    Default LXDE - Filemanager

    Once in a while you use a filemanager and with LXDE there is a problem.
    Well, i need to address this on the LXDE forum.
    Anyway, if i copy files from one place to another it sometimes says it
    can't because of a filerror. mmm...
    Also if you want to copy new files into existing folders and you click
    skip, it skips everything and not just the already existing files.
    Now i have to relay on the terminal to do that job with a command like this.
    Code:
    no|cp -r -v /source folder/* /destination folder
    This will copy everything that is not already present and skips
    automatically everything that is already present.

    I am debating with myself if that behaviour is a bug or if the
    filemanager simply has limitations.
    So before i go to the LXDE forum i was thinking to ask here.

    PCManFM was developed and then development stopped and then development resumed; I haven't encountered any of the problems you mention in openSUSE LXDE but that may be because I haven't pushed it that far - it is on my reserve machine, not my production machine.

    I use it quite often and I have never encountered this.

    You could also ask on IRC channel freenode #opensuse-lxde when the openSUSE community packagers for LXDE is logged on.

    Sadly i can not find a log for the filemanager. Not sure if it has one.
    Anyway, yes i will do that. With Gnome and KDE i did not have this
    particular problem, but it did happen. Strange.
