About rox


Hi folks,

Ubuntu 7.04 server amd64

Please advise which repo provides "rox", the light weight file manager?

$ sudo apt-cache search rox
can't find it.

TIA


B.R.

On Ubuntu (at least from version 7) it's as easy as this:

- open the Applications menu from Gnome (or equivalent for KDE)
- open the Add/Remove tool, at the bottom of the menu
- select to search from all possible reposities, not just the open source/"free" ones that are the default
- make sure the category "Everything" (or equivalent) is selected from the left pane
- type 'rox' or some other search word to the search box and start the search
- if the app was found, select it from the list to be installed
- if it wasn't found, it's not in the official Ubuntu reposities and you'll need to hunt the .deb files from the web or add a reposity that holds it (note: adding extra reposities is at your own risk)

EDIT: with apt-get I'd just alter the reposity files to enable all reposities (that suit the situation), then
Code:
apt-get update && apt-get install rox

Hi b0uncer,


Tks for your info.

I'm running Fluxbox, a light-weight desktop manager. Problem solved. The name of the package should be "rox-filer". I got it installed.
