Stupid file browser menu
System Software
Score 64%
Description:

A simple file browser that lives in the systray.

Features:

Browse the local file system.
Open files by clicking on them. (!)
Open a directory in your file manager by middle-clicking on the folder, or a file in it.
Or do the same thing by double-clicking on a folder.
Drag and drop from the menu, but not to it.
A mostly useless context menu. Right-click.

Depends on:
Python (2.7 / 3.2+)
PyQt4
pyxdg

Installation:
setup.py install (as root, probably)

Works for me.

It needs a newer python. Either 2.7 or 3.2.

That was a missing feature from kde 3 to 4.
Does it have any command line parameters?
Specifying the root dir would be useful to (say) create .desktop files that opens a menu just under the mouse
