which file manager can bookmark set of tabs like CubicExplorer?


I'm looking for a file manager which has
- tabs
- a folder tree column per tab
- can make bookmarks of sets of tabs

pcman file manager comes close, but does not bookmarks tabs as a set.

I installed CubicExplorer in Wine, but althou it work sort of, it looks bad. I would rather use something native.

Anyone?

SpaceFM has what you are after, although having multiple folders open from a bookmark is a little weird at the moment. By default it will not bookmark tabs as a set, but you an make a custom bookmark that will open multiple folders in tabs.

but it is seriously customizable. Up to 4 panes, with a panel memory system that remembers the difference in views between pane configurations.

ummm.

Seems I can not work out how to install with the self-extracting installer. Double click just gives me a textfile with this:

Quote:
#!/bin/bash
# self-extracting installer for spacefm

tmp=/tmp


########################################################################


offset=1680 # head file length + 1

if [ "$1" = "--help" ] || [ "$1" = "-h" ]; then
cat << EOF
SpaceFM Self-Extracting Installer
Usage: bash spacefm-VERSION-installer.sh [CONFIGURE-OPTIONS]

CONFIGURE-OPTIONS, if any, will be passed to the configure command

Example default with no options (installs as /usr/local/bin/spacefm):
bash spacefm-VERSION-installer.sh

Example with prefix (installs as /usr/bin/spacefm):
bash spacefm-VERSION-installer.sh --prefix=/usr

Example with GTK3 support:
bash spacefm-VERSION-installer.sh --with-gtk3

Example with deprecated hal support (udev support disabled):
bash spacefm-VERSION-installer.sh --enable-hal

Example with custom su command "mysu":
bash spacefm-VERSION-installer.sh --with-preferable-sudo=/usr/bin/mysu

if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then

if [ $? -ne 0 ] || [ ! -e "install" ]; then
echo "Error: This file may be corrupt"
rm -rf "$tdir"
exit 1

./install "$@"

rm -rf "$tdir"

exit

That's a good question.

What distro are you using?

From the spacefm manual

Installer

Quote:
If there are no packages for your distro, or you prefer to build SpaceFM with custom build options, a self-extracting installer is available in Downloads (click on a file and click View Raw to download). The installer MUST be run in a terminal. It automatically builds and installs, and should work with any recent distro. Run it like this:

bash spacefm-x.x.x-installer.sh

# or to see options:

bash spacefm-x.x.x-installer.sh --help
The installer requires the build dependencies listed in the README file. Build dependencies for the default GTK2 build include: (package names may vary on your distro)

autotools-dev bash build-essential dbus desktop-file-utils libc6 libcairo2 libdbus-1-3 libglib2.0-0 libgtk2.0-0 (>=2.18) libgtk2.0-bin libpango1.0-0 libstartup-notification0 libx11-6 shared-mime-info intltool pkg-config libgtk2.0-dev libglib2.0-dev fakeroot libstartup-notification0-dev libdbus-1-dev libudev0 (>=143) libudev-dev
Also recommended: udevil|pmount|udisks, eject, lsof, wget, ktsuss|gksu
If any dependencies are missing, examine the error, install missing packages, and try again.

To reinstall or upgrade, just run the latest installer again.
For easy manual build instructions please see the README file.

To authenticate downloads see authentication instructions.

NOTE: Enabling kernel polling is recommended after installing SpaceFM.
I haven't installed spacefm this way as their are debian packages available for it.

I had tried that, but that didn't work. I'm probably doing something wrong (newbie) just typing this in the terminal.

I noticed the error said something about the directory, so I cd'd there first then did bash and it did something. unfortunately unsuccessfull.

I found the right ppa for spacefm and installed it.

Its a nice file-manager, but does not have the functionality to save multiple-tabs. And no different views (compact, list, detail).

I installed cubicexplorer in Wine. But there are issues like not being able to copy-paste, so thats not an option either.

Any other suggestions?

you could look at xfe, but I don't know of any browser that supports bookmarking multiple tabs to one bookmark. with spacefm, you can make a menu bookmark entry for this, but its not automatic.

you could also look into dolphin, the default KDE file browser. its got a lot of features, but I don't know about the bookmarking thing.

by the way, spacefm does have compact, detail, and icon views.
