added libfm-gtk-lib what not work cos of non-existend dependency (yet) help me or give me a time

kyrias commented on 2016-05-18 09:24

I don't really have time to maintain this properly at the moment since I don't use it anymore. Someone who does, please adopt it.

gauthma commented on 2016-01-24 23:09

When trying to install this with pkgbuilder it complains that it can't find any .SRCINFO file...

Problem with pkgbuilder or with the AUR package?

aethel commented on 2015-10-27 16:41


One of the dependencies seems to be broken, I fixed it locally doing this:
- change libfm-gtk-git to libfm-gtk3-git
- add --with-gtk=3 to ./configure args


City-busz commented on 2015-04-15 17:24

The pcmanfm.install file shouldn't be added to the sources=() array. And 'pkg-config' shouldn't be added to the makedepends=() array, because it's part of the base-devel group.

LeonardK commented on 2014-08-02 09:17

is udisks no optional dep anymore?

orschiro commented on 2014-05-11 21:15


Can you please add lxmenu-data as an optional dependency?

It is actually preferred over gnome-menus, smaller and resolves an issue with empty open with dialogs.

kyrias commented on 2013-11-01 21:17

No idea of how that happened, fixed now though.

psychotrome commented on 2013-11-01 17:52

Fails to clone git repository with:

fatal: unable to access '': SSL: no alternative certificate subject name matches target host name ''

Changing "git+https://*" to just "git://*" fixed it. (Sourceforge support told me they don't allow https cloning through irc.)

kyrias commented on 2013-10-22 16:39

No problem, feel free to tell me if there's anything you'd like changed.

stevenvdb commented on 2013-10-22 11:25

sry marked wrongly as outdated

jleclanche commented on 2013-08-03 20:02

Please change dependency from libfm-git to libfm-gtk-git.

Alister.Hood commented on 2013-07-22 05:01

I think this needs to be updated to depend on libfm-gtk-git instead.

KaiSforza commented on 2013-04-10 21:44

This should be updated to reflect the new pacman 4.1 source array and version scheme.

jynnantonix commented on 2013-02-27 06:50


I just rebuilt the package and the md5sums are valid. Whatever the issue is must have been on your end.

desperat commented on 2013-02-15 16:02

My suggestion: try "spacefm-git" instead.

desperat commented on 2013-02-15 15:23

jynnantonix version - automake patch md5 sum wrong as well in libfm-git

M4rQu1Nh0S commented on 2013-01-23 08:31

jynnantonix version work good!
maintainer, use this!

jynnantonix commented on 2013-01-15 08:57

Fails with "You must have automake >= 1.11 installed." and then later " error: 'AM_PROG_CC_STDC': this macro is obsolete."

I uploaded patches and an updated PKGBUILD here (

I've also submitted the patches upstream:

oblique commented on 2012-07-23 00:01

please replace make with: make LDFLAGS="-lm ${LDFLAGS}"

Alister.Hood commented on 2012-07-18 07:01

Yes, I tend to follow bugs after reporting them :)
To be honest, I haven't upgraded automake again to test it. I was just trusting that it really is fixed.

Anonymous comment on 2012-07-17 09:36

@Alister.Hood The problem with automake 1.12 has been fixed now in the libfm Git master:;a=commit;h=35f0fe5d59c6209148660d2c3af33956fd0c6631

Alister.Hood commented on 2012-06-03 12:16

I reported that as a bug

And I used downgrade to downgrade from automake 1.12 so I could build it.

gymka commented on 2012-05-27 09:09

@gumper it want's either automake 1.10 either 1.11, not atleast 1.10(why? imho it's stupid logic) before line "./" add line "sed -i 's/if \[ "$AM_INSTALLED_VERSION" != "1\.10"/if \[ "$AM_INSTALLED_VERSION" != "1.12"/' ./" and it will work as it should.

gumper commented on 2012-05-19 02:39

When building libfm-git it fails and tells me that I need to have automake 1.10 or 1.11 installed. I have versions 1.12-1 and version 1.10.3-1 installed. Any idea why I get this message?

mango commented on 2012-03-14 05:52

The right-click crash is a call to a NULL function pointer on line 1329 in main-win.c because the parent class's signal handler was NULL. This patch fixes the crash:

Bug with closing pcmanfm while rigth-clicking affects me too. Removing ./config/{libfm,pcmanfm} not helps.
Pcmanfm works well if I use detailed list view- in this mode right-clicking works correctly.
Version of pcmanfm from repo works correctly with right-click in all modes.
Sorry for my english.

smoge commented on 2011-12-27 22:53

Try to remove ./config/{libfm,pcmanfm}. If it happens again report the issue to upstream. Or even better, isolate the commit that broke it with git bisect and report it.

Anonymous comment on 2011-12-22 03:00

Just installed pcmanfm-git (Dec 22, 2011).
I get "Segmentation fault" when right-clicking.
Anyone knows why?

drexya commented on 2011-05-11 11:47

If you don't like the very small size of the icons in the toolbar, add this to the PKGBUILD just before "msg "Starting make..."" :

sed -e '/gtk_toolbar_set_icon_size(GTK_TOOLBAR(win->toolbar), GTK_ICON_SIZE_SMALL_TOOLBAR);/d' \
-e '/gtk_toolbar_set_style(GTK_TOOLBAR(win->toolbar), GTK_TOOLBAR_ICONS);/d' \
-i "src/main-win.c"

Andrwe commented on 2011-01-02 16:34


there is an failure in the makedepends:
makedepends=('git' 'intltool' 'pkgconfig')

"pkgconfig" is since some time called "pkg-config" it only works until now because the package provides "pkgconfig" but this may be changed in future.
Would you please correct this?


jskier commented on 2010-10-14 00:38

Desktop is displayed properly but I can't use the file manager itself, it segfaults:

pcmanfm[3190]: segfault at 2c ip 00007f069bfc5d44 sp 00007fff97523bd0 error 6 in[7f069bf84000+e6000]

Please add lxmenu-data as dependency, the file-open dialog doesn't work without it.

What is the deal with the busted 'new tab' icon? its been like this for over a month, just seems wierd of all the things they havent fixed that. I just get a default icon for the plus/crosshair icon, regardless of theme. stable pcmanfm doesnt have the issue. Just wondering if anyone has found a workaround.

knedlyk commented on 2010-05-23 19:55

You should add in PKGBUILD before ./

sed -i -e "s/pcmanfm.desktop/pcmanfm2.desktop/"
sed -i -e "s/pcmanfm.desktop/pcmanfm2.desktop/" data/
sed -i -e "s/pcmanfm.desktop/pcmanfm2.desktop/" po/POTFILES.skip

Or better to rename

cp data/ data/

I've installed gvfs but no automounting. Any ideas?

karabaja4 commented on 2010-03-31 01:02

Optional dependencies (at the moment pcmanfm 0.9.3):

gvfs - mounting of local and remote drives
gnome-menus - for applications menu and "Open with..." dialog
