Motif version of the X File Manager (XFM) ?
 
Hello,

I start to be a fan of X/Motif. It is definitely easy to use and to make a programme. It does not use G++ as do FLTK. X/Motif is not heavy to install and it is nice. X/Motif looks also like UNIX.

I see only advantage why to use X/Motif and to avoid QT, KDE LIBS, heavy install GTK >=2.0,...

Would you eventually know a possible X/Motif of XFM, which could be available on DEBIAN ?

It seems that you will have to build that yourself, and last commit dates back 6 years ago. Good luck.

PS: if you are willing to use very few RAM, why use X at all? There are console file managers like Midnight Commander (mc) and web browsers like lynx and links that work pretty well. Yu can run that in a framebuffer and get the fonts and images you want.

Good luck indeed. For fun, that's going to be fun. From my first hello world, after GCC, I am now at learning X/Motif, once done, QT.
