Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on Sep. 02 2008,17:20Does the clone plugin work?
You could also invoke cp with something like "cp -a %f %D"
Posted by Big_Pc_Man on Sep. 02 2008,17:31I was hoping there was a configuration file that could be changed to adjust how the copy button works.
Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on Sep. 02 2008,17:35Sorry, I thought you'd have researched it already. See the "configure" button in EmelFM.
Posted by Big_Pc_Man on Sep. 02 2008,17:54I see, I didn't know about the plugin stuff. Yes clone is installed. It doesn't provide for a simple copy from one panel to the other while preserving permissions. I suppose I have to study up on emelFM. It doesn't look there is a simple answer.
Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on Sep. 02 2008,18:46Did you try the cp command?
Posted by Big_Pc_Man on Sep. 02 2008,22:49Ok, I now have a better idea how emelfm works. I would like to create a new copy button which is easy enough to do. I see how I can assign a bash command to a button. So I would like to create a command like "cp -rfp %selected_file_active_panel %selected_inactive_panel". What do I use for the panel file selectors?
Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on Sep. 02 2008,23:09Did you see my suggestion in the first post in this thread?
Posted by Big_Pc_Man on Sep. 02 2008,23:27You mean it's as simple as:
"cp -rfp %f %D" ?
I'll give it a try.
edit: That works great! Thanks for the help. It just took awhile for your answer to sink in.
Do you know if new buttons will be persistent? I have the /opt folder persistent and of course home/dsl is backed up. Is there a file I have to add to the filestool.lst?
