Someone asked me how to send a file directly by mail, from within PCManFM. She has always done that way before, and I heard it was possible in Xfce and in Gnome.

New PCManFM and Libfm versions to come (I am testing beta 1.2 now):
Would it be possible to have something such as "Edit -> Configure custom actions" as in Thunar menu? Or in the preferences section ? (Any nice gui instead of having to add a file such as:

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Action
Name=Send by mail
Profiles=on_files;

[X-Action-Profile on_files]
Exec=sylpheed --attach %F
TryExec=/usr/bin/sylpheed
Name=Send files with Sylpheed
MimeTypes = all/allfiles;

under "~/.local/share/file-manager/actions/"

would be really convenient!

Thanks for the good work!

Regards,
Mélodie

  • There are no plans to create a tool for those files editing. I believe you can use Nautilus-Actions Configuration Tool for that purpose though.
    Thank you very much.

    Just to confirm, this great feature will be present in v1.3?

    In that case, thanks a lot!

     
  • 2treddel23: Well, it may be but may be not. There are no exact plans for it since it will simply duplicate the Nautilus-Actions Configuration Tool which works just fine, and duplicating it isn't the best approach. I really think about adding an option to start the Nautilus-Actions Configuration Tool somehow via menu instead.
