This seems nice! tested it briefly, loved it!

However, I run into some bugs with the "navbar".
is this ur own custom widget or is there some
qt only equivalent to the KUrlNavigator?

The bookmarkssystem, have u planned
putting it into a QDockWidget or some other
like a view with a QSplitter? having only a
menusystem for this is...... too slow for me.
(did not find anythign regarding this in todo)

Also, there could be some toggleable (not sure
how to spell that) QToolButtons for the view
for easy swith....

Sry bout the 20 questions but I feel kinda
excited about this little program :D

I have also planned on trying to write a similar
qt file manager however, I've neither the time
nor the skills :(

Hi... it's me again...

I've some suggestions regarding the icons... they
are hardcoded to search for oxygen icons... this is
not optimal, at least not for me as I tend to use
more monochromatic themes. so maybe looks for the
icon from the theme instead?

example:
pathline.cpp:91
arrow->setIcon(QIcon("/usr/share/icons/oxygen/16x16/actions/arrow-right.png"));

to:

arrow->setIcon(QIcon::fromTheme("arrow-right",QIcon("/usr/share/icons/oxygen/16x16/actions/arrow-right.png")));

then I set the previewwidget.cpp:51
from:
ui->label->setPixmap(QPixmap("/usr/share/icons/oxygen/128x128/places/folder.png"));
to:
ui->label->setPixmap(QIcon::fromTheme("folder", QIcon("/usr/share/icons/oxygen/128x128/places/folder.png")).pixmap(QSize(128,128),QIcon::Normal));

it works but it's not optimal either...
then I "fixed" the statusbar icons the same way :)

Anyways, are u still developing this?

Yes, in fact some icons are hardcoded, like the arrows in navigation bar. I need to change that.
There is already code written to get icons using the freedesktop specification, so most of the hard part is done.


Quote:it works but it's not optimal either...

Hmn you say that isn't optimal, why?
I have a class called FileIconProvider in file_icon_provider.hpp that gets the icons, but it still uses QIcon::fromTheme() if you have a Qt version >=4.6, since Qt's implementation is slightly faster.Although i think my implementation provides more icons.

Quote:Anyways, are u still developing this?
Yes, the latest version was released two days ago. I'll have less time in the next few months due to works and exams, but i'll try to keep releasing new versions.
Keep giving sugestions, bug reports or even code. I created a project page on Savannah so people can submit bug reports, but i'm still waiting for approval. In the meantime let me know here, or if you prefer you can always let me know here

Hey,

Thanks for the feedback.

Some things are custom others are already provided by Qt. What are you talking about exactly?

Yes, definetly. The ToDo file isn't very reliable, i need to update it.

Yes, that's a good idea. :)

You didn't ask 20 questions :P, but anyway i'm glad to see you are interested in this program.

I've been looking for a file manager to use with Razor-QT desktop so this looked promising. Compilation was fine but it won't run. Don't know where else to post a bug report.

QT version is 4.7.3. I know how it looks but the rest of the system is perfectly stable.

Hey,

Glad to see some interest from other OSes. About your question, well i don't really know. But have you tried it in Windows? It should be cross-platform, although there might be some platform specific code i haven't ported to other OSes.
Let me know what's missing.

Grab the latest SDK from http://qt.nokia.com/downloads
Then using QtCreator just open the scope.pro, that is located in scope's source root folder.
After that it should be pretty straight forward.

The panel show oxugen icons for folders, but it are not used in folder view. Personaly, i prefer the oxygen icon, but the icons must have to be the same.
The views (icon, list, terminal) wold have a shortcut. I suggest f2, f3 and f4 if you want only 3 views, or a single shortcut for change the view mode (i prefer f4)
In my system the mime types are not associated with programs. XDG provides this lists, i think.
And, the zoom must be changed with control + mouse wheel.

forgeting mime types, are little tings, little usability tricks.

Here they are the same, which system are you using?
Anyway i'll look into it.

It's the same issue as before. (get/set)textMargins() require Qt versions newer than 4.4. :(
The other issue was easy to fix. But this is more complicated, first because i didn't produce that code and secondly i would have to simulate the textMargin's behaviour.

The best i can do now is check for the Qt version and if it is below a certain version, disable that feature, so you can compile and run it.
I don't have much time now even to do that, but i'll try to be as quick as possible.

Thanks.
