I’m using Tux Commander for my daily work, and I find it very useful and simple to use, congratulation.
But : I don’t understand how to use the command line. Every time I type a command in it, it only opens a terminal, then nothing happens.
For example, I type vi : vi dosn’t open.
I put the cursor on a text file, than I type vi : nothing happens.
I put the cursor on a text file called config, than I type vi config : nothing happens.
I tried vi %s : nothing happens too.
The only command that works is cd. But it not useful, because the auto-completion with TAB doesn’t work, so clicking with the mouse on the directory in the panel is quicker.
So, I never use it.
What is the way to use it ? Do you have any useful example ?
And if this command line isn’t useful at all, is there a way to hide it ?
Nobody knows how to use the command line panel ?
Thx for the help.
Commandline cannot be hidden in current version.
It's designed to work just like the one in Total Commander, without any unix-specific enhancements. It's just a supplemental feature, you should not have need to use it.
Every command (applies to file association system as well) can be executed in a terminal, without terminal or with autodetection. The autodetection looks for libX11 linked to a binary you're trying to run, it's possible that vi links with libX11 but doesn't use it. Turn off the autodetection in Settings -> Preferences -> General -> Executing from commandline.
See http://tuxcmd.sourceforge.net/description.php for keybindings applicable to the command line.
