#664 Desktop view not the same that standart Icon view

pcmanfm (96)

On 1.1.0, the Desktop is displayed like an Icon view, but with the filename of the files truncated to only 2 lines. It's similar to bug #3572974. The ratio height / width seems to be still 1/2 (when it's now 3/4 on Icon view). Also, there is no way to display the full name of the file (no tooltips like on Icon View).


  • This behavior isn't 1.1 specific, it shows exactly 2 lines of file name since ancient pcmanfm 0.9.1 version. :)
    I hope to add tooltips there in 1.2 version.
    Thank you very much.

  • I've added tooltips into GIT version already. Support for 'show_full_names' config option will be added later too.

  • We hope this issue is completely fixed in the Git repository recently.
    Check it out when it's possible for you and if the bug still exists then reopen the report, please.
    Thank you very much.
