So, where do we go with spacefm from here? The latest version is 0.7.0 - details at http://igurublog.wordpress.com/. Do we run with a packaged version of that with hal enabled? Has it been tested enough on various DEs and WMs to warrant its inclusion into the repos? Do we have a consensus here?
I personally am more than happy with it, and have been using it as my default FM since I found it three weeks ago.
It has not been tested enough yet, imo. I would suggest to let it in testing for a few weeks or months until enough people say it didn't break anything. I have started a Archlinux where the hal problem does not exist, to see how it goes there, and of course there it works well. Here I am not sure of what goes on, but since a week or so I can't see any partition in any of my file managers anymore. I will not say it comes from spacefm, it could be anything else, but I think being careful can not hurt.
Thanks Archie - downloaded and in place. One query - when I insert a usb stick I get a double entry in the device pane. I had noticed in the 0.6.3 version. Has anyone come across this before I post in the spacefm bug section?
I don't see any device at all anymore in PCLinuxOS. Maybe should I reinstall gvfs, or something like that ?
And I should probably try Spacefm in a new install for a while. But I will miss time. If you find the latest version good, what about providing it for the testing repos, so that more people can try it ?
