rox and xfce problem.

Hi. I started using rox filer on fedora 19. I downloaded rox-all, uncompressed in /opt/rox-all and then i executed show-apps and rox-session for testing the session.

But now when i login "as normal" using xfce, i see the rox desktop/toolbar and xfce panel on top. I tried removing /opt/rox-all but it doesn't work. I want to use rox-filer ( greatest filer ever made :D ) but inside xfce if possible. So i need to uninstall rox-session or fix the problem.
Here you can see the xfce panel on the middle of the screen. Everything else is rox, including right-click menues.

Thanks.

USB Mass storage

The impression I get is that other filers (such as thunar) directly read
devices such as USB sticks, presumably via udev, whereas ROX doesn't handle
these at al, and we are reliant on unmaintained apps such as DevTray. With it's
dependence on HAL there is no possibility of it working on new and upcoming
distros.

I know ROX itself has been more-or-less left to itself for a long time, but is
there any possibility of it being brought up to date? I don't underestimate
the difficulty of doing this, but it would give me a great deal of peace of
mind (and I'm sure I'm not alone).

P.S.
I can still 'wow' strangers with the speed and flexibility of ROX + Openbox :)

Unable to launch rox-filer after installation in OpenBSD 5.6

Hi,

As root, I installed rox-filer on my new OpenBSD 5.6 operating system.

In an Xterm, I typed rox and it failed to launch. I tried other variations such as

rox-filer
rox-filer-2.11

and all failed to launch.

Could someone help me please?

Thanks in advance.

Ralph

Is ROX dead?

There seems to be no life on the site and very little on this list. :'(

ROXAudioRecorder

Just to let people know I've now written a simple audio recorder program.
This is called ROXAudioRecorder and can be downloaded via a link from

http://www.audiomisc.co.uk/software/index.html

The source code is included as usual. And the download is a 21k tgz.

It saves recordings as LPCM wave files.

It works here for all the USB ADCs I have. But note I've only designed it
to cover stereo 16/24/32 bit LPCM. There is a Help file in the
application's directory to explain how to set it up and use it. I hope that
it should work with most audio cards and devices that use the common ALSA
formats, etc. There's a Help file provided to explain in more detail.

Cheers,

Jim

FTP app?

Is there an FTP app for ROX/ROXfiler? Ideally one based on the standard
commands but  giving a desktop GUI. Ideally like FTPc or similar?

I've just done an install on a new machine and have completely forgotten how to
enable this - unfortunately it's one of the few things I didn't put in my
notes :(

Anyone know how to do it?

Re: ROX-Filer Copy Command to CIFS

I am not in a position to do this.  Perhaps you, or other
long-standing ROX developers might be better placed to implement the
change.

The mailing list contains the following from july/August 2012.
http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_name=501B1B7F.5030909%40pelena.com.au&forum_name=rox-devel

It appears the symptoms are similar to those observed when using CIFS.
 A patch was offered at that time, however it is unlear whether it was
implemented.

ROX-Filer Copy Command to CIFS

I'm working with the lead developer of antiX.  Since 2007 all its
releases have shipped with ROX-Filer and Pinboard as the distro
defaults.

Hoping to find help with a bogus ROX-Filer error message that can be
obtained when copying files to a cifs (Samba) share.  The error says
the copy failed, but in fact completes successfully.

antiX also ships with other file managers, SpaceFM and Midnight
Commander (mc).  The error message is not generated when using these
or the standard CLI "cp" command.

The problem seems to be caused by the way ROX-Filer copies files and
dirs using the command "cp -p".

There is a workaround mentioned in the Troubleshooting section of this
ROX reference guide.  Look in the sub-section "Errors when copying to
Windows partitions"
http://rox.sourceforge.net/desktop/book/export/html/1.html.
Unfortunately it cannot be used when mounting cifs (Samba) shares as
the "quiet" option is invalid.

Is there a way to force the "cp" rather than "cp -p"?

Alternatively, could an option be added to ROX-Filer-->Options-->Drag
and Drop-->(or similar) to make parameters to the "cp" command user
specifiable?

DevTray borked :(

This has been a bit flaky for a while now producing 'Insertion Error' when
trying to open CDs but nevertheless succeeding eventually, and as I don't have
much use for CDs these days I've not bothered with it.

However, with the latest version of debian testing it has failed completely.
(This is on the computer at work - I haven't done the latest upgrade at home)

Also, I can't file a bug report because the error 'save' dialogue doesn't work
either!

Looking at the on-screen report there is something about HAL and udev not
getting a reply in time.

As a temporary measure I can get round this using pmount and pumount but I
really would like a solution that plays nice with ROX. If I use pmount to
access a USB stick I can't then unmount via the ROX dialogue .

I know there hasn't been any development for a long time now, but I'd be very
grateful if someone could have a look at this.
