    pcmanfm version - 1.1.0 (as I hope because pcmanfm --version does not work and parameter --help is little bit confusing:

  • Thank you for the report. I'm afraid your build is broken somehow. The output for --help clearly states that something is broken - it should never show you those internal data from translation file. It might be some internationalization libraries bugs or mixed 64 and 32 libraries or whatever else. I never can reproduce your bug, I'm sorry.

    This issue is happening for me as well. When I press CTRL-t to open a new tab (even when there are only 2 tabs) the location in the tab only show "...". Similar to what you would see if there were too many tabs open.

    I'm running version: 1.1.0

    For check I recompiled libfm / pcmanfm (against gtk3), however this issue remains as ever.

    Maybe a bug in gtk3 (on Fedora 18: 3.6.4). If I change version 1.1.0 of pcmanfm/src/pcmanfm.c line 186 from

    if(G_UNLIKELY(!gtk_init_with_args(&argc, &argv, "", opt_entries, GETTEXT_PACKAGE, &err)))
    if(G_UNLIKELY(!gtk_init_with_args(&argc, &argv, " ", opt_entries, GETTEXT_PACKAGE, &err)))
    (i.e. add one space to parameter_string option in gtk_init_with_args), pcmanfm --help shows
    non-garbage help message.
