ROX-Filer 2.9.0

I have compiled the latest version in Puppy 4.3. I want to use it in Karmic Puppy, compiling it in 4.3 ensures that the same package will work in any build from 4.3 upward.

I did compile this awhile ago, but had problems with the mime types -- the thumbnails did not display properly. Ttuuxxx solved that, and I looked at ttuuxxx's Rox package -- yes there are name changes in some mime files. I now have it working properly. Thanks ttuuxxx.

Shared-mime-info package is now upgraded to the latest, 0.70. The 'dev' component now goes into the 'devx' SFS file.

Can add tree navigation to ROX?
Hi, Barry.

Can add directory tree navigation to ROX, in similar fashion to Windows Explorer? I think it is very usable feature. Or maybe add a secondary file manager in the official Puppy release.
I was tried to install PCMan file manager and lxde but I am lack of knowledge and have encontered always some missing library.

Another question. SeaMonkey crashes frequently, and other Puppy applications sometimes crashes. They closes without information to the user. As a Windows user, I expect a blue screen or a debug window, or a crash report. I think that worst that a blue screen is no information at all.
Can add some information to the user when an application crashes?

Barry, many thanks for Puppy, it is a great distro and I like it very much.

Regards from Uruguay.

sfs technology
I've been a fan of appdir, but it looks like sfs is now able to do it with the new 2.6.30 kernel. See

Also logrow for aufs:
Alejandro, try Boxpup 413 - it has Thunar file manager.
