Sequence FM v.4.1 & Gtk-Tools v.1

14th of July 2017: Sequence FM v.4.1 and Gtk-Tools v.1:  Download as a zip package.

This is a bug fix release for Sequence FM. Now the file manager can open files with external programs like it should. An added feature to this release is the terminal command support. If you write: firefox, albix, vlc (or some other program name) to the address bar and press enter then the program will open up. You can also use other terminal commands like rm -r to remove files or folders. Be cautious with terminal commands and use them only if you know what you are doing.

Here is Sequence FM v.4. Code is now a lot cleaner and minimized to (about) 189 lines. In this release I placed resources under their own respected menus and also made right-click menu layout clearer.

Also, a notable change happened to copy, paste, move and delete functionalities. The previous now have their own program: Gtk-Tools, which is dedicated to handle those actions. Gtk-Tools is made out of the old Crosslinker FM code and thus it might seem familiar.

Crosslinker FM v.6 arrives

Here is a new version of Crosslinker FM. Version 6 brings cleaner code. I have now removed music playback features that were on previously released V.5. Playback features will return as a standalone music player. Also, now the xdg-utils is removed and Crosslinker will open files with clearly stated default programs – instead of trying to find the system default. The previous is better for performance and functionality. Continue reading

Here is the latest Crosslinker FM release. Version 4 brings new outlook, which now comes partly because CSS integration. There has also been many bug fixes and code cleanups.  Version 3 was a development release, which never got released – so that is why Crosslinker skipped a number. Below, are the list of changes version 4 brings.

  • CSS integration and style added.
  • Layout is redesigned.
  • Open file button now uses xdg-open and opens file formats with system’s defaults.
    • Supported file formats include: pdf, abw, odt, txt, png, jpg, ogg, mp3, mp4, avi, midi, xcf, mpg, mp2, flw, swf, m4v.
  • File menu dropped since it no longer needed.
  • Resizing issues are fixed.
  • Compress file to zip function fixed and working.
  • Button hinting made clearer on folder to zip button.
  • Crosslinker is now independent. It does not require Simple-mount or anything from my other projects.
