Error handling inside Sequence FM has been improved – to avoid accidental crashing-

To use Sequence FM you should have, at least, these installed (Debian base as an example):

sudo apt-get install python-pyqt5 python python3 file-roller

Default locations: You can place Sequence FM in any location. I recommend /usr/share/


If needed make python files executable: chmod +x

Run with: python

I decided to keep this filemanager as unix like as possible. As I prefer terminal commands, I left out move,copy or removal commands. I believe those are best served via terminal client. See here for more:
