lfm is a simple but powerful file manager for the UNIX console. The application has been developed with the ol' good Midnight Commander as model.

Requirements:

lfm is written in Python_ and need curses module. It needs Python v2.0 or maybe higher, it won't work with v1.5. Since version 0.90, *lfm* needs ncurses >= v5.x because of its
handling of terminal resizing.

All modern UNIX flavours (Linux, *BSD, Solaris, etc) will run it without problems.

Installation:

lfm is very easy to install, just keep next steps:

1. Download sources

2. Uncompress file

3. Build:

python setup.py build

4. Install, as root::

python setup.py install

5. Run it:

lfm

To let 'lfm' to change to panel's current directory after quiting with q, Q or F10 keys, you must add next code to /etc/bashrc or to your ~/.bashrc:

lfm()
{
/usr/bin/lfm "$*" # type here full path to lfm script
LFMPATHFILE=/tmp/lfm-$$.path
cd "`cat $LFMPATHFILE`"
rm -f $LFMPATHFILE
}

If you don't use bash or csh shell, above lines must be different.
