpaper, the settings is not saved.
- When gvfs is not installed, pcmanfm2 still show the Trash, which cause
segfault when you click on it. It could be nice if not supported
location was hidden from the sidebar.
- It's the same for the Desktop, when it doesn't exist, it appears on
the sidebar and cause segfault if you click on it.
But for now, pcmanfm2 is really usable, and pretty as fast as the old
one. And having gvfs support is quite nice :)
