emelFM2 Iliad Release (File Manager)

I have released a File Manager for the iLiad. It uses the 3 paned approach similar to Midnight Commander. The attached zip file will work in any directory on the the iLiad.

A word of caution. Deleting files with the "Trash" icon will move them to /home/root/.local/Trash/Files. If you delete too large of a file from the memory card, it is possible to fill up the internal file system. I recommend that you do not use the trash function until I can sort out the root cause of this.

Adam, you can fix the problem with the trash setting the HOME environment variable in the run.sh script.

Loot at dillo's run.sh (it sets the HOME variable to the execution directory so that dillo can find the .dillorc configuration file in the installed dir, not in the home of the user).

Antartica.

P.S.: And thanks for the port :-).

Completely overlooked this File Manager. Many thanks AdamB. Seems just what I need. How do you manage it all? What about setting up a Master Class?

Manage What? Porting applications? It's pretty easy if you know a bit about linux. I've written a tutorial here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...8&postcount=35

I meant 'manage' in terms of time involved (even easy things take time). Your tutorial looks really helpful. Now I just need the password for my daughter's Ubuntu system...

OK, so I've got this installed and running, but don't have a clue how to use it! The user guide on the linked page is no use at all, as it refers to keyboard shortcuts to do everything (eg Shift>F9 to get the navigation window), but of course I can't use those on an Iliad. It also includes no explanation of the various toolbar icons.

I'm guessing all of this is pretty clear to anyone familiar with Linux, but I'm not!

Basically, I want to get to my Docs, Books, News and Notes folders, and to my various external drives, but simply can't find them or work out how to navigate even if I did know thier paths.

Anybody? Please? Pretty Please?

If someone could at least tell me the full paths to the "standard" folders, such as News, and to the various external storages, it'd be a start. And if anyone knows how to get to the Navigation Window without an F9 key, or how to get search to work (it does nothing AFAICT), that'd be even better!

Cheers,

Mark

I agree about the icons. They are a bit small, and not designed for gray scale.

Most external cards are under /media, e.g. /media/cf. If it isn't there, then try /mnt (/mnt/cf).

The user-accessible internal memory is /mnt/free, so if you have books etcetera on internal memory this will be /mnt/free/books. Typically, double tapping on a directory will switch to that directory.

IIRC Adam packaged it up so all you need to do is unzip it to somewhere, e.g. a CF card, USB or the iliad internal memory. Once unzipped it should appear in the contentlister. Click on it and it will install or run. Note that I think it will refresh the screen about 3 times on start up, so it might appear that something is going wrong but it is not.

The biggest problem I had with it initially is that it started with icons that I did not know the meaning of and had no text for the controls. You can use that to change to text instead of icons, if you wish. Look for the crossed spanners, this is the settings icon.
