I thought I would try Bodhi 4, so I installed Beta3 on an old laptop. It installed with no problems and runs well, and my only comment so far is that although PCManFM is installed there is no application launcher for it, so it does not appear in the menus. I got over this by creating a personal application launcher for it.

 

I'm not very keen on the default theme, but that's just me. It's no problem - when Bodhi 4 stable is released in a few weeks, I'll install the Forum theme. That's one of the great things about Bodhi, it's so customizable.

 

Many thanks Jeff and the other devs for creating the best distro ever!





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

I removed the launcher to avoid duplication in the menu. The places menu provides access to the file manager in the top level menu.

 

Themes are in the 4.0 repos now for reference as well.

Silly of me - I hadn't realized the menus had been rearranged. Thanks Jeff.

 

One question: how can one add a PCManFM icon to the iBar if there isn't a launcher for it?

You should be able to click on the icon of the window still to add it right? If not you'd need to create a launcher for it.

For those, like me, who like an icon for PCManFM on an iBar, what I did was to create a personal application launcher for PCManFM, including in it a suitable icon (icons are at /usr/share/icons then choose from e.g. the gnome folder). I then added it to the iBar in the usual way.

I have encountered the problem.

Because the Places do not see anything, I can not start the PCManFM from the menu!

The problem may have occurred in the use of non-English.

For reference you can simple drag the icon from the PCManFM window to your ibar. No need to manually create a launcher for it first.

hello, sorry I made a great mistake.

I tried to drag the PcManFM to the iBar, but I lost the icon!

where is located the default icon? or anyway, what can I write in "edit icon"?

It should be easy to bring the icon back.

 

Let's try this:

 

Try to open PcMan from a quick launcher (alt esc). Then catch the FM icon on the border and drag it to the iBar again.

I'm having a problem here.  I can drag the PCMANFM icon down to the bar at the bottom, but when I release it it disappears.

the ibar is also located on that shelf.  you may have to drag it to the appropriate spot if i am correct.  on my desktops i have the shelf on top and collapsible and an ibar located on/in the shelf.

If all else fails, create a personal application launcher for PCManFM.
