How to make PCManFM to always show the tab bar?

Post by rado84 »

Hi. In the past somehow I managed to make PCManFM to always show the tab bar, even when there's only one tab left open. The last time I did that was veeeery long time ago and I have absolutely no idea how I did it.

Any suggestions how can I do that again?

I'm using Arch with Cinnamon.

It turned out the Arch drunkards have broken something badly and the whole system behaved weirdly, that tab bar problem was just one of them.

If someone stumbles upon this looking for an answer: It's in PCManFM's Preferences:
Edit => Preferences => Layout => User Interface => Always show tab bar
and there is no problem with PCManFM on Arch (at least not this problem).

Are you sure you want to insult the developers of a very successful distro (20y anniversary! Yay!) like that?
As ArchLinux requires the user to do most of the work of the installation I'd start looking there for someone to blame.
