PCManFM-Qt Reaches a Quite Usable State

The LXQt project is steadily developed. While the image viewer lximage-qt just got some polishing lately, the Qt port of PCManFM file manager also reaches a quite usable state.

Some notable changes are:

  • Add dir tree to the side pane
  • Improved file popup menu
  • Able to open the selected files with arbitrary apps
  • Improved handling when trying to open an executable file.
  • Improved statusbar info
  • Many bug fixes

Though we don’t have a stable release yet, basically the feature set of the Qt port is quite close to the earlier 1.0 version of the gtk+ version. Users interested to the project are encouraged to test the latest code in our git repo. Patches are always welcomed! :-)

Here is a guide for building lxqt components from git.
