Title: (Solved)Gnome Commander on Netbook
Post by: Toonman on June 27, 2012, 11:06:49 am
I have just installed Gnome commander on my netbook as I wanted a double pane view. It has however become the default File manager over Nautilus.  This is flipin' annoying.  If I uninstall will it divert back to Nautilus?

OK, so I'm talking drivel....again.  I have PCmanfm installed as well as Gnome commander.  PCmanfm opens sometimes and Gnome commander others.  Pepermint on Samsung netbook.

OK I have unistalled Gnome Commander but I am still getting this..................Command "nautilus" returned error 1

On Volumes only

You need to point PCManFM to those commands so it recognizes PCManFM as the default file manager. Right now Nautilus is the default file manager for Ubuntu/Mint.

Very odd .. I tried installing gnome-commander and it gave me no problems.

did you ever right click a folder and select "Open with" then select gnome-commander ?

what are the contents of:
Code: [Select]
gedit ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list
and
Code: [Select]
gedit /usr/share/applications/defaults.list



Is your File Manager listed in the menu's at menu>Accessories>File Manager ?

It has appeared that it was more of a wider problem but thanks anyway.

Whats your favourite split pane file manger?

On the whole, in Peppermint, I just use PCManFM and open multiple tabs (or multiple instances) .. But for "split view" I have tried and quite liked ..

Sunflower .. Be Aware, it's currently an "Alpha" release so some things aren't perfect yet .. such as running an executables, etc. .. though you can open a terminal in one of the tabs.
(looks very promising, and works fine, depending on what you want it for)
