File managers for Window Maker
As I know there were at least three file managers for Window Maker: FSViewer, WMfinder and GWorkspace.
FSViewer 0.2.5 is accessible here: http://www.bayernline.de/~gscholz/linux/fsviewer/.
WMfinder 0.2.9 was accessible here: http://www.imago.ro/wmfinder but now that site is dead. I found WMfinder 0.5 here: http://ftp.icm.edu.pl/packages/windo...der-0.5.tar.gz. I donít know if version 0.5 is newer or older than 0.2.9.
GWorkspace 0.8.6 is accessible here: http://www.gnustep.it/enrico/gworkspace/. To compile it you have to compile and install first GNUstep Startup accessible here: http://www.gnustep.org/. Instead of compile it you can install binaries for your system accessible here: http://www.gnustep.org/resources/sources.html.
I installed binaries for Slackware: gnustep-back-0.16.0-i486-1.tgz, gnustep-base-1.18.0-i486-1.tgz, gnustep-gui-0.16.0-i486-1.tgz and gnustep-make-2.0.8-i486-1.tgz. Unfortunately gnustep-make is invalid and doesnít contain ld_lib_path.sh script in /usr/GNUstep/System/Library/Makefiles/ directory so I had to put it in the system after extracting it from the sources. Then I compiled and installed GWorkspace. It works but on my machine (ThinkPad T60 with ATI Radeon X1300) it displays vertical stripes when I use scrolling (TrackPoint).
I tried to compile it but make displayed such error messages:
I tried to compile it but configure displayed such error message:
I managed to compile only GWorkspace but it works invalid when scrolling directories contents. I suppose FSViewer and WMfinder sources have to be customized to the contemporary libraries.
Personally I donít use such file managers. I like Midnight Commander opened in xterm window.
If you know where is accessible WMfinder 0.2.9 source let us know.
If you like Window Maker you could look here: 15 applications for Window Maker. Especially interesting is post #9. I add to it from time to time some new information found on Window Maker mailing lists.
