Maces has made a number of videos presenting some of the core components of LXDE. The videos are in English. Additionally he produced a German version for each component. The first video is about the LXDE Filemanager, PCManFM.
PCMan File Manager (PCManFM) is a file manager application developed by Hong Jen Yee from Taiwan which is meant to be a replacement for Nautilus, Konqueror and Thunar. Released under the GNU General Public License, PCManFM is free software. PCManFM is the standard file manager in LXDE which is also developed the same author in conjunction with other developers.

One response to “PCManFM: PCMan File Manager Video by Maces”
Well, PCManFM looks as very promising file manager, mostly from its simplicity – the problem is it has still lots of very serious usability bugs, like desktop icons like ‘My Documents’ linked to ‘~/’ directory instead of ‘~/Documents/’ – the usual would be ‘Home’ icon for ‘~/’ directory, and ‘Documents’ (or ‘My Documents’) icon for ‘~/Documents/’ directory.
