#290 list sizes with fixed units


Let the user select a fixed unit for displaying file sizes e.g. Byte, KB, MB, GB

Listing Now
File1.txt 100 bytes
File2.txt 10.0 MB
File3.txt 1.2 GB

Listing with MB selected
File1.txt 0.1 MB
File2.txt 10 MB
File3.txt 1200 MB

In my opinion this makes comparing file sizes much cleaner and easier, since I don't have to read and comprehend the units
each time I look at a size.

    This issue should be handled in 1.2.0-beta0 version of libfm using configuration option "list_view_size_units". Test it, please, when it's possible for you. Note that you should recompile pcmanfm as well to use new version of libfm.
    Thank you very much.

    I got a crash, when i tried to open the preferences, but editing
    and inserting


    worked as expected, also b,K,G.

    That is very bad if you got any crash. Can you reproduce it? If you can then, please, let me know exact steps to get the crash so I can fix it. Better opening the ticket in the Bugs tracker. Thank you very much.
