Re: Tree View: dotted lines? show files too? alternate tree root?

Not sure what you want, but pcmanfm has a "Tree View". You can choose between "Places" and "Directory Tree" in left column menu. "Tree View" starts from either "/ " or "~". Just leave the tree view open with the desired working folder open ...

Re: how to get a desktop "luncher" icon that runs a specified program in lxterminal??

I am confused by your account of your activities and their relationship to get a desktop launcher. First, does your mlab launch when you type /usr/local/lib/mlab/mlab , or sudo /usr/local/lib/mlab/mlab into the terminal and press enter? The install for mlab that I managed to find said the command to...

Re: LXDE logout menu reboot shutdown missing

Starting with pcmanfm heading menu, click as follows: Edit>Preferences>Layout, and be sure Trash Can is ticked. This should put Trash Can in the pcmanfm Places menu. The command to launch Trash is: "pcmanfm trash:///". You can use that to put "Trash" essentially anywhere on the d...

Re: LXDE logout menu reboot shutdown missing

If you cannot find out what is causing your problem, just install a different logout program. My favorite is lepo-logout (https://github.com/hakerdefo/lepo-logout). Just download it and follow the installation instructions. Image: Image .

Re: automount FM options

Check your pcmanfm config file, ~/.config/pcmanfm/default/pcmanfm.conf, to make sure it says side_pane_mode=Directory Tree. There is also a universal configuration file: /etc/xdg/pcmanfm/default/pcmanfm.conf. Try setting side_pane_mode=1 , or side_pane_mode=0.

Re: Feature request

I literally find it to be a headache to view any computer display with bifocals. Go to a dollar store, or your equivalent, and purchase some glasses that are not bifocals and work good with your eyes at about 20 inches. Store them near your computer and use them just for computer work.

Re: Menu panel vanishes

Check the length of your side panel. Maybe it is covering of the other panel, where the 2 panels meet, and thus covers the menu icon. You won't want to make both panels 100% long. Also, you can just add another menu icon, placing it where ever you desire in either panel.

Re: Menu panel vanishes

what I want to do is to add a side application launch bar on desktop So do it. If there is no panel there, then just add one. The first link that I gave in my previous post tells how to add an fbpanel anywhere. The second link, which is old, should tell how to add extra lxpanels - think you just ri...

Re: automount FM options

Here is what the developer posted in 2012: "xfe can mount or unmount disks, but it's only *manually*, assuming you have all the stuff in your fstab file." See https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2096007 for more about his statement. Why do you prefer xfe to pcmanfm? Xfe is very heavy...
