Hi Andry,

In terms of man hours,I do think it be worth time to set up a 'quick' wiki page to give links etc. as to how to do such testing. As the areas I knew of are out-dated, can you please take some time to make a page up so that people who want to test can follow how to do this.

Thanks,

Phill.

    PPA builds already have all debug info included so no rebuild will be
required. Using debugger and environment from that page is very essential
to get details though.

    Yes, forum exists, but, seriously, forum isn't a place to report
bugs. All the reports are very welcomed in PCManFM's bug tracker at
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=browse&group_id=156956&atid=801864
don't hesitate to write there and include details how developers can
reproduce the bug.

    Thank you very much for crossposting this.

    PPA builds are "bleeding edge", not released yet versions so everyone
are welcome to use them (in fact, libfm/pcmanfm is very much more feature
rich) but be ready to catch bugs and those bugs should be reported not to
Ubuntu but to developers, see link to bug tracker above.
    Thank you very much.

    With best regards.
