dfm 0.99.9

dfm is a filemanager like OS/2 WPS.
DFM is a file manager for Linux and other UNIX like Operating Systems. DFM is the abrvabation for Desktop File Manager.

"Desktop" stands for the capability to place icons on the root window. The idea to write DFM came from OS/2. For a long time I had worked with OS/2.

Using Linux I miss a desktop that provides easy launching programs, managing files and their association. I think only a program like the WPS can provide this.

Here are some key features of "dfm":

· Normal view, Detail view, Structure view
· Icons may have any size
· placement of icons is free (Normal view)
· every file have its own icon and startcommand
· copy, move and link files
· The desktop is a special folder in the homedirectory - There the user can place links to favourite programs or folders of the system
· every DFM-window have its own backgroundpixmap or color
· XV thumbnails are used as icons
· XDND drag support
· Offix drag support


· You need "The Gimp Toolkit" from the GTK+ homepage. (Version 1.2+)
· You also need the "XPM Library": libXpm.4.7.tar.gz from Sunsite or the The XPM Format and Library homepage. The archive xpm-3.4k.tar.gz (source) contains the library version 4.11 (>4.7) !
