VFU File Manager is console (text mode) file manager for UNIX/Linux.
During the years I tried to make short attractive list of features which VFU has. 'Attractive' as 'Advertising' above :) and it does not seem to work... at least it didn't for me and I never liked it.
I made all possible to make VFU cover all file managing needs and offer large set of behaviour options. If I succeeded or not, you can decide for yourself but without trying I believe noone can say for sure.
1. how to compile vfu
run `make' from vfu base directory
this should compile everything
to compile each part of vfu manually do this:
-- go to `vslib' directory
-- run `make'
-- go to `vfu' directory
-- run `make'
if something goes wrong, check these:
-- if your `curses.h' file locations is not `/usr/include/ncurses'
you have to change this in the Makefile.
-- if vslib library is not in the `../vslib' directory you also
have to change this in the Makefile.
2. how to install vfu
run `install' script from vfu base directory
install script checks if all required files are available/built and then does this:
cp vfu/vfu rx/rx_* /usr/local/bin
cp vfu.1 /usr/local/man/man1
cp vfu.conf /usr/local/etc
3. how to install vfu manually
-- you have to copy `vfu' in the `/usr/local/bin' or
`/usr/bin' directory and set mode to 755 `rwxr-xr-x'
the owner is not significant ( root is also possible ).
-- there is preliminary man page ( vfu.1 ) which could be
copied to /usr/man/man1.
-- copy all `rx/rx_*' tools to /usr/local/bin
-- install Net::FTP perl module if needed.
